nice little place, but...... 15 feet is too far back for that room you'd have a 16 foot wide screen for most CRT's.
First ho high are those ceilings? you have to consider where the PJ will come down into the room, a Marquee 8500/9500 are 16 inches tall so add another 3-5 inches for the mount or superstutt and your at the 20 inch range down from the ceiling.
Second the throw distance is about 1.2 x screen width approximately, but the best way to place it is to get the screen size you want and set the PJ on the floor first on a cart and max out the size on the tube face then move the PJ till it fills the screen, this is your mounting position on the ceiling. So you have to make sure it wont bump your head. Barco Pj's are not as tall
and Ampros shortest hight wise for an 8 inch and larger tube size is what i would get(tube size not the ampro but they are nice but hard to find).
Dwin's are the smallest but are only 7 inch tubes and I would not go larger than 80 inch wide for a screen.
You also need to consider parts replacement, Barco and Marquees have tons of parts available so its not an issue, sony Pj's have some parts issues with the Big 9 inch set(G90) but the G70 is a better option for Sony.
And you have to read and learn about set up, its not an easy thing for those who are not technical, I assume you are. but another warning once you get into CRT you'll get an obsession you cant control!! be Carefull
what started out as one marquee 8000 turned into 6 marquee's.
And i still find myself looking for more!!!!
this is what you need to readhttp://www.curtpalme.com/CRTPrimer_1.shtmhttp://www.curtpalme.com/ElectrohomeMarquee.shtm
from here you can look at the other PJ's on the side bar list.
