    I can hear the Bad Ass design team now, "there's a few square inches over here, let's stick another port there!"

    Those speakers are definitely bad. Notice I dropped a word.

    In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

    The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to good analogue reproduction.

    Opening scene: A non-descript white van pulls up to the curb and the side doors fly open...a shady hoodlum jumps out and whips open his long black trenchcoat to expose his MASSIVE-ly bad ass speakers.
    Hoodlum: "Hey man...wanna buy some speakers? They're bad ass."

    I bet a Coconut Audio power cable on a PC playing MP3 files will transform them into superlative speakers that are the envy of the world.

    Dropping either word would have been appropriate.

    The "Bad Ass" 2.5's are a much better speaker. It has an I-Pod docking station built on top of the speaker.

    My idea of a "bad ass" however falls under the catagory of the likes of Jessica Alba.
