tune your fm station so it only gets white noise let it play for two weeks. you can listen to music during that period but switch back to fm when you arent listening. this works for cables also.

Buy this and just play the ’Pink Noise" track over and over, be careful of the others, they "can" damage your amp/speakers
I bought a $69.00 CD/DVD player and this disc, specifically for burning in things: https://www.amazon.com/Cardas-Acoustics-Irrational-Efficacious-Burn/dp/B00OY8UXME The disc has Pink, Brown and White Noise tracks, that can be played on Repeat. They do a great job. There are six Seimens CCAs, that I don’t want to unnecessarily wear, in my system CDP (thus- the cheapo player). In the decades that I professionally reconed speakers (as a warranty center for EV, Altec, JBL, Cerwin-Vega, Gollehon, Cetec-Gauss and a Waldom reconing center, in Orlando, FL), I never had a repair come in, do to a sagging suspension (unless they’d gotten soaked in something).
The above doesn’t include down-firing woofers, such as might be found in a Leslie, or subwoofer system. I have seen those sag.Front firing,the top of the bass driver sags/leans forward and causes polling, Kef B139’s were known for it, so were my Kef B1814 bass driver and also I believe Lowther drivers had very tight magnet/coil gap and needed to be rotated every now and again.
YEP: another 20 yo zombie-thread (as Ralph calls them), resurrected by someone with nothing better to do.At least back then there were a lot less snake oil fuse and hrt etc etc voodoo threads
Burn in for speaker suspension pliability/compliance is a real thing
Anyone paying attention will notice; the B139 and 1814 drivers didn’t have a round frame/front suspension. The Physics of having flat, horizontal, mountings (in most applications), would come into play, regarding sag But; I never saw any KEFs or Lowthers, in the shoppe, so- what do I know? Any documentation/evidence, beside your opinion, regarding the typical, round, front firing woofer, outside of those that have been stored in boxes, face down, for extended periods of time?
But; I never saw any KEFs or Lowthers, in the shoppe, so- what do I know?You don’t. So I’m telling you.
Search yourself (just Google "rotating speaker drivers") plenty to read.
Many very tight magnet to coil gap drivers or heavy coned ones also, that sound like their polling, "can" be fixed just by a 180 degree rotation.
Other ones I remember that sagged, were the 1st model Reference 3A De-Capo and the bass driver in the bigger old Klipsch. La-Scala, Horn etc
And it is the same knucklehead doing it over and over.At least there’s no duplicate threads being posted, taking up space. Burn-in is real for audio’s mechanical devices, like speaker cone suspension, phono cartridge suspension ect. Not so much for semiconductors or even caps (after they have been polarized,that is done quickly).
And no, I do not have any upgraded fuses in my system.That’s good as there are way too many of those snake oil threads around, as I said.
SO, Georgie- You’re telling me you have nothing but opinion pieces and anecdotal evidence. Funny, but- that’s what you're constantly whining about, regarding fuses. btw: No one, thus far on this thread, has said anything about suspension break-in (or electronic burn-in) not being real. You just enjoy changing subjects/shifting targets. You are (somewhat) entertaining to engage in conversation, however, on occasion (good for a laugh). ie: No one, BUT YOU, ever mentioned fuses in this thread. Responding to your yourself now? Skipping your meds (snakes in your head), lately?

So now your a doctor??? Please leave my health out of it.
I said why "some" drivers cones sag and then the voice coil scraps in the magnet gap, you can’t understand it, that your prerogative, I wondered then why the anger.
BTW I mentioned fuses as just one of the analogy’s for snake oil burn-in beliefs.
PS: Now I looked at your history, your an avid fuser, that’s why your backs up 🤦♂️.
