Does this speaker require a break-in period before they can be operated at maximum volume?

Yes. The break-in period is between 50-80 hours playing normal music at moderate volume levels. It will take somewhat longer in a cold or dry environment and a little less time in a warm or humid environment.

Why should I break-in my speakers before operating it at maximum volume?

It is important to break-in your speakers as they will produce richer sounding lows, warmer and smoother sounding mids, and cleaner highs.
