I just thought the amc theme fit with the headphone co. They're both a lil known American gem that's both speedy and deliver a better bang for buck performance than the other big companies imo.
I don't think there's any confusion whatsoever about the name unless your reading comprehension isn't very sharp or you just haven't been paying attention (no offense meant btw). They're Mad Dogs, period, anywhere I see them mentioned outside of this thread that's always what they're called, that's what Dan named them. At most I've seen it abbreviated to MD or preceded by "a T50RP mod". They're made and sold by MrSpeakers, which is Dan's company.
Alpha pads are just the latest version of the pads and it gets tied together interchangeably in the thread because everyone already knows they're talking about the Mad Dogs... Same for Darth Dogs, it's just a cute nickname for Mad Dogs with blacked out stickers (like Darth Vader...), it's been used in the past with other headphones (Darth whatever). Lastly, the Javelin is a really obscure reference, I had to google it to find out it was a car (with like a 7 yr production run?).
I'm not saying Javelin's a terrible name or anything, and I rather like the way your Mad Dog mod came out... But the Mad Dogs already have a name, not sure why Dan would ever change it or (worse) why the community would try to do it for him... It's already built up a reputation or brand, and to an established business that's as valuable as anything else, regardless of whether a few people happen to like the name or not... The fact that they know it already > them liking it.Edited by Impulse - 4/13/13 at 6:54am
