View Full Version : 2226 recone question

So is there a rule of thumb on break in of newly reconed woofers? I was going to use a 60 Hz test tone through a Crown amplifier. Should I exercise the heck out of the woofer? Duration?

I just use 'em. I wouldn't run my new car down the railroad tracks just to soften up the suspension nor would I artificially age new drivers just making noise I don't want to hear. Unless it's really loud 60Hz won't move the cone much anyway.

Thanks! Maybe I will push them a little bit to see what "gives". :D

Temporarily close the ports, and toss a little bottom end boosting EQ at them. It'll take more amp power for a while, but it'll get you increased excursion and break them in faster- and go boom better :)
