Ah, true. Hadn't thought about that. This way does give significantly more flexibility.

That makes perfect sense, for those of us that flush mount the QS's the power bracket would make it much easier and for those that need/want the FMB, the regular connections could be used. Great idea CV. \:\)

One of the things I'd like to see is a speaker system for mains and especially the center that has a much wider dispersion. Do horns, or electrostatics, or whatever, have a wider dispersion than what Axiom is currently using?

Perhaps a curved center in a WTWTW design, where the center is thicker than the ends. This may place the sweet spot to slightly off center on both sides in front of the tweeters, but it would also expand the available sweet spot listening area.

From what Ian has said on our conference calls, the titanium dome tweeters offer the widest dispersion of anything they've tried--and they've tried all of them. I don't know that they've tried curved systems, but off-axis response is a big deal for them.

Isn't this the sort of issue that B & W purports to have addressed, somewhat, with their models that have the tweeter loaded in a pivoting, ceramic, gourd-like housing atop the cabinet. A friend complains that visitors think they're karaoke machines and they try to remove the "microphones" resting atop the cabinets.

I've noticed a big difference with my VP100 on-in wall I have mounted under my tv from straight on to about 30 degree off. I've adjusted for this by increasing the center by 1db so that I can hear voices more clearly at the 30 degree off angle, but then it's just a little too loud straight on.

No kidding. History tells me these products are best left to be developed by the big boys. ;\)

Well, the Audioholics preview of the new on-walls indicates that the Power Bracket would need to be modified:

 Originally Posted By: Tom Andry
The center channels utilize the T-bracket long used by Axiom to wall mount their QS line of speakers. This makes sense as the Power Bracket is small and probably wouldn't hold the horizontally oriented speaker securely. With just one explosion played through one of their subs and the center would most likely come down. The T-bracket provides a very secure connection through it does mean that the VP100 and VP150 will need to be connected via traditional binding posts.
