- Subwoofer Break-In, what is it and should you do it?
Breaking-In a subwoofer is basically a process of playing a subwoofer for a period of time before it is installed to loosen up it's suspension for improved performance.
We answered this question because we get people asking about this a lot; "will I damage my subwoofer if I don't break it in?" The answer is no, your subwoofer will be fine without breaking it in.
While we don't show you how to break in a subwoofer in this video, we do talk about it in general, why you would want to do this and what exactly it will do for you / your subwoofer.
There are plenty of videos here on YouTube of people showing their approach for breaking in their subs. As Allyn explains, if you have the time and equipment to break in your subwoofers, then sure, go for it.
This is the video we referenced: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GztM...
The people that will really care about doing this most are those building SPL competition vehicles to get the most out of their subs right from the start.
