For a home theater with about a 15' wide screen wall, 23' length, and 9' ceilings I was thinking of a 128" diagonal (~118 x 50") Carada with BW material and a Prismasonic 1500 lens.
Do you think the RS-1 would be able to power this sized screen with relative ease given the bulb dimming factor (and calibrated lumens)?
I don't think I'd want to have the screen much larger than this if I want some breathing room from the side walls on either side for audiophile tower speakers... unless you think I can go somewhat bigger (the next size up in the Carada line is 136" diagonal) and still meet my needs and keep the RS-1 bright enough over time. I will probably have the front row at about 11.5' to 12' back with about 15.5' to 16' for the second row given recliners.
Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!
