    I suppose when it comes to actually hearing a before and after difference, that is where the majority of dissension occurs.

      I have no doubt some people are really able to hear better than others, partly from less deterioration of their hearing due to sonic damage and/or aging, and partly due to very specific training from listening, but I'm also sure that some people, maybe lots, have a much better imagination than hearing, easily influenced by expectations for a variety of reasons. I make no claims about my hearing ability nor am I pointing fingers at anyone specifically.

          Dissension indeed - Much nasty ado about personal perception.

              I have discovered that even very used woofers if re-boxed and re-shelved for an extended period of time, their suspensions stiffen up again. Also, the continuous pull of gravity can set the voice coil either high or low in the gap, resulting in some audible distortion. So yes, broken in drivers usually do sound better. Mr. Bill might choose to disagree based on his personal perceptions.

                    Why don't you start cussing and cursing, name calling like you usually do, then this thread will get locked down too! LOL

                            Lets hear it. With some drivers I think there is a very noticeable change in sound. I think it is even more noticeable on tweeters though. I also think part of what is going on, when drivers are in the cabs, is the cross over parts burning in. I think with tweeters it takes longer for them to break in and really open up.*
