I totally understand the speaker is heavy and the bottom woofer does present a design challenge in a new type of stand. How about just wrapping the two posts in the same boston cherry covering as the speakers. That might get rid of some of the black and improve the WAF. Just a thought.

We'd love to hear suggestions on this one. The challenge is of course having a design that lets the bottom woofer fire freely, and doesn't make the stand top&front heavy. Would something like a music stand's U-shaped support have more appeal, do you think? Or have you got any ideas already that might look more streamlined?

Ah, okay, so it isn't the two-poles-vs-one-pole. Gotcha.

I wanna see a M100 flagship model. Priced around 3 to 5k and devastatingly bad ass. Full range with active sub in each tower.

That or a professional line of studio monitors.

That's an untapped market that Focal has taken great advantage of.

Oh, I guess it's already started. solarrdadd posted the following on the forum:

the last QS speaker i got had the power bracket mount and they said they all will be like that from now on.

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