BTW, this is not something I would normally recommend, but a) they cost 8 bucks each and b) this method worked great for me; mine sound incredible and have unreal amounts of bass as compared to "fresh".

Well, you just might do so if you don't use common sense. Be careful and mindful, but don't baby them. They can take more than the spec sheet says.

True, but compared to breaking in a set of Alpair 6P... Just a little nervous is all. I turned them up a bit and am surprised how decent they sound, still not loud enough to distort though.

I am so glad you said that.

Mark's drivers deserve at least an order of magnitude more respect and patience than these little Tang Bands!

They can handle a lot of abuse without issue. I made them "click on multiply occasions, even with a 300hz high pass and they still run fine. I'm sure I've heated up the VC more than I should, but never for to extended period of time.

Definitely those W3-881SI are probably one of the best buys out there in 3".

I like red on an enclosure. It seems to brighten the sound!

Not my favorite, but the only spray paint color available in my "supplies closet". You forgot it makes the sound come alive with shocking results.
