Quattro fx/air
I am using Quattro fx ffm And have tried the Quattro air. The problem I have with each is when the pressure is high the sides of the mask narrows so that it does not cover the sides of my mouth. Any one else have this problem? Is this what I should expect?

Yes I have a Quattro Air. I have tried 4 masks so far. I have the same problem with sides leaking. I had to tighten it too much that it hurt my face.
You might have luck with Amara View, but I hear a lot of people hate it.
I keep trying others and keep going back to that one.
I would just keep trying other masks until you find one that works for you.
If it doesn't completely cover your mouth, maybe try a larger size?

I have been using the full face Quattro Air because is light and lowers my AHI versus other masks but my frustration is that if pressure increases past 12 it starts making banging noises and leaks so I had to adjust the max pressure on my machine so I wont get this issue. This is the second mask Quattro Air I have replaced, the first one, had same problem but after 4 months of use the leaks started getting out of control so I replaced it and also the head strap started stretching until the mask had to be replaced
