RELAX, I got your back, man. You should have come to me first.
I have a pair of Fusion 10's I have had a couple of years now. That Eminence 10" pro woofer is VERY stiff right out of the box. The sound is very thin and just doesn't sound right, there is no bottom end, at first
. The stiffness contributes to the low distortion, so that's a good thing.
Think of it like a very high quality pair of leather shoes that feel too tight when new, but after you wear them for a while they break-in and feel good forever after that. That's the Eminence woofer.
That particular woofer needs a break-in. I don't mean for a few hours, I mean for a whole month
playing at normal levels, 100 hours. You could do a special break-in, but that's really not necessary, just play them and enjoy them. You'll find they sound better every day, and after a year they are phenomenal.
New mid-bass modules not needed. Just be patient, good sound awaits.
