I recently put up a projector and screen in my family room. The screen covers my speakers and I'm no longer happy with the sound. I need to move the speakers and possibly replace my center speaker with a new one. The speakers I currently own are sonance virtuoso 832D. Does anyone have any advice on 1) should I move my left and rights to position 1 or 2? 2) should I move the center speaker to the ceiling, buy a new directional ceiling speaker or build a mount for my 832d at an angle and try to place it above the screen? Thanks

Is the screen acoustically transparent (AT)?

No. it's not. I wasn't aware that was an option. Can you suggest a 100" wide screen that would fit a budget of under $600?

Unfortunately, I think you'll have difficulty finding an AT screen - especially a drop-down AT screen - in that price range. Your best bet will most likely be Seymour AV - a lot of people here use that material.

The Seymour AV 100" wide (16:9) drop down screen is $1,765 per their website. You may wish to call them to see if retrofitting the AT material into your current drop-down frame is a possibility.

I believe Jamestown also offers inexpensive screen options (although I don't know anything about the company or whether they offer an AT option): http://www.jamestownhometheaterscreen.com/.

Check Amazon. I saw options by Elite in the $300 range.
