Hi Folks; I'm new to Axiom and this forum,I'm breaking in a pair of M2's that will be used as mains with a sub. I'm currently using them set at large starting with low volumes and have gradually increased the volume over the last three days Where my volume currently is at 38 and my max on my avr is 65 playing a wide spectrum of audio cd's. I'm curious as to what procedures you have used,or if you feel it's necessary? Thanks

It's not necessary.

Yeah, it's not like it's a car engine. Playing 'em loud at hour 1 is as safe as playing 'em loud at hour 1000, and should get you the same excellent results.

Go ahead and enjoy them.

Regardless of the drivel one hears from some speaker companies AND reviewers about the so-called "break-in" period, what is actually breaking in is your ears, not the speakers.

Actually, if you're running M2s as "full size" speakers and keep turning up the volume, you'll turn "break-in" to "broke".

Exactly why I've played them at very low volume to this point. Never had intention to play them "large" under normal listening,I'll let the sub shoulder the burden.

I would change them to small with a crossover of about 80 hz or so to the sub.

That's exactly how they're set now,just not sure they have what it takes to be the front mains,even with a sub. Thinking I need something with a little more oomph.
