I am posting this outside my build thread so it gets a few more eyes on it, I need help from the resident experts here on projector placement.
I had a plan in mind, but after seeing the manufacturers posting I am a little confused.
My plan was to put the projector about 1 - 1'6" from the ceiling to enable the projected image not to hit the front row in the back of the head
Here is what I see for the Panasonic PT-AE8000:

I am going for 159", so if I am reading this correctly (and I think I am not), but the projector has to be at least 3'1 down from the top edge of the screen? Is this correct?
If so that means the projector would have top be mounted about 4 feet down from the ceiling, that seems a little odd.
