I've been following everyone's progress here and have read hundreds of threads trying to get up to speed; so many awesome projects to behold!
So, got a new house recently and it has a potentially sweet theater room. The plan is a 120"ish Sintra screen, I say 120"ish because the screen calculators I've tried out are all inconsistent with each other. My first question is, if I start with a 60"H x 120"W sheet of Sintra, what is the exact width it should be cut to for a 16/9 ratio screen? And what should the gain for the mix be; from what I've researched, this setup would not really require additional gain.
Lastly,which version of the Silver Fire mix should I be using considering the following parameters:
Projector is on order, Epson 6010.
Room dimensions are: 18'10"w X 15'6"d and 8'h on the outside, 10'9"h in the middle.
Seating distance: ~12'
Windows blacked out eventually, although most viewing will be done when it is dark out anyway. Walls will be painted a medium-dark brown earth tone, and acoustical panels will be installed.
And of course the entry will have a permanent door.
If it helps, here is a short clip of the room in question: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gFM0-...e_gdata_player
Thank you to anyone who can provide some insight.
