Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.


Unlike electro bits.. where Break in is typically dubious or imaginary.
Drivers have a fabric/composite Spider which is essentially the things spring.
These DO soften from initial manufacture with usages... intentionally.
No News there... or at least there shouldn't be :-)
How long does this process take is the real question.

Vandersteen used to fill a room of just received Drivers and attach them in series then apply wall plug power for ~ a week.. for initial break in purposes.
Notably Vandys still required a fairly long 'owner break in' period as well.
Only said used to as I'haven't seen their current prod techniques. However I recently bought some Mark Audio Full rangers and they Absolutely bettered after about ~200 hours usage.
Going from What did I buy!? to: hey! these aren't bad for what they are.
