hello, new to the forum and i must say very impressed. alot of great info. I am planning on building a diy screen. it will be 120 inch and looking to use spandex for AT screen. my room will be a home theater with total light control. projector will be an epson 3010. i was wondering if i should use a white spandex or a silver spandex for a dark room. also if anyone has any links for good spandex. i live near a joanns, but not sure what i should be looking for. i read in some threads of the spandexworld spandex. can i get similar at joanns or do i need to order. any help would be great. thanks.

The Joann's that I went to (in Michigan) didn't have matte (non shiny sheen) spandex. The sales associate said that they didn't usually get matte spandex. You want a matte screen for front projection. I ordered the Moleskin matte silver from Spandexworld. I'm using a dlp projector. I replaced white sheerweave 4500 maybe, with the above mentioned spandex and I didn't have to change any color settings. I did have to change contrast and slightly changed brightness. The silver is not a dark color. It is brighter than it appears on peoples post on AVS. I think that the silver wouldn't hurt anything and will help contrast and blacks.
