hey guys just bought some monitor 70 series 2s.i have an older pioneer vsx-906s receiver which the specs say puts out 100 watts a channel.i think this should be good for a while.i also have jbl venues and jbl balconeys for the back.was using the venues for the front but will use them as rear stereo speakers.now my question is how do i break in the 70s i never have broken in speakers before but have been reading about it.so if someone could tell me it would make my day thanks

Use them and they will break in. Simple, eh!

Welcome to Club Polk, as stated use normally & the break in will take care of itself. All you have to do is enjoy the music and movies.
Congrats on your purchase, welcome to Club Polk. :cool:

Take a hammer to each driver three hits is a good starting point for break-in maybe a small tap here or there to fine tune it!!
Welcome to Club Polk and enjoy the tunes!!

You have to put them in the freezer for approximately 42.3 hours then start out with volume on 1 for 24 hours a day for 3 days. Gradually increase volume every other day by 1. When you have completed the cycle with the volume at the 10 setting, gradually work your way back down the scale using the same method. Then you need to buy these magic dots....... Oh, F it, just listen to some music. They will break in on their own.:lol:
BTW, welcome to the jungle,we've got fun and games.

Welcome to the community.
Use them normally as other have said. If you're going to really turn it up, the receiver may not be the best choice. It will audibly sound fatiguing.

Welcome to Club Polk taylormade1ca! :smile:
Congrats on your new 70s purchase! :cool:
As pointed out, "Break in" is a simple process of using them at normal level to let the new driver parts adapt to each other. As you use them, you will find they open up and simply get better after each and every usage. Your receiver should do for the time being but will definitely not reveal all of their musical ability so as money becomes avaiable a new AVR or amp should be in your future.

I had that receiver for like 10 years! It's got decent power, but no DTS :(

Turn them on and jam out for a few days to speed up the break in period. Or just use them as you normally would and they will break in in a relatively short period of time.
