Damn, I actually came up with 11.811.  I'm way off my game.

That's because inches vary overtime. We don't have such issues with SI metric system... just sayin' biggrin.gif

Except the electrons don't actually travel through the wire that way. Just sayin...

In my opinion 95% the same, if that. I think a 900 driver to 600 housing would be the bigger bang for the buck, but that sounds like a daunting challenge.

How does the Mad Dog with alpha pads compare with the AKG k550?

You could think of it like moving a speaker back and out of phase from the other channel.  The issue is that even with a 10 foot difference in cable length, it would be like moving one of those speakers a distance that's about 15 times smaller than the width of a hair (smaller than you could adjust them on purpose).

 

one of the first "to dos" told to me about homefi spkrcables is to keep both length THE SAME...

so now i have a pile of "extra" cable coiled on my right speaker in my living room.. :P

 

 

all for the width of a hair.. now to cut them off to make another pair of RCAs. :P

Well, a big coil of wire can also act as an antenna.

The speed of light is 11.802 inches per nanosecond in a vacuum.

 

Though the actual electrons move much slower in wire, I was referring to the speed of propagation of the voltage signal through the copper wire.  This will vary depending on the properties of the medium, but I looked up a value of about 80% (of speed of light) for a copper wire.

 

11.802 * .8  = ~ 9.44 inches, so I stand by my original statement that 10 inches is pretty much about a nanosecond.

So a gunshot right in the center will skew left to right a nanosecond ..true?redface.gif

I definitely prefer k550. It is clearer and more detailed. It is something of a closed k701

Have you guys read the Thunderpants review of Mike from headfonia? To sum up, he said that Thunderpants is more neutral on the bright side than Mad Dog and Paradox, thin mid, light bass but more treble and it is clear like crystal, a little V shaped. So what in my mind now is Mad Dog darkest of 3, then we have Paradox in the middle, finally we have Thunderpants which is the brightest of three.

 

I have a HD598 which I do not like the mid and the bass so Mad Dog is my safe choice and for the price Mad Dog better.

When I demoed the K550 at best buy (twice) I felt it was a bit too dry and boring for me. It's definitely more tilted towards the treble than the Mad Dog. That, and the K550 lacks power and a bit of extension in the bass.

I'm not sure how much I'd really trust Mike's reviews, to be honest... He reviewed the 840 pad MDs a looong time ago, so his opinions might not be totally accurate.
I used to have the HD600 but I much prefer the MD, the main reason being the bass wink.gif
It's more clean and detailed on the mad dogs.
