A one pole design would look good if it could be done.

A simple way to do it would be to have a base, one pole and on the top a plate to support the back of the QS8s with 2 anchors as found on the T-bracket.

So, I take it noone is into mirror finishes?

I think that would be so cool. Especially in locations where they are used for music only. Mirror finished M3s mounted on a wall with a white FMB.

With his woodworking skills, he could make quite the suicide stake.

Aluminum covered Axiom Speakers (Think M2 or M3 for music use only). Here's a video that shows how to turn aluminum into a polished mirror. Just go straight to the end, if you just want to see what polished aluminum looks like.

This is a great thread. We are constantly looking for ways to improve our products. We have our ongoing research into how to continuously make them sound better and we have all of the other various ideas, which to a large extent come from customer comments, as to how to make them just better. Creating “Customize Yours” allowed us to incorporate all kinds of suggestions that otherwise would be pretty much impossible to do because we would always have to decide if it would be something most customers would want. With “Customize Yours” we can incorporate things that maybe only a few people would want.

As noted earlier in this thread we recently redesigned the Power Bracket used with our on-wall products and incorporated it into the QS models. The QS models also have a binding post input if you are using them with our stands or Full Metal Bracket.

Shortly we will be introducing a feature to Customize Yours for matching your walls. There will be a place to input the brand, colour number, and finish of your wall paint and we will make your speakers to match. For specialty colours a sample can be sent to us and we will match it.

Ever since the introduction of the VP180 there has been much discussion of introducing a VP160 centre channel, and I see it has come up again in this thread. In light of this I think I will commit now to have this product ready for shipping in December. We will post some renderings of it in the next week or two.

There was some discussion here of a studio monitor. A lot of studios use our products now but to really have a true studio monitor is should be powered. It is our plan for some time in 2012 to bring out one or two of our models in a powered version as “Studio Monitors”.

We are also working very hard right now to have the amplifiers back by the end of December. It is going to be tight but we are close. It was a major redesign.

There is also something very new and very cool we have been working on for years that will be ready by the end of this year. It sits between your pre-amp and your main amp and is designed to work with the M80 v3 and the VP180 v3. Soon after it will be available for the M60 v3, M22 v3, VP150 v3, and the new VP160 v3. This is the major next leap forward in sound quality we have been working on for years. They don’t come along all that often so we are very excited about it. Expect a lot more information on this one at the beginning of October.

i'm adding this to help untie your lips: :-D
