Screen decision help
Hi everyone. I am in the process of redoing my home theater setup and could use some help with my screen decision. I had a planar 7130, 6 years old that died so I just purchased a Benq W1070. I had been projecting the planar onto a gray painted wall and have always been happy enough with the picture, I am not particularly fussy. I will use the projector to watch football games and movies, and the kids will play lots of video games on it.
However, I am now moving the projector to another room and will have to hang a screen from the ceiling, which isn't an issue. Now I am trying to figure out if I should go with a wilsonart/pvc screen, or a spandex screen. I am leaning towards the spandex, it will be less expensive and allow me to put the center channel behind it, but I am a bit concerned about the brightness of the projector on the screen. It will be easy enough to darken the room if I want, but watching football games and playing video games usually need some light, so you don't spill your beer. The screen will be 5'x9' and I do have flexibility about the placement of the projector.
So any thoughts or advise?
