Thanks!
Good evening and congrats on the QS8's
Just an idea, I would see if you could get a hold of 2 pizza pan wire racks like they use at a restaurant and set them on tables and set the speakers on these

Take off the pizza pan and you have a wire rack that allows the bottom speaker on the QS8 to breathe

Okay, just asking because I hadn't seen any mention of it anywhere yet. I suggested the idea on the Axiom message board, so I'm glad it actually got made.

BTW how are those dual EP800's sounding? I left a message for you awhile ago in the Axiom woofer thread.

Ahh, I guess I missed it. I'm actually up to four EP800s. I know, there's something wrong with me. They do the job. It's a lot of subwoofer for my current room, but I got them in anticipation of the bigger space in the basement, whenever I'm ready to move my system there. But yeah, low-end is definitely covered, but I'm still considering getting a ButtKicker LFE kit. Ha ha.

Lol 1 EP800 is my next purchase. I just can't figure out where I'm going to place it.
