Forsure they work! If you want proof all you have to do is check out the specs for the new military 'soundwave' canon. It's hooked up by, you guessed it, Monster Cables!!! That is all the proof you'll ever need my friends...




(what? You say the military has a long, sad history of spending 50 times the required amount of money that's needed on frivolous materials with no reguard for common sense or sensible spending??? Hogwash!!!)

That sounds like a Monster Fable.

Possibly, but I wouldn't put it past them. Actually I would, they probably use wires costing 50 times what Monster Cables run. Monster Cables probably aren't even priced high enough for the military. Sad.

I'm sorry it took so long to get back but between the holidays, listening to music on my amazing Axioms and tweaking my SMS-1, I've been busy. Anywho, I hung my QS8s using some minimally intrusive anchors and while they do hang a little funny since the included brackets are a bit floppy they are secure.

Now I have a new problem. I have a 52" wide AV console that my TV and my M22s sit on. Ideally in my new place the M22s should be further apart but that would require stands. I'm seriously considering replacing my 37" LG panel with a lovely new LG 47LH90 (47") which will force me to locate stands of some sort to put the M22s on. I looked at the Axiom stands but they don't fit my decor and also I have my uATX media pc sitting on the floor next to my console. So, I'm looking for some smallish shelves to put my M22s on top of that I can put on either side of the AV console. They'll need to be quite narrow. Less than 16" wide I think. Also, I could use the extra storage for BDs and such that the shelves would afford.

Any suggestions?

Check the classifieds in your area for stands. A can of black spray paint can do wonders. If you want shelves and storage, I would suggest one of those unfinished furniture stores/websites. Look for telephone stand or foot stool or bedside tables then you could stain whatever you buy to match your console. I'm assuming your still a student and wanting to save some money, so you can again go back to classifieds or second hand stores and see if you can find some matching bed side tables. Strip them down, put a little decorative moldings on them to dress it up, and again stain it to match. Just a couple of suggestions.

I needed some speaker stands years ago and found some in the classifieds for $20. I bought a can of black spray paint and a bag of sand to fill the pipes and they are still working great today.

The sub should do fine sitting on the floor. LFE is very hard to cancel but you can certainly try it out with the floor discs or a piece of MDF cut to fit the area of the feet and thus you can reflect the sound waves out/up vs. having them forced into the floor not that I beleive it really matters much. LFE is like a ripple in a puddle of water and it just emminates outward in all directions, but worth a try.


Well today I was crawling around my sub re-routing a few cables and noticed that the sound from it was somehow being greatly attenuated. After some investigation I found that the carpet is deep and thick enough that the carpet spikes on my sub had worked their way deep into the piles and the sub driver was actually touching the carpet! So, I popped the hard floor discs under the carpet spikes and it sounds MUCH better now. And to think I was considering selling my sub and getting one of the new SVS PC12-Plus.
