Hi all,

I would like to mount a QS4 on my telepost cover. I know I could use the Full Metal Bracket, but I would rather have it mount flush.

Problem is, only the center part of the bracket would be screwed into the telepost - the arms of the T bracket would not be screwed to anything as they would overhang the telepost cover.

I know the QS4 attaches to the bracket on either arm of the T. I am wondering if the T will support the speaker even if the arms are not fastened to a wall.

Assuming this would be fine for the QS4's, would the QS8s work as well, or would that maybe getting too heavy?

Make a wooden "plaque" large enough to span the T-bracket, screw it to the post, then mount your T-bracket/QS on top of that. You can paint or stain the plaque to match either the post or the speaker itself, whichever you prefer. The "ears" on the T-bracket are a too flimsy without a couple of screws on the outside to supprt them otherwise.

Ya, I was thinking of doing something like that. Was just hoping I wouldn't have to.

thanks.

Make the arms the same size as the T, then you wouldn't see them.

I would most likely try them as is and go from there. Once the center of the T is well anchored I think the arms will be OK.

^I might just do that when the time comes. Not sure if I want to move my surrounds off of the back wall and put them on the sides (one wall, one telepost) or just leave as is and when I go 7.1 put the new ones on the side.

Thanks again for the demo today Jason.

Darren.

You are most welcome.

I remembered why I couldn't get the DTS -HD soundtrack, I had done the firmware update but never went back into the settings to reset the audio on the player to bitstream and not PCM. I now have a new router as well and things are working better now smile

Ha. Glad you got it figured out and it was nothing more serious.

I secetly wished it was the 3808 so I could justify buying a new avr/separates wink

I disagree with Jason--those arms will bend if they're at least not partially connected to something solid.
