I don't read RID regularly, but I heard he got his voicebox shot out during one of the battles leading up to the last big conflict there.
Probably a (pardon the term) shout-out to the silent Soundwave in Prime. Actually, I don't mind this kind of characterization. I always thought of G1 Soundwave as being the cold emotionless Decepticon, "uncharismatic bore", and all that-- but that role seems to have been taken up by Shockwave now, so a silent, but highly empathic (emotion-sensitive) Soundwave strikes me as very interesting.
