This type of thing is done. It's called a "Passive Radiator".... but it has very specific design requirements.
Typically used in sub woofers, tho I have seen them in small-ish bookshelf speakers.
The passive radiator design requires a sealed box to operate properly.
In a un-sealed box the results will be unpredictable but it will probably act as phatt has said...

...non working speaker becomes a flapping piece of cardboard...

Not to mention the fact that the box is likely not "tuned" in any way to the speaker(s) parameters.

Please note in the link below they say..."When used properly"

If it ain’t broke I’ll fix it until it is.
