Does the sound of Axiom speakers change significantly with "break-in" or "burn-in?" If so, how long does it take them to break in?

All speakers take some break in time. To break speakers in quickly, play heavy bass music for a few hours. The volume does not need to be loud for successful break in to occur.

bout what. i like to use dynamic music in all areas for to break in stuff. speakers are mechanical and they do break in just like you would break in a car. the motor, surround,spider all break in and loosen up and stuff. cables do not break in, they are not mechanical, some say it makes a diff some dont. but what happens with cables is the dielectric comes up to charge i believe. i do not think there is any moving of atoms or whatever.

Exactly how long would a device with one degree of movement and only a couple of individual parts that is moving, in some cases, tens of thousands of times a second, need to break in?

Whee! Flame war!

My question (honest question, here) is if mechinical break in on speakers is real, why don't they keep breaking in? Why don't the woofers eventually just start flopping all over the place?
