Long time follower and love the work that everyone has done. It has inspired me greatly. I will give you a little background and then ask my questions. Thanks in advance
I currently am living with my inlaws until we move in to our newly used house in late september. I am already starting my planning! The house has a finished basement. The basement is more of an open floor plan. I do not have pictures at this time and do not know dimensions yet. It has walk out doors and a couple windows in the room I am looking to add a projection screen or TV. I will be able to control with shading and that is it. There is a bar in the back that is built in as well. I do know that there is 9 foot ceilings as well.
What I want:
I want this room to be a great place to watch movies, TV, Football games and play video games. If people are standing at the bar or sitting at the couch we are putting in that would be great. I basically want a multipurpose room with a large screen to view with the best possible picture I can get. i will be setting up 5.1 audio as I already have the equipment for that from my old house.
I hope that I gave enough information on all of this. At first I was thinking a 65" GT50 as it has a great picture and should be plenty big for the viewing area. After doing a lot of reading on this forum and looking at builds of members I started to think about a projection screen. I was thinking around 100" or so 2.35 screen. I work for a company that can get panasonic projectors for pretty good price. I know a projector will fit but my concern is lighting. If the room does have some light in it will it make a projection screen not work the money? Hoe much light is to much light? I guess I am looking to see what I all need to determine in order to make sure it will be worth the time and money to install this?
Thanks again in advance and I appreciate any feed back
