I know a stereo shop that used to plug woofers into a wall socket when they came back after being abused, so they could be fully blown and sent in for warrantee.

What was amazing is how long some speakers would actually survive.

As far as breaking in, normally when I have a new woofer I'm going to be dragging out all my "rambunctious" type recordings anyway, so I usually don't worry too much about breaking them in on purpose before putting them in a box. A few days of Flecktones, Fourplay, Spyro Gyra and Burial and they're good to go.

Nature takes it's course normally. Breaking in a new driver is one of my last valid excuses around the house to put the volume up a bit
