well originally that's what i had planned. unfortunately i changed this when i was framing the wall. after all the drywalling was done, i said the same thing. There isnt much that is going to change at this point. I guess just put that with the things i would do differently. That being said, if you think that a 106" screen is still possible, then I dont think I'm losing much.
So you think that about 6.5' between the rows? Thats the size of the platform basically. Using those numbers suggests a riser at 16" high? That seems pretty high
Floor to bottom of screen 24"
Height of seated front row viewers top of head 42"
Height of rear row viewers eyes 36"
Screen to front row viewers eyes 11'6"
Screen to back row viewers eyes 18'
Minimum riser height 16 1/8"
When i just measure I had something like 11 for the front row and 15/16 for the back. But again, I have never done this before. Also, I saw some pictures of peoples platforms on here that had a bar top behind the riser. I was thinking of doing something similar. If i went with a smaller screen say ~95" maybe this gives me a bit more room.
