    Default SDA SRS upgrade burn-in time

    So I have got my new RDO-194's for my SRS and SRS 2.3's, what is the recommeneded procedure for burning in the new tweeters? I am assuming they need the same treatment as the crossovers when they are first installed after mod. Do I just let them play at a decent average low volume at home while away at work during the day? I have seen the devices that do the burn-in over a quicker period of time outside of the cabinet... any thoughts?

    Just use them as you normally would.

    I wouldn't use them outside the cabinet without a crossover connected, that's an easy way to destroy a tweeter.

    Just play them as normal. Just don't turn the volume knob up to 11 for a little while.

    Don't try to burn them in outside the cab or you may end up burning them for real.
