thanks buddy, i think i might be headed in the direction of a 3rd QS8v3 to make up a 6.1 system.

I ran a 6.1 with full QS8's all around as the surrounds and it was great, but I was also corner loaded with the mains and TV in one corner of the room and the rear channel helped fill the void from LSurround to RSurround.

after lots of thinking and careful reviewing of all submitted recommendations and of course my previous experience with this axiom product i have decided to go with the single QS8v3 speaker for my center back channel to create a 6.1 system.

i realized that after loving the quality and effectiveness of the speaker for side surround duties that it would make an incredible channel 6 and it would completely match and effortlessly flow sound with the other two QS8v3 speakers to keep continuity within my surround field.

thanks to everyone who gave their 2 cents in this thing.

I have just placed my order and am hopeful to perhaps have the speaker before the 4th of July holiday weekend.

this will make 13 axiom speakers that i will have in my home and this is one of the few things that the number 13 will be considered a good thing!

keep in mind that this will not be installed until sometime in the first half of August as I'll be moving around the end of July so i won't install it until then. I will test the speaker to ensure it works, of course.

i'll keep you all posted.

please & thank you!

ok Axiomites, here is your chance to help me out with your valued opinions. i have a choice of 2 locations for placement of my 6th channel speaker (QS8v3) and wanted to know which one is liked best. remember this is a surround back center channel to create a 6 channel system.



1 - in relation to the side surrounds, distance back about 3' *


2 - in relation to the side surrounds, distance back about 9' **



please pick one (and yes, these are the only two options) and state why you went with the one you did.

*so it is understood, there is an arch way across the room that bumps down about 8" from the ceiling and that is where option 1 would go with the given distance from the side surrounds.

** this location is the rear wall of the house in relation to the side surround speakers location.

thank you in advance for your help. i look forward to your responses. wink

Probably the best answer is going to be, "whichever sounds the best". I would mount it temporarily in both positions, if possible, and try it one way for a day or 2 then try it the other way of a day or 2.

can't mount it temporarily, no way to just hang it from walls that are almost 9' off the floor to test it. not to mention that one is in the middle of the room. i know it's always whichever sounds the best, i just wanted to get some actual opinions based on the 2 scenerios i put up.

but thanks anyway.
