Where would a set of the QS8's be more benificial in a 7.1 set up? The right and left side surrounds or the right and left rears? I am thinking the sides but would like some input.

Thanks
Phil

I have the paradigm AMS-150R-SM in there now and was thinking of replacing them. I like the inwall look but I think they are lackign to the QS8's in ability. They do put out and sound very good forand inwall thought.

Sides.

I use QS4's on the side of my 7.1 system, and the effect is theatrical. Sound is everywhere but never directional. It changed my whole 5.1 system of sound from the back on/off to 7.1 sound engulfing the whole room.

QS's are meant for side surround application and can be used for the rear channel as well.

I use QS8s for side and QS4s for rear in a 7.1 setup.
