I don't think you actually have to change spaekers unless they break.

tubes can last anywhere between like 3 months to 3 years
Can we erase the past?

Don't change your speaker unless it breaks or you want a different tone.

wouldnt a wore speaker (not broken) sound like crap ??


A good speaker should not wear and should stay tight for years.

No, they actually sound better than brand new.

Maybe because your ear has developed and you finally realize how horrible your MG sounds?

Trust me, the more you break in a speaker the better it sounds.

I'm in the process of breaking in a new cab right now actually. The speakers have started to smooth out and become less harsh in the mids and highs, and the lowend response has improved as the suspension is starting to loosen up.

Same here. My Man O War is starting to sound really smooth after a couple months.

Well i don't know if your ears can handle that ? What amp is it?

The louder the better but it's not a necessity.

haha, thanks man, far from it though unfortunately, I'm still learning like everyone else. appreciate that though.

those Eminence seem to take a really long time to break in, I have some Heats that took forever, and I've owned Legends that were the same story. Great sounding speakers, but wow are they stiff new. These Celestion V30 seem to break in a lot quicker, at least with audible differences, but I'm trying H30 for the first time, and they seem to be pretty stiff.

everyone has their own ideas of how to do it. I use the method Celestion has up in their guide if they are brand new, just to get the suspension moving a little using my amp's clean channel.
