Here's some stuff to break your speakers in with....

That elusive piece of the overall equation, so many options and so little time to test them all — Celestion, Fane, Eminence, Jensen, JbL, Utah, Ceramic, Alnico, 1x12, 2x12, 4x12, 2x10, 4x10, 1x15, 2x15, 4x15, 1x18 and I'm sure there are even more!

I'm finally getting broken in but it feels like I'm about to break down.
So let's just git 'er done and we'll talk about the details later.

:thumbsup: No kidding!!! It took me probably 15- 20 hours to get mine sounding right...What were they smoking?

I got my Hiwatt 50 watt combo spanking new... it took about three band rehearsals and a week of playing at home to get them to sound looser. As opposed to using test MP3's, what about just playing the heck out of your amp at serious volume, perhaps with a few pillows covering the speakers.

Would facing your cab down into a mattress hurt the speakers LOL ? That way you can seriously turn it up !

OMG I can't believe I posted this thread almost 10 years ago... :shock:

re: original files, I still have that CD somewhere. Will do my best to dig it up and re-host the tracks.
