I guess alternatively if you were to mount two direct radiating speakers closer together than John's suggestion, you might end up with a sound similar to a single QS8 but have more impressive impact of a direct firing speaker into the listening area.

That's an interesting idea using two direct firing, maybe a pair of M2's or M3s. What about using a VP150 or would it over power the QS8 surrounds?
