How do I "break in" new guitar amp speakers?


Answer by  jpeltz09 (52)

It is not necessary to "break in" speakers. If you have high quality speakers they should sound exactly the same many years from now as they do the day you purchased them.

Do not blast the master volume but do experiment with the levels and volumes. Be loud but don't crack the tube.

Speakers don't actually get broken in. If they are high quality speakers they should sound th esame the day you bought them as they do in 10 years.

The easy answer is to plug in and play. It will take you a few minutes of playing to determine what the best amp settings are for the sound that you want, but the amp and its speakers should be ready to go as soon as you start playing.

Just use them at half to two thirds power for a few weeks. If you put to much power to the too soon they could be damaged.

play clean chords starting at low volumes progressively getting louder to break them in. do this for 10-15 hours. you can also hook them up to a 6. 3 volt a/c power source and let it run for the same period of time.

I've never really broken them in, per se. I usually keep the volume low for the first few hours of playing before I really crank them up. Also, read the manual that comes with your amp speakers, as it will have the very best advice for how to hook them up and get them going the right way.

there is no such thing as breaking in Guitar amp speakers. If someone is talking about breaking in there speakers they probably just mean wearing them out.

Too Many Non Guitar Professional Answering Here.. Yes. Guitar Speakers do need to get Broken In.. From the Manufacturer's Web Site: Brand new speakers usually require a “breaking in period”. (For Guitar)

Anybody who says guitar speakers don't need to be broken in has no idea what they are talking about. Just go record a Celestion Alnico Blue straight out of the box, then put 50 hours or more of playing on it, and then you'll understand why speakers need breaking in  add a comment
