I've never used the "silence" effect, but a few minutes reading the
manual makes me curious.

- what are the "X"s in your command meant to do?

- did YOU read the manual section about "silence"?  If so, what
   happens when you try the method it describes for trimming silent
   periods from the end of a file?

If you try it, and it doesn't work, come back and ask again... and then
it might help if you also told us what version of sox you're using.
