A/c duct holed

Hi all
Quick question, while I was running speaker wire, I drilled through an A/C return duct. I pulled the wires through.
Any real down side to this.
we were trying to hide the wire behind the speaker, I don't have many options unless I must do something to correct.
Thanks in advance.

I'm sure we could have came up with some better option that doing it that way, but's done now.
Only a few minor issues, now the holes need to be sealed around the wire, slim chance the wire flopping around in the duct may rattle when the blowers running, the bigest one though is over time the wire may chafe without a rubber gromit for the wire to go through.

Hopefully when that wire finally chafes enough to become bare it won't blow the amplifier, just a fuse in the equipment.
Do you want it your way or the right way?
