If i run my subs in parallel, and one set of wires going to one sub are longer than the other set from the other sub.. will the sub with shorter wires recieve the signal just a little bit faster? or will it even make a noticible difference?

i think one set of wires is about 4 - 5 " and the other is around a foot and a half - 2 ft

i have the long wires coming from the terminal to the one sub, it goes into the terminal of the other sub, and the short wire comes from there, should i re-do this so the wires are the same length or does it matter

oh come on. the speed at which electricity travels is way too great to make a diference in sound with a few extra feet of wires.

If you had an extra mile of wires, you could hear a slight timing difference.

If you are worried about it and CAN ACTUALLY HEAR THE DIFFERENCE! All you need to do is jump up one more size on your wire gauge(less resistence). Ex. if you are running 18awg use 16awg but I doubt if your ears are that good!! (:

one could be 100 feet longer than the other, and you wouldnt be able to hear the difference. Think about when you are on the phone with somebody, you dont hear a delay unless you're talking to China or something.

Electricity moves at the speed of light (theoretically). Inside a wire, it will be slower, but even if it reduced it 99%, the energy would still be travelling 300,000 m/s. It'll result in a 0.000002 second time difference.
