Default run in cabinet??

I have just rec'd my Alpair 7 speakers and have not started on the Fh3 cabinets yet. While I am building these cabinets, is it worthwhile putting the A7's in some sort of temporary cabinet and using them to begin the "run in" process. I have not tried full range drivers before and read a lot about running them in. I just want to get off to a start.
If the answer is yes, then does it matter what sort of cabinet. By this I mean will it effect the run in.

Run is a must for MA drivers according to Mark.

Special cabinet is not required; you can connect the speakers and let the rest in their boxes.

Mark recommends soft music with non repetitive patterns (vocals, jazz) for first 100 hours, and the gradual introduction of more rhytmic music after that. 4-6 hours of run in at a stretch, followed by a break.
