Like anything of high quality in life, our Front SoundStage speakers require a thorough break-in process for optimal performance in our Jeep Wranglers and Gladiators. They're just like a fine pair of leather boots, a high-performance engine, or an Italian espresso machine.
And in the case of our speaker system, we want the santoprene surrounds and fabric woven spiders to get used to tens of thousands of peak-to-peak excursions per minute. We want the silk domes of the tweeters to become accustomed to seamless transient response between notes, so as to deliver a near-perfect listening experience.
You gotta let 'em warm up, find their way into your path, and let them do what they do best. Three honest-to-goodness hours of actual play time allows the system to settle into a lifetime of flawlessly reproducing the soundtrack to your adventures.
