Home Theater concern

I am wanting to set up at projector in my living room. I am wanting a 106" screen. My problem is my living room is 13'x19.5' with a 14' ceiling so I need a projector that can reach 19.5' onto a 106" screen. I've been to two stores to research and one says its possible and one says it's not. Need some guidance!!!! Thanks!!!

Have you looked at the Projector Calculator?

Anything is possible if you have the money.
If you can not find a projector that fits you needs with a lense that can be placed in that location (high end projectors have lense options)
You can add an external telephoto lens to reduce the image size.

Unless you have unlimited funds, everything you do in your HT will have some amount of compromise.. Maybe a free standing cabinet behind your seating but not against the back wall would be a needed compromise if your budget won't allow a high end machine with long throw lense.

I second this. I am running an Epson onto a 120" screen from 19' back and I am nearer the wide side of the zoom. I think I would have no trouble hitting a 106" screen. The projector central calculator seems to back this up.

While there are always tradeoffs among the projectors various features, the Epson with its broad zoom range and 2 axis lens shift always seems to have the edge in placement options.
