Hey all, noobie here surfing at work, and am completely overwhelmed haha. I've recently decided to convert my basement to a HT. It's a large room, half dedicated to the theatre, the back side of the room is up for grabs currently, probably a bar area. Anyway, I snagged a w1070 at a solid deal on cybermonday, painted the room on a whim on my last two off days. Black screen wall, kendall charcoal on all the other walls, unfortunately still a white ceiling/trim. I didn't pull the trigger on painting the trim/ceilings dark to keep some of the "appeal" to the room, as it's a large part of my basement/main floor (bi-level home, walk in downstairs, walk out upstairs in the back yard).
Anyway, I've got the room painted, my pj sitting, mount on the way, and I'm off next Fri/Sat/Sun and plan to get everything together. I've settled on a DIY spandex screen. Painting is out because my room has tacky wood paneling with grooves and I don't feel like filling/sanding them all because I don't trust my abilities in that. SO I'm tracking on the frame and all the pieces to build that, I'm capable when it comes to this. I'm thinking white over silver will suit my needs. The room will be used mostly at night (I'm a night shifter, so I keep late hours) and is semi light controller. Blackouts have been put on the two windows, and it's pretty damn dark. My issue right now is the silver you all speak of is out of stock. I'm looking at a 13.5' throw for a 124" screen.
Any w1070 guys here with some feedback? Is there anywhere else to get the silver other than spandex world? 3.5 yards of each seems correct for my potential screen. Thanks guys, please go easy!
