Burn in time 8351's

I'm about to receive my new 8351's with glm 2 kit. Excitement is building up!
I was wondering if there is a certain sweet spot break in time?
My previous adams and focals needed some time to break in.

I can imagine that if the speakers break in, the response and results could change over time.
If this is the case then the glm calibration also must be applied again over time when burned in?

Thank you very much!

I haven't found this to be the case...

A month or so ago i compared my demo 8240's which were from the first batch made, in the gold finish, produced in 2006 to a brand new pair of 8240's.... No difference...

Just unpack your speakers and enjoy listening to them....

No burn in is required nor does it bring you any noticeable performance / sound quality gains. The only thing that changes slightly is the woofer's suspension compliance (the suspension loosens up a bit) which makes the bass sound a little bit more emphasized (than right out of the box), but we are talking about very small differences here. And in any case, this will happen naturally during the few first hours of listening. New GLM calibration is not required or needed.
