    I just place my Paradigm Mini Monitors from the rear to the front for break-in. I've had my system since March of last year but the Mini's haven't had much use mostly just sound effects and some music in Logic7. But anyway do you think this is a good idea to get a better sound from them?

    nope, but working on their placement and room treatments will do something.

    There placement was great I was just thinking since Paradigm had such a long break-in period that it might help to get some music on them to get a little extra. I'll keep going on my little experiment and report if there is any change or not. Oh and by the way these speaker are completely wasted as surrounds, they sound great as mains not only in the mids and highs but also in the lower frequencies they carry a whole handful of nice clean BASS.

    "I just place my Paradigm Mini Monitors from the rear to the front for break-in."

    This is an excellent idea. Set them to "large", then play some good break-in noise at about 90dB for about 24 hours. You should hear a noticeable difference.
