NOTE- this isnt a thread to argue about if breaking in subs is a myth or fact, its strictly for advice, thank you.
I just installed a 12" alpine type R sub with an Alpine MRP-M500 amp. The subs rated at 500 watts rms, and the amp is rated at 500 watts. Im wondering how to break in the sub, if i should turn down the amp eq level(which is what ive been doing all day, but now that i think about it seems like it could be wrong), or just play the volume low on the stereo? I have no way to adjust the sub level from my crappy Pioneer deck, obviously that would be the easiest way.
