: : If this is truly the case then what about driver alignment. I honestly thought that lower frequencies took longer to travel to the listeners ears than the higher frequencies. So then this would mean that higher frequencies really don't travel any faster than lower frequencies.

Perhaps this is due to the fact that low-frequency drivers are larger and heavier, having greater inertia than their high-frequency counterparts. Therefore, when you hit them with a signal, it takes slightly longer for them to respond to it. Once they respond, however, the sound they create travels at the same speed as it would for a higher-frequency driver.

Hope this is helpful!
