We have a saying in my homeland: the more you pick at it, the more it stinks. The Americanized version is Ignorance is Bliss.

The good news is the surround is amazing. The bad news is I lost a little of the phantom center playing stereo. I'm going to shift the MLP forward a foot and readjust the towers back to 3.5' off wall and 15' apart. This will have me at 16' to MLP. If I play music in surround mode it sounds incredible but I liked having stereo sound just as amazing. Of course when I get the walls back up the reflection is all going to change again. If nothing else it all gives me an excuse to sit around for hours playing movies and music.

Canes, I wouldn't be so quick to make a change yet. If music sounds so amazing in surround, why not just live with it for a while and see how you like it?

I'm thinking of just adjusting the toe-in. The more I think about it when I shifted the MLP back the towers are pointing directly at me. I'll see what happens if I reduce the toe in first. I can listen in surround but trying to adjust to where each sound mode is as optimized as possible.

Changing the toe in fixed the issue. Much better spatial sound.

I've found a bit of toe-in works wonders with most Axioms. The M5, M2 and M3 bookshelves didn't need it in my set-ups when the tweeters were below ear level. The on-walls don't need it either.

I'm glad you like the QS10 better than QS8 and I wasn't just hallucinating the improvement. smile

Have them set at large crossed over at 80. Andy’s set set them same way only full range. Massive improvement for movies. Explosions really come alive.

Have you tried setting them to 40?

Not yet. I've had them at 80 pretty much since the onset and had the 100s set at small until Audyssey suggested large for those and the 180.
