    Default Subwoofer Break-In

    Do the subwoofers have to be broken-in for 20 hours or more as the Polk literature says?
    What is the best way to break-in my Polk GNX-104 subwoofers?

    Should I take the sub box out of my truck and hook it up to my home stereo and leave it on for a day or so?
    I am not in the truck for very long periods of time so it is going to take a long time to break them in inside the vehicle.

    Mike,
    Just let them play music at a normal volume level and this will loosen up the suspension on the woofers gradually. Over time you will notice that the woofers will produce more bass information without having to drive them as hard. Plus they will have better pitch, definition, and detail. I would recommend leaving the subs in the enclosure in the vehicle. A good crossover frequency for these subs is 80 Hertz.

    Thanks,
    Kim

    Thanks Kim.

    Do you mean play them at a "normal volume" for 20 hours?
    I probably have about 2 hours on them so far at everything from normal to about 23 on my Alpine deck which is rather loud.

    Mike
