Hi guys. looking for some advice.

I'm moving my Panasonic AE-900u to the basement after 4 years. It was in my den but even with an original Silver fire 110" screen on drywall it still was not bright enough for daytime viewing.

In my basement I will be sitting ~10-12 feet from the screen which I would like to be 110" again since I have a nice velvet-wrapped frame ready to go.

With full light control, could you guys offer some advice/suggestions on which paint mixture you would suggest for my situation/projector. My projector only has ~600 hours on the original bulb.

Thanks guys!!! I want to use this for movies, video gaming, and feeding internet video sources via a computer via HDMI.

Matt

Hi!

RS-MaxxMudd LL for a rollin' job. Silver Fire v2 2.0 if you can spray and you want better contrast performance. Since you've already been viewing on a SF Screen,
I'm hoping that spraying is still an option for you.

SF v2 2.0 is a very light shade of Gray that is very bright (1.2 gain) but retains significant contrast enhancing properties. In a Light Controlled setting it will serve your older Panny with distinction.

silver fire v2 is a couple shades light in color than the original silver fire.

as a point of reference... a silver fire v2 3.0 screen is slightly lighter in shade of color than silver fire 1.75 is.
