I was thinking of hooking up some m2 on walls as zone 2 speakers at the back of the room to play music while playing pool without turning on the full system. I feel like that would be better than using another set of QS10s but I guess I can listen as fronts and see how they sound.

M2s are less expensive and smaller profile as you know. Variety is good. That application isn't very critical.

QS10s sound like Bose 301s except with hi-fi bass, mid-range and treble. They are also more dynamic.

I've learned that all on wall speakers with the smaller cabinet volume need break in. Not a few minutes like most speakers, but much longer. They also need a good bit of EQ depending on the room and wall. When setup correctly they are quite amazing. I can't wait to hear the QS10s.

Okay. That’s simply amazing. I have the 10s running as fronts and the sound stage sounds like I still have the center and 100s playing. These aren’t even broken in yet. Quite an impressive speaker. I do feel like if I shift them slightly behind my MLP I’ll get a little more depth and directional sound from movies.

Set everything back to normal and I am definitely going to move the 10s back to 0º from MLP. I am also going to take them off the ceiling mounts and drop them a few inches lower to increase the distance from the top driver to the ceiling. This should improve the spatial sound and create more of the surround effect. It should also broaden the sound in the room overall.

We've been enjoying one of my all-time favourite characters, Ash Campbell, lay waste to deadites using his boomstick and chainsaw. I think anyone could mistake my 4-channel for full Atmos.

The QS10 is what the QS series ought to always have been.

That's funny. Yup, I remember auditioning a pair of 301s many years ago. They were good looking, but the sound quality was a huge disappointment.

Ended up with a pair of Infinity Composition Overture IIIs. Sounded pretty darn good. Long gone.

Finally moved the 10s back to 0º to MLP. I'll get to run audyssey this evening and see how everything sounds now. I imagine it'll be a massive improvement.
