I like the look of the direct radiaotrs mounted up high like that and they look to be far enough away to have pretty good dispersion so the benefits of the QS8s are nullified, IMO.

Actually, I felt the benefits of the Q's went away in that location. No back or side walls to realy yreflect off of. Back wall 11' away, side wall 7' away, backs 10' apart. It seemed the Q's did not project in this very large and wide open location.

I sure am loving the M80s and VP150 up front though. Sweeeet. :o)

If you order white speakers you would likely not even notice them on the ceiling.

I actually almost painted these white, then decided to put them as is for a while. I will probably do a visual test by covering in white paper, to see how white speakers might look. I wonder if white speaker cloth is available. I'll Google that later. I also thought about ordering M2's (same size as these) in Beech to match fronts. I am thinking white to match ceiling and white grilled side in-wall speakers might be better. I'll try the white option first.
