After listening with the speakers in different configurations.I think that the Qs8s are not my solution .I found the multi channel just to much, almost fake sounding on certain songs..The music did not sound as true as the 2 channel stereo.Mind you I was using the m22s in the column locations on there sides roughly in height..The M22's up front are crisp and clean sounding .I think my conclusion is a larger left and right speaker for my room size.I just fired an email off to Axiom to see when the T 80's are available .My old speakers do sound good but they are not as crystal clear on the highs, the m22's I think are a little small for my configuration.I tried setting them to small, adjust the sub levels .Eq levels .Need a little more. I guess that is why they make different sizes..

Give it a few days and tweek with the sub settings and if you still don't like it, trade up for something bigger. You do have a big room to fill.

I dunno, I always like to give speakers a good run through before making any final decisions.

Make sure you have enough in the wall for the 80's, they take up lots of room. Width and Height, are the same as the regular floorstanding models. Can't remember what your driving your system with, make sure it is stable with a 4ohm load.

Having a quick gander at your thread and thought I would offer a suggestion somewhat similar to what you were thinking about doing with the QS8. I was having a similar problem with my system and the dipoles I purchased

(yea it's not Axiom but the good people here let me stay as long as I contribute something worthy once in a while \:D )

Anyways the Dipoles just didn't sound right in the rear, there just seemed to be something missing - It was suggested to me to try and move the Dipoles to be used as rear sides and to try and use a pair of direct speakers for my rears to complete the 7.1.

That did it, that's exactly what was missing.

Panabrite, just curious as to the positioning of the M22's when you tested upfront and outside of the wall opening, were they setup on stands with the tweeters at/near ear level? I have noticed that in some rooms if they are not positioned well you will not get maximum performance out of them and they can sound weak.

I also suspect your sub is due for an upgrade, I haven't been able to find much info on Audiosphere subs and the little I have found, suggests it is ~10-15 years old. The subs these days reach alot lower and a lot flatter, this can make the M22s seem like floor standers even in rooms as large as yours, at least within the listening area, as the listening area doesn't look to be that large. The M22s + good sub, really do sound much like the M80s with no sub and if your sub is older as I suspect I think it would be nearly drowned out by the M/T80s, I know my old sub was, I barely knew it was on for many things I listened to, the upgrade in sub made a world of difference for the M22s and the M80s. Just one more thing to consider in this audio puzzle
