    Default Break In Period

    I've read quite a few reviews, and manuals that require a break in period for speakers...I'm assuming this must be true of most high end speakers.

    What is the best way to break them in? Especially if you a 5.1 ot 6.1 system.

    I've had my speakers for a month now...and they sound wayyyy better than they did before. And hopefully get better.

    Cheers.

    I find that playing "I Will Survive" at high volumes is the best and fastest way to break in your new speaks.

    Just keep playing them from this point forward and you will find that next month they sound even better.

    I prefer the sound track from Saturday Night Fever with disco ball and everything

    Thanks for all the help...I think :)

    I'm wondering if there is a specific procedure that we should follow...Or just pop in Metallica and let'er rip for 12 hours straight.

    Actually anything with a wide frequency spectrum should work. I sometimes use a "torture track". In my experience, the tweeters break in quicker than the woofers and loud bassy notes will help. Some speakers like B&W and Gallo need 200 hours of break in. Pain the ass but worth it. Good Luck.
