Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

It's not scientific proof but this is what happened to me

I recently DIY built one subwoofer to make a stereo sub setup. NEW drivers and amps. So I used a test tone and SPL meter to balance the best I could.

I set the new sub using my SPL meter and recorded different levels at various tone levels. Well, I got busy and come back to it two or three weeks later. No settings were changed but the tones in the 50-70hz range increased about 3-5db. Don't take too much on the actual values because these are "rough" measurement techniques.

Again I don't believe in the magical mystical break in myth. But there is a small degree of break in. And again, if it doesn't sound right at first play no amount of break in is going to fix that.
