I'm wondering if anyone here has heard any speaker break-in effect for either of small Axiom fronts. . .in other words, any changes in speaker characteristics after 50-100 hours of use.

Axiom has stated that their speakers do not require break-in nor that the sound characteristics change over time due to use.

Your room/placement, volume, any processor settings enabled and the quality of the recording you are playing through your speakers at the time will be the biggest determinants on the perceived quality of sound. Psychoacoustics is another important factor to take into consideration when judging a speaker over time.

I have noticed break-in with some W22's I just hooked up (but not mounted in wall yet). The difference is in the low end. When I first applied power to them, they sounded tinny to my ears. I've played 2 CD's on them, so far, and the bass gets extended as I listen to them. I think most people would call that "ear adjustment" but I don't think so. Not after just 2 CD's. Same with the M22's I bought 3 months ago. The more I listened to them, the more bass I noticed.

I 'think' my 6 year old M22s/VP100 and QS8s sound as good today as they did when they were bought. Is that a long enough speaker break in?

Another break-in thread, why don't people search...no there is no breakin, contrary to what some will tell you readmc. However, your brain does break in.

Whatever you do, use a low-watt tube amp. Any tube amp is obviously better than any solid-state amp.
