Sure, but the same could be said for every break in the vapor barrier. Doors, windows, electrical outlets, switches, etc...

As I mentioned, I assume the speakers have been designed for this. If not then I wouldn't do it. At 3 inches deep this wouldn't be much worse than most outlets and they don't usually end up soaking wet from condensation.
