Preparing for a 130" Diag. 2.39:1 Silver Fire v2.5 3.0 Drywall Screen

Here is a nifty little Theater project.

Rm Dm 16' W x 32' L (offset)
Screen 120" x 50" 2.39:1 Drywall substrate Skim coated, sanded and sprayed with Silver Fire v2.5 3.0 (...subject to enlargement to 130" x 54" <141" diag> )
Projector Panasonic PT-AE8000u
Throw Distance 15' 7"
Screen Wall 16' W x 10' H
Distance to Front Row "Eyes" 10'
Distance to 2nd Row "Eyes" 15' (..on a 10" Riser w/2 Clark Tactiles)
6 Audio Transducers mounted behind the screen for direct resonant Reproduction of Center Channel (uhhh...the Screen "is" the Center Speaker. )

As the images illustrate, this project's Framing, Wiring, Insulation and A/V system Pre-Wire is done. Drywall is now stocked, and expected to rise tomorrow?

I hope so....because I am pressing to get a I(mage up onto the Wall within 3 weeks.

I'm going to make a special effort to document the forthcoming steps, from Wall Prep, to Paint Mixing / Straining / Spraying / Gun Cleaning, Trimming, to any unexpected "items or issues" along the way.

I am interest in you project. Are those transducers any good when compared to typical woofers speaker system? That's lots of work putting the traducers in the wall. Good luck with your project.
