I think most of the break-in periods for professional home theater systems, headphones, etc, are mentioned by the manufacturer in order to give the user's brain "time" to get used to the new system, and not return it right away from first listen.

Certainly, it's reasonable that newer speakers aren't as "loosened" up as "broken-in" ones, else if there is no change... why do speakers eventually break/rip/pop/crack from overuse? Something does wear to a point of destruction, so in the beginning, that same wear may serve as a break-in.
