This is the first screen I have used without a border and you easily forget the importance of having a border around a screen - it's a must!

Turned out pretty simple to do - it's a 4" black vinyl pre-glued strip used for base boards - just screwed some 3" 2x4's pieces all around the existing frame - then attached the 4" vinyl strip with finishing nails to the 2x4 pieces..

I still love that Torus screen - it's a keeper!

I finally got my silver PVC, so am knocking up a screen to experiment with - my mate is building his theater to have a 2.1m wide screen, so I can make a torus the same size and we can do some playing - should be interesting.

DON'T feed the troll.

dok, definitely let us know how it goes. I pretty much wrote off silver PVC as a possibility when I saw how MTyson's hotspotted, but I still haven't gotten around to building a frame and ordering the Pearlbrite. If the PVC actually works, I'd love the extra pop...

I can see they are too. But just Watt/Puppies how sad... I know a person who has them but as rear surrounds... X2s at the front :D!!!! The X2's the best speaker I ever heard, bar none. It excels in every area IMHO.

OK back OT

Regards, RC
