I got my outriggers yesterday:





It took something like 15 minutes to install (including taking pictures), so it was fairly easy.

Before:



During:



After:





Overall, I didn't really have the time to sit down and listen closely so I can't comment on the impact on sound (probably what you would get from using spikes vs rubber feets) but it did sound a bit different probably due to the increased height of the tweeters (they are more at ear level with the outriggers) or simply because of shear excitement (...placebo effect).

Anyway, the speakers are more stable now and it looks (in my opinion) awesome!

Thanks! Axiom offer really nice quality speakers at an affordable price. The speakers from SVS (specially the MTS family) seems to be another good alternative (based on the reviews I've seen).

how are the rear channel surrounds mounted. i looked at you pics and was wondering if you could just mount them flush to a wall? do they have a hole/hook on the back to mount them flush? thanks

you can easily flush mount them to the wall. the brackets that come in the box with the qs8's are just for this purpose. just to point out the obvious, be sure to mount them to a stud in the wall because these puppies are heavy (14 pounds) and they vibrate so much that they will work them selfs loose from just sheetrock.

JohK, Haven't been on this thread in a while...noticed you got the Outriggers on your towers. They look great man. Did sound quality improve in your opinion?

New Axiom owner!! Finally got my first pair of QS8's yesterday!! They look damn good!! I can't wait to set them up this week end...

I was supposed to order 2 pairs of QS8's from the Outlet but went a different route. For an extra $50 I got a new pair and used the other half of the money for a new TV Stand. Ill most likely be ordering the 2nd pair from the outlet early next year.

Theres still a lot of work to do in the HT/LV area so once everything is redone ill post some pics.

I'm sure I will... I was surprised how fast they got here! Placed the order on Tuesday morning, got an email late afternoon saying it was shipped and they arrived yesterday!

They look fantastic! The top grills are a bit of a pain to remove though... I had to wedge something in there and slowly pop it up to reveal that sweet black and white speaker The only thing I didnt like was that T bracket they include with it... seems kinda thin, a little cheap to be honest.

As long as you make use of all the mounting holes on the bracket, that speaker aint going no-where. I actually used wall anchors on each and every mounting screw and that keeps the bracket on there solid.

That is precisely the type of bracket that comes with these speakers. This is how the back of the speaker and the bracket look:

i am so considering ordering a whole set up from these guys. i have been impressed with everything so far, except i have not heard them yet. i will see if there are any one inthe area i can go listen to them.

the factory outlet area, is that cool to order from? i know they may have minor blemishes, but they say they are 100% working correctly. you can save some money that way boy. check out this cart i put together, now bare in mind i was going to use the QS8 for surrounds and the QS4 for back surrounds. check out the link

http://www.axiomaudio.com/shopping_cart_disp.html

i might be able to get away with not getting the sub cause i have a cambridge 1000wt powered sub now in mahogany finish. so if you take that out its jsut about $2025.00 and that my friends is a smokin deal for a whole set up

The link to the shopping cart shows up empty for security purposes, i think. As far as the factory outlet goes...I think Johk and a few others have taken advantage of the deals they offer there and they have been pleasantly surprised at the near mint condition of the products. Very minimal cosmetic stuff that is barely even noticeable if at all...

how do you like your m60's and your 150 center?? i was looking at the specs and they seem as big as my cambridge newton T200 towers i am using. i have T500's as well but not using them yet. the problem i am having is findin a decent center channel that will fit my shelf, but be below the height of my plasma screen to not interfer with it. this is how the whole speaker buying idea came into my mind. i already have some kick a$$ speakers, just a not so good center. so i want to make sure my front 3 speakers are all matched. so thats my issue.
