    Im just wondering. I know cars you are supposed to take it slow. Is thr same true for speakers? Or should you just blast them? How long does it usually take for spekers to be fully broken in?

    A speaker's driver parameters can change slightly over time. How much really depends on each individual driver. I think this mostly applies to larger woofers and midranges.

    I've seen people use a test tone CD (ie: Stryke's Basszone Test CD) and set it to play a low freq sine wave repeatedly to speed up the break-in process.

    Generally the change is minimal, so, personally I wouldn't worry about it too much.
