Hi all,

 

I'm new here, and just got a bunch of help in the projector forum that helped me get a great deal on a JVC 4810 - it's on the way now. Now I am a bit overwhelmed with screen decisions. I would like to keep cost relatively low so have been reading the DIY forum. The projector will be going in a mostly light-controlled room in the basement, and mostly used for movies. It would be nice to be able to have some low-level ambient lighting on for watching sports etc., but it's not a huge concern. No need for AT.

 

Eventually (in a few years) when I remodel the basement, I may end up needing to go with a retractable screen. For now though, there is no need for retractable, and so I want to get something cheap BUT that won't have me missing out on the performance that this JVC seems to be capable of. I was originally thinking spandex, but can't seem to find any comparison between a spandex screen and a painted screen. Are there any posts showing the difference?

 

If I go to the time and trouble of buying a spray gun and doing something like a silver fire application, how much better will this look than spandex? Is it worth it?

 

Finally, I haven't seen that many posts about DIY screens with JVC projectors at all, and I know they are not as bright as many others.

 

Any recommendations at all would be most appreciated.

1. Silver Fire "anything" easily trumps Spandex in the Image Quality dept. So much so there is no sensible comparison to be made.

2 Silver Fire will afford you all the Ambient Light viewing potential you'll need, while also delivering a Plasma-like image.

3. I done many Theaters using JVCs and Silver Fire / RS-MaxxMudd. I stopped about 18 months ago when JVC was having so many QC issues and premature lamp dimming / early failures. I've been fixated on the Panasonic AE8000u as of late....but yeah...you betcha...if a JVC is functioning correctly, it puts up a stupendous image...and even better with SF
