Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

is speaker break-in real?

I often see a speaker's shortcoming explained as insufficient break-in or hear that the speaker will sound even better after break in. Since speakers are mechanical it makes some sense though one wonders why they wouldn't break them in at the factory so as to do their best in A-B showroom comparisons. Anyway I was wondering if there are any tests showing changes in frequency response, bass distortion, transient response, and other measurable aspects after break-in. It would be bizarre if break-in made a big difference to the sound but not to any measurable parameter.
It's never too late to turn back the clock.
