Hi,
Is Full Metal Bracket for QS4 strong enough to hold the speaker? I see only one scree behind QS4. I am thinking of getting this one since the T bracket is too close to the wall and i can't use banana plug.

thanks.

I would guess the bracket is more than strong enough, you might want to make sure you mount into a wall stud though.

I will install it in stud . However, i am worry about the mount from bracket to speaker. QS4 has only one screw in the back.

I used the T and bare wire. No problem. Sheetwall plastic anchor only.

Yes, it's strong enough. That's the same type of mounting screw that's used on tripods.

Easily strong enough. I used the full metal bracket with the QS8's for awhile, til I switched them to my bookshelf speakers that I use for 7.1, with no problems.

I've had my VP150 mounted with a FMB for well over a year with no issues.

Is there a way to make spades work?

To me, it seems like a lot of trouble and money just so that you can use banana plugs instead of bare wire, the sonic benefits of which are arguable. But you should enjoy whatever solution you implement.

BTW, I'm totally wrong with that tripod bit up there. Not the same thing, nevermind.
