#2759 - 04/23/02 11:02 PM Axiom's view on speaker break-in?

I read lots of opposing opinions on the amount of use a speaker needs to be considered 'broken in'. Opinions range from no break-in required at all (ie good right out of the box) to hundreds of hours required.

I'd like to hear from the Axiom folks who engineered these speakers. What's the Axiom position on the break-in period? After how much initial use should we expect to hear the permanent Axiom's sound?

For the purpose of all of our testing we break in the components for 2 hours. This is lots of time to get consistent measurements from then forward from the components. I have heard of people going to hundreds of hours of break-in, which would seam to be a bit overkill.
