Hello guys,
I am in a bit of a jam here. I am planning on going with QS8s. My little home theatre is going to be in my living room (too small a house to have a dedicated HT room). But thats not all. My living room and dining are together and they are more like one large room. One half of it is where I have my flat panel on the wall. In front of that TV, along the width of the room is the couch which is the main listening position. I have a sidewall on one side but sidewall on the other side is pretty far (length of the room). I am planning on mounting the QS8s on the back wall with some kind of brakets (stands for QS8 are quite expensive). is that a reasonable approach or I am going to kill the surround effect by having srrounds on the back wall.
Thanks

I don't think you'll kill it. I tried that in my largish space and the effect was quite good with the QS8s. In a smaller space, I don't think it will be a problem at all.

I would just use the flush mount T bracket that comes with the QS8's.

I have my QS8's on the back wall and they sound great, see link below:

The far seat on the love seat is kind of odd because it is so far away from the right surround, but the left surround is directly above you- the other seat on the love seat is decent. this is not a big deal b/c i really don't have that many people over when watching movies

All seats on the couch sound excellent.

I had to mount my QS8 speakers on the rear wall and my couch was pushed right up against that same wall. While it wasn't ideal, it did work pretty well.

Since then, I've made a dedicated theater room and put them on the side walls.

Check out my (old) home theater at NickBuol's (old) Home Theater as I think that there are some pictures in the gallery showing them mounted on the back wall.

I'm in the same boat regarding the back wall location, and am quite happy with them there. My neighbour has essentially the same layout, but with a set of Paradigm dipoles, and he always comments on how much better my surrounds are. \:D

See this thread for pics.

Shawn, did you ever remedy the TV situation in that room?

The QS8s are indeed a wonderful complement to the M80s.

I'd like to know who at Axiom came up with the brilliant QS8 concept.

Ah, I would like to say that there is a 52" plasma now mounted on the wall, but I'd be lying.

Thanks Tom for grinding that one in...... ;\)

I'm here for you, buddy.

Re: OP - I had the QS8's on the back wall in a different room once upon a time. Sounded just great.
