Quickflat(wide receiver or quarterback?)welcome. For surround sound it isn't really a concern to have "too much" dispersion. My view would be that with the amount of room you have behind your listening position the dispersion of the M2s would be adequate and they'd work well, but the greater dispersion of a QS4 or QS8 wouldn't be a disadvantage.

Awesome. Thanks again for all the input everyone!

(quick-flat4) I drive a Subaru WRX that has a turbocharged 4 cylinder boxer engine. Oh, and it's quite quick too! grin

Okay; having done some volunteer football coaching at the high school level in a previous life, I suspected that might refer to a pass route where the inside receiver shoots directly out into the flat toward the sideline.

Whichever way you go with the back surround setup, you'll get added enjoyment even from 2-channel source material, since a mode such as DPLIIx can effectively extract the surround ambience from the front channels and direct it to the sides and rear where it belongs.

i received the QS4's and the ceiling mounting brackets today; everything was in good shape with no damage! I'll install the hardware and connect them during the weekend and give you some feedback. I expect it to be much like the QS8's i have in my main HT room, the 4's will make a perfect addition for my small secondary system in the basement office. of this i have no doubt!

My QS8's should be here early next week looking forward to my first Axioms I had the shipping delayed a week so hoping my timing is good nad I do not have to wait when I get home. Now next addition will be a set of M80's I hope.
