Another question - I searched and did not find a thread - When I do purchase, I will have the system in the room over the garage with the knee walls and then sloped walls. Does anyone have QS8's mounted to a sloped wall? Any ideas on whether the Axiom bracket would work?

Separate topic - I finally got my wife to talk about the Speaker Purchase this weekend. It is really kinda funny because every time we talk about spending $3000 on speakers she drops into "defensive - belligerent" mode and the conversation is, well......nonproductive. However, this time we got a little further along and actually talked about finishes. Her take is to just go with Black as that can fit into any decor. SO.....I continue to sweat out the purchase decision - I told her I had pm'd one of the regulars about doing the veneer project myself - she just dismissed that with a wave and went back to working her NCAA bracket.

ouch, that hurts. I she craft oriented? She could help with the veneer. (I sent you a more serious and detailed PM on the veneer issue.)

Ok....so I am going to figure that no one has mounted QS8's to a sloped wall? Ceiling is not an option as the Ceiling starts about 3 feet in front of the listening position due to the angled wall....

I have not seen that setup, but don't know that it would not work. See if you can get Alan to respond, he is probably the best shot if someone at Axiom can't answer this. I would think it has come up.

I'm a little dubious about using the T-bracket. It's probably just fine, but it is designed for the force to be fully vertical. Using it for an angled installation might impose forces it is not designed to tolerate.

I think the BEST approach would be to use the Axiom full-metal ceiling bracket, which I believe will allow you almost infinite adjustment between the angle of the ceiling (or the sloped walls, in this case) and the speaker.

Alan,
To Zimm's point - do you have any thoughts on the FMB?

Argon, I don't think that Alan regularly monitors every thread, so your best bet would be to call Axiom on the telephone.

Here's the product link Full Metal Ceiling Bracket

Loc: It's all about the location.
Argon, can you make a wooden bracket(plate or T-shape) with the same angle as your wall to bring things back to vertical, then attach the supplied T-bracket to it?

Tom,
I had looked at that in the past and forgotten about it - all before we decided to have the set up in our Bonus Room. That looks like it would work. I could use the rotating joint to match the slope of the wall and lock the swivel in place as well - If I understand the design......

I second the Squirrel. [Damn, that's twice today!] I don't know that they are designed to hold in the way you are thinking. I'll go so far as to say I think it is bad idea. The lip it sits on is small, you could have a heavy sharp speaker giving more life to your movie than your want.
