Speaker break in
I bought a 63 PF a while back, and it was damaged during shipment, to the point of the JBL having to be replaced. JohnK put a vintage recone kit in it that he had owned for quite some time. I also bought one of Mark's Vintage Blue repro B15 cabs, as the one that came with the amp I bought from John was a B12N cab. I wanted to have both for the difference in sound. My questions are; how long does it take to break in the speakers, and is there some other method that you guys use other than putting playing time on the speakers? I've got a number of vintage amps, but I've never had to have any of the speakers reconed. I don't gig now, and with my limited playing time ( an hour a day maybe); it just seems like it's going to take quite some time to break them in. This is according to what I've read, and I've learned to take online info with a grain of salt. Thanks for any help.
