IQ8 as monitor wedge

So I bought some IQ8's to use as a monitor wedge and they work great except unbeknownst to me at the time of the purchase I did not realize the enclosure does not have a suitable angle on one site to be used as a wedge on a stage.  

Has anyone come across any kind of base or adapter to give the speaker a different angle when laying on it's side that is more appropriate as a stage monitor wedge?

Thanks!

Hi Brett @BrettGilbert 

I don't have the iQ8, but do have the iQ10 and iQ12 and they both have a side with the proper angle for wedges. It is only on one side, though.

Re: IQ8 as monitor wedge

@Paul_Vannatto @BrettGilbert I have a question for both of you, how do the iq 10's and 8's work as monitors. I've been thinking of getting either or. I used some of the newer QSC 10 inch powered monitors last summer and was very impressed. I didn't think one could get such great sound out of a small speaker but they were just great. I would suspect the iq would be just as good and the Ultranet perk always sways me their way.  QSC has similar power, but the IQ seems like a better fit for my other things. Curious.

@Paul_Vannatto The IQ8 has a a symetrical trapezoid shape, both the left and right side are the same angle, I was really surprised... just seems like a big oversight...

@GaryHiggins I don't know how it would match up with a drum kit on stage but the IQ8 has a very impressive output, a lot for such a tiny package.  I have yet to try to see how loud it can get before it begins to clip.
