Hi, Ive searched quite a bit and although there's tons of great info, I haven't found any solutions to my dilemma. Opinions needed.
(See Attached diagram)
recently moved into new house and have decided the best position/compromise for my first projector.
I have a 90" finished ceiling height with 9-10 inch drops for HVAC. The space I have is about 12.5' W and 18' D. I intend to place the FP just behind the the center drop (about 13' out) keeping the lens as high as possible and will somehow place long thick curtains along the open right side.
My problem is that I would like a 110" screen. My Subs are 22" high and the centre that sits on them is about 10" high leaving me 58" to the ceiling. Main Speakers aren't a problem as they are 9' apart. A roll up screen housing will eat into my height and a fixed screen with 2" border will just fit right up to the ceiling. If having it there is a good thing, then I'm in business even in planning for a future second row of seating.
If I have the centre above the screen, will the screen be too low to properly see from 2nd row?
If I spread the subs apart and get a stand for the centre bringing it to the sub's 22" top height, will it be too low and not properly project the sound?
I'd like to not get a perforated screen for audio/visual compromises ( within a limited budget) as well as having the screen closer, pushing seating back and possibly forgoing the second row.
Just trying to get the best advice before I mess things up:D
Thanks to all
