Outdoor theater build suggestions
I'm looking at putting together a small backyard theater, for my backyard. I live in the country so the only light I should have to deal with is sun, moon and from my own house (some light from the firepit).
I have attached a pic of the backyard, the tree line is facing west my house is on the east. Would I get earlier start times by putting the screen next to the tree line (back would be west and the trees block a lot of light at sunset)? Would facing the screen south be any benefit. Right now we are looking at using the 110x200 Carl's blackout screen in white.
I have been eyeballing the Optoma HD142X seems to get good reviews and decent lumens, also saw the Epson HC1450 it bumps the claimed lumens up to 4200, would it be worth the money for the extra lumens? I'm still searching for the right one, suggestions are welcome.
For audio, I'm more than likely just going to run to stereo speakers off an old receiver for now and will upgrade in pieces to a 5.1 setup possibly as the funds allow.
Thanks for looking suggestions are welcome.
