So finally, after purchasing the M80s last January, the VP180 last June, I finally bought the QS8s today (Merry Christmas to me grin) . I expect them to arrive Tuesday or Wednesday and once again I am very exited. I am sure they will surpass my expectations as the M80s and VP180 did.

I will be mounting them on my back wall using the T-bracket included. I remember reading that there is no space for banana plugs but is there space for spades or any other connector? If not, I'll just use bare wire.
I also remember someone mentioning something about having to bend the tabs on the bracket. I am not sure I understand. Can somebody explain? Any other recommendation about mounting them?

Probably not on the spades.

I didn't have to do any bending, but be VERY VERY VERY sure the tabs are in the slots before you fully let go of the speaker.

Just use the bare wire no neeed for any other connection. So far as the T bracket, check how it engauges into the tabs mounted on the back of the QS8 before installing the T on the wall. Just ensure the bracket slips under the mounting tabs on the back of the QS8, if it is a little too tight - really hard to engauge, then make some adjustments to the T bracket tabs to allow for easier installation by bending them slightly out.

I use bare wire/T-bracket in my setup as well.

IMO the QS8's are Axioms best speaker.

The Axiom binding posts work pretty well with bare wire actually. The connections on my Denon, not so much, so I use Banana plugs there.

I also use bare wire with the T bracket and it works great.

Be careful when you screw in the T bracket, if you are going into the stud, that you don't over torque the screw. The T bracket could bend a bit. If that happens, you'll never get the QS8 to line up with the tabs.
