Me too! It works every time!
Haha, yup, this.
I don’t know, amps with new speakers still sound good. Maybe you can sense a bit of “stiffness,” but I can’t say it’s ever been unbearable.
Just play the thing.
I'm in the middle of the Cannabis Rex break-in marathon. I THINK the speaker is getting better, but I might just be getting used to it. The trebles are a little subdued still for my taste, but the midrange and bass notes are wonderfully clear and distrinct from one another. I play a lot of chords, even quite complicated ones, on the lower strings, and this is by far the best speaker I've ever had for that purpose: all the intervals have their say...clearly. It's in a Princeton RI, used mostly for jazz.
More broadly, it does seem to me that some speakers get better over time; some get worse, especially the ones that sound good on first blush, which tend to get TOO loose or boomy over time. It's a tangle. We will never agree: that we know.
My experience is don't expect miracles. If you don't like a speaker when it's new out of the box, you won't like it when it breaks in either.
