I have the floor space to accommodate the QS8's Gary Vose Sr., the stands will do nicely. It's just the way the room is built.
The reason I asked about the "wall mounted" versions was for my sister, she is thinking about a surround system herself, and those would be perfect for her living room and keeps the wires out of the way. Add the QS8's for the rear on stands and she would be set.
After I get mine set up I'll get her to listen and see what she thinks.
