Speaker Break-In

Speaker Break-In

I realize that speaker break-in is not thought to be significant but into week two of a new pair of Genelec Threes, and am noticing quite a difference from out of the box. More defined bass, smoother highs. Am I hearing improvements due to the electronics breaking in as well as a general loosening of  the driver? Curious to know if others have had a similar experience.

I had similar experience with all of the speakers I had :) Some may say that is purely phsycological but I believe it happens :)  I have observed the same changes as you, more defined bass and smoother highs. 

I don't claim that these changes are "huge", a bad speaker, combined with a given room, cannot become "good" after the break-in. Or vice versa.
