Dan's definition was incomplete, looking at impulse only.

When most people ask about the effect of Mms on transient response they are usually asking if or implying that it makes the driver "slower" or "faster", which is (IMO) why John (Dan, et al) pointed that the impulse response isn't affect by mass.

What werewolf was saying is that Mms affects Q, Fs, etc which affects the damping of the system and transient response in that regard (overshoot, ringing, etc), but not the impulse. Which is what John touched on with the very first sentence of his post.....Mms affects the parameters of the driver (and by extension transient response), but not impulse response.
