    Break in time

    Ok i just hooked up my solobaric up and kicker says it takes 2 weeks to break in... my question is, will i notice a big difference between now and the time the speakers break in or will it be pretty much the same?

    other questions...
    Is it ever ok to turn my gains all the way up? (700 RMS amp, speaker handles 750) as long as it doesnt distort? Am i in danger of ripping the fabric cause that mofo HITS?

    One more thing, my amp has a remote punch bass function... is it safe for me to have this all the way up?

    A gain is not a volume control, you should have it around half or less, if you keep your gains up it can drive the amp into clipping mode which will blow a speaker because of distortion. You wont rip anything, the damage will occur to the voice coil, and let it break in, i have seen subs fry because they werent broken in. They will sound better after you break them in, my type r 15 sounds better now that i broke it in.

    a gain control is used to try and match the out put voltage of the head unit.
