Copper cables and Hi-Fi sound do obey math....we just haven't discovered the equations yet. It's not that they dont exist in theory, we just haven't the model that precisely accounts for the behavior of electrical current through copper cables. I would have thought that we did, but apparently according to you we don't.

We have to remember that before Newton, there were no mathematical models that precisely accounted for the trajectories of objects in a gravitational field. (Except that it was known by Gallileo that two objects of different weight fell with the same speed....(that was about as good as it got at the time)). Just because we didn't have the equations at the time doesn't mean that gravity didnt obey math. In fact, the act of "obeying" math is the very means through which all equations are derived in the first place. Regardless of whether or not we can describe something mathematicaly for the time being, it still obeys a logical system of rules. It is the scientist's job do decipher those rules.... sooner or later you'll get your "audio equations".....
