Default Proper speaker burn in?

Hey guys

Please excuse my ignorance, but I can't find a thread that addresses this. I'm a college kid that is trying not to burn up his equipment so here goes:

I have a tantric hdd and it is smelling quite wretched at 1k rms or so. I've only had it for a week, so before I blow it on something stupid, what is the best way to burn in this speaker to where I get those nice tantric lows?

Um..... stop clipping the hell out of the signal. Turn your bass boost and gain knobs all the way down, turn the bass on your headunit to a normal, flat level.

Now put the volume at your normal listening level, maybe a little higher, then turn the gain on the amp up until it stops sounding good (usually just sounds like an unnatural sub noise). Resume your playing and enjoy an odorless vehicle.

There's just no way you should be smelling coil on that sub at 1K. As for your original question, just play it normally, it'll break in on its own.

Some refer to "break in" as loosening the suspension/breaking in the glue...burn in is the coil over heating

And yes clipping

Ok, 1000 watt rms (likely the amps rating) and a tantric hdd 2500 rms underrated... stated "Only had it" a week, not that he bought it used...what part are the logical people missing that's more likely then him clipping in an overall sense

I appreciate your contribution also

Typical sub break in period....maybe a few hours to a few weeks. Depends upon what sub it is. I've read and heard different replies to this.

You're closer to Conroe I believe. Ever heard of Texas status? Good guys, they'll have you set up right.

Robert at Texas status didn't set my gains, however the guy that got first at world finals with the black Durango did (I was at Texas status while he set the gains).... I apologize for forgetting his name. I'm using a popcorn 4k which has the opti 4601d board so I doubt there's any clipping at 1k. I have it at .5 ohms with the gain at 1/4 with te bass boost all the way down. I also don't use a bass knob... Head unit is a cz702 with flat gains on the lower bands so I doubt that those 6v preouts would be clipping the signal that bad
