Much alcohol. You must reach the right concentration in the air. It then permiates the speaker drivers and breaks them in properly. Multiple Sessions provide the best results.

He managed a 0.4 hz drop, I highly doubt anyone would heaar such a drop/change in playback of actual material.

GR Research has also done some testing with their own drivers and came to the conclusion the speakers do loosen up marginaly after a few minutes/hours but they question whether anyone could ever hear the minimal differences they measured.

There were no measurements of the drivers taken after a significant cooling down period which makes those tests pointless. I would have liked to see the drivers after the "burn-in" period of 100 or so hours measured after 12/24 or more hours when the driver has not been in use. Not a very convincing test IMO .
