Default Speaker Burn-in

Hi I have some Creative THX 550 Speakers on my computer and I read that a lot of people get better sound out them after they burn them in.
Do I just leave them on for a couple of hours?
Could somebody tell me how to burn them in?
Thanks in advace!

Default burn in ideas

the main idea of burn in is to loosen up the speaker surround material (soft pliable ring at the outer edge of cone). You can accomplish this by playing them at moderate levels for some period of time. You may want to consider using white noise (something with a broad frequency content) and many audiophiles will wire one speaker out of phase WRT the other and place them face to face with some kind of sound absorber over them (ie a blanket) in order to reduce the annoyance. In my opinion though, you may not even need to go through all of this trouble if you are just willing to realize that the sound will get better over time (as they break in naturally).

Some of this is true with regards to burn in. On most high quality speakers with good wire you or at I can hear a difference. But with lower end especially computer speaker just play them as you normaly would and don't waste your time doing anything special, especially with computer speaker your not going to be listening to every tone with a group of people.
