How long to break in speakers?? - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Audio (and aftermarket electronics) This is your place for alarms, remote starters, to brag about your system, exaggerate your db levels, or simply ask questions for stock or aftermarket audio. No Flames! (except from roasted amps)

I notice a big difference from when I buy all my speakers and a week or two later. My Infinity Kappa 5.25" component set sounds much different now than when it did a few months ago, the bass is a light more responsive and they overall sound much better. They take some time to break in. I did not do this with my subs though, didn't know much about car audio back then. They still sound good though. They're pioneer 12'*, they get really deep compared to other subs I've heard. I'm happy with the money I spent.
a good place to buy car audio online I've found is www.ikesound.com , I buy all my stuff through them. I haven't had any problems with them yet, however, I do wonder how they get their prices so low.

I know the break in time for my JL audio 10w7s is 40 hours. I just tried to keep the gains low and not mess with the boost **** for 2 weeks. I did enter in a SQ competion the day after my install though, I might of turned my gains all the way up just for fun. My installer was there incouraging me, still is actually, got 5 year warrenty on eveything, if it blow, he'll replace it for nada.

Never broke in , never will
I usually blast them out of the box.
