will this void my warranty on the Dayton Audio PA310-8 12" Pro Woofers I got 4 months ago?
I want to make my speakers a bit more resistant to the damp air where I DJ.. it is on the beach. Will this help? Will this void my warranty?
If your speakers fail, the warranty [what is covered & not] is dependent of the cause of the failure. While this application will not cause failures [if applied correctly] a burned voice coil is usually due to overheating & too much applied power--and usually is not covered. If you follow the instructions on the container, you should have no worries about the warranty.

Does it really affect midranges?
I am very interested in improving the appearance of the 6.5" drivers in my timewindows. I want to expose them, but the gray textured paper cones are beyond ugly, but I also don't want to alter their sound characteristics in any way.
Not sure what your question means? This is a "fixative" that soaks into the paper-cone material, stabilizing it against age. Makes your paper speaker cones stiffer and last longer. It does not, should not affect sound quality or frequency response [that you could detect]. The trick is to not add mass to the cone.I have used Krylon clear plastic spray to do the same thing. Cheaper, too. I use this especially to brighten up old speakers when I rebuild boxes. Makes old-weathered speaker cones look brand new.Yet another alternative, is Kon-Form conformal coating [spray or paint on]. Designed for "water-proofing" PCBs, it goes on a little thicker and is flexible, making it possible to "repair" torn cones.

I used a smaller bottle on some really old and abused set of Cetec Gauss 4583 A's. I woudl of never in a million years believed the way it improved every single thing about the 15" LF Drivers. I applied with a Brush and no matter what I did or used I still had some brush marks. I have 3 HVLP Spray guns and a standard Gravity feed gun I spray my Guitar Bodies with can I spray this on teh Cones?? It would improve the apperance by 100 fold and it would be easy, If I am able to thin it a bit?? What would I use if I can to thin it to a sprayable Viscocity?? I have a 1.4mm, 1.7mm and a 2.mm options so I would assume 2.0 would be the size to use.
I'm sure you can spray it with a HVLP rig. The manufacturer should be able to give you the information on the thinner, or read the MSDS for the solvent in it and add some of the solvent for a thinner. I'm a model railroader and plastic modeler, and we've been know to use automotive paints with a "barrier coat" over styrene. I'd figure out how to shoot it thru an airbrush, so you're WAY ahead in the game. I think this might be an acrylic based product, so a trip to a well stock hobby shop for some Tamiya acrylic airbrush thinner, might be helpful, but again, check with the manufacturer, they make have their own spray thinner, which would work best. You're well aware these days "lacquer thinner" added to your clear finish may just curdle in the cup. We often have to buy "X" brand of thinner to go with "X" brand of finish. Sorry I can't be of more help, but I think this will get you started.
