hmm...that is an interesting idea. so you mean with one QS8 for the surround back and then 2 direct with the M22 point toward the listener?

No just the lone QS8 for the rear surround and then 2 more for side surrounds. I am running this type of configuration as I have a big gap between my side surrounds due to a diagonal layout for my HT and the rear surround really help fill in the void.

Use the M22s for another room

Curious Jason, how are you hooking up the single back to your system?

Most 7.1 receivers say to hook up the lone rear surround to either the left or right rear surround speaker posts(the manual will tell you which one) and then in the configuration of the speakers you set it to 1 rear speaker for a 6.1 set up.

Ok...I have decided. I have just ordered
2 x m80
1 x vp150
1 x QS8
1 x QS8 Stand
I think 6.1 will suffice for now. I will upgrade again when I am done finishing my basement. Then I will be moving my current 50" plasma to the basement and by a new 60" for current room and I will move the M22 down stairs and buy some more QS8s.

thanks, for all the help you awesome people.

Did you order from the Factory Outlet to save some $$$? What color did you order?

I did order from factory and because of the 5 item. I got an extra 5%. I got black oak for color. Didn't notice any cosmetic defect on the M22 I got...or it is just my luck?

Just need to fish some of the wire thru the wall before the speakers come now...I can't wait.

You are not alone, most report very small blemishes if any from the FO.

I have 1 mark on the bottom left corner of one speaker and one indentation on the other, but I had to really look for them. The VP150 I also purchased from the FO doesn't have any damage I can find.
