The fix: http://www.unclespot.com/C10Q.html
Example of results: http://www.tdpri.com/forum/amp-central-station/74761-uncle-spot-c10q-acetone-mod-review.html

Now, this seems like a fantastic idea, and exactly what I need.
But, I don't, AFAIK, have a variac. According to the calculator, I need 9.6V.

Now, unless I'm idiot, if I connected a 9V battery to the speaker [assuming that the speaker does indeed have a + and - bit, instead of just a clip], that work just as well, right?

Any other ways for me to obtain brilliant results in such a short time?

All they're doing is breaking in the speaker. You can use a 9V battery or DC adapter.
Alternatively, you can just use fabric softener on it, let it dry a bit more, and then break it in with your amp or stereo played loudly for a while.

Any type of fabric softener [ie liquid]?
So, if I put some softener on [with a brush], can I play through it immediately afterwards? How to apply it?

Sorry, just don't want to mess up

It seems like a nice shortcut to playing it for a long period of time.

I wouldn't use a brush, that's too much. You can definitely use too much and ruin your cone.
I'd cut some liquid softener with 50% water and then use a spray bottle, just mist the cone lightly. Let it dry before playing.

You can always hook the speaker up to your stereo and cover it with blankets, boxes, etc, and put it in your basement/back room/closet for a few days playing loudly, that will do the trick too.

^I live in a small house, with no hidden areas. And thin walls. Kinda sucks.
I don't play my amp too often , but I have cranked it many times. Just too rough and lacking in bass. Granted, it's part of the speaker, but if it can be broken in a bit more to help make the speaker sound a bit better, it's got to be worth it.
Cleans are great though, so I gather it is broken in somewhat.

Anyway, thanks. Will give it a go at some point soon. I may add more water TBH, just in case.

Yeah, fabric softener is where it's at when you're trying to fix a C10Q.
You can use a brush if it's easier, but be careful not to apply too much.

Define not too much?
Should I do it round the edges or just all over?

And I'm guessing use liquid fabric softener and not powder
