What exactly is the difference in speed (if any, although I doubt there is) for 16th note triplets and sextuplets? Is the only difference the way you accent it?

As far as I know there's no set standard for sextuplets. If any, the difference would be in accents. Some think it's accented like 1-2-3-1-2-3, some say 1-2-1-2-1-2, others say 1-2-3-4-5-6. Maybe the last one makes most sense, just accenting the first note. I don't know.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that they're identical in terms of speed.

well in 16th notes you get 4 notes within a quarter note, sextuplets are 6 within a quarter note. i feel like that should be obvious...
There isn't any difference in speed, but I would assume that the accents fall on the first of every 3 notes for 16th triplets and the first of every 6 for sextuplets.

ED: Erm, brandon, the first of those two pictures is 8th note triplets. That'd be half the speed of 16th note triplets/sextuplets. Intentional?
