Yes, the driver in a subwoofer works the same as the driver in your floor standing or bookshelf speaker and will require running in.

Your user manual may include information on how long to run them in for, however, as a general rule of thumb a minimum of 24 hours playing broadband music at a slightly higher than normal listening level is a good starting point. The driver will naturally carry on running in as you progress with using the Sub.
