I'd like to measure a speaker when new
And again after 100 hours of "break in"
I doubt there will be any difference
I don't think speaker surrounds affect the sound
And that's the only think I can think of that changes after break in
The voice coil is a wire, it doesn't break in, nor change over time (unless you're using it above rates specs)
The spider maybe does get a bit looser, but to affect the sound?
I doubt it
I think the 2 components that affect the sound a lot are the cone and the material it's made from
And the speaker basket and the material it's made from
Neither of those change after break in
