Micah, I've noticed that it's pretty hard to tell when the T-bracket tabs are fully engaged in the slots on the back of the QS8. I've mounted and re-mounted mine a couple times and have nearly dropped one off the wall more than once. I've taken to penciling a line above the brackets at the spot where the top of the speaker should be when properly mounted so I don't make the same mistake again.

I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.
