So.....excited, getting my Panasonic AU-8000 today and seeing where it best fits. Hoping for a throw distance/screen size of 140-150 inch. My room is 13x22(going lengthwise, with a 10 foor ceiling height. I currently have a 100" screen that came with a previous projector purchase.

With that background, I am up in the air with screen framed vs pull down vs painting the wall with screen paint. I can do any at the moment and I am leaning towards a mounted screen, built into a faux front theater area that hides the speakers behind it.

Thoughts?

Thanks

Ken

I would go with an AT fixed frame with the speakers located behind the screen.

Thanks, that was my lean. Is this a good price at this website?

Suggest you take a look at the "Screens" forum up a ways (sub-forum under Display Devices) for more information...

I too would echo an AT screen. Having all speakers not only hidden, but anchored directly behind the screen makes for a truly awesome experience.

I would also advise looking in the DIY screen section. You can build your own AT screen for less than $500.00. I went with XD material, but you many options, including spandex and the like.

I almost wish I would have known they carried XD when built mine. I've DIY'd three now and I wouldn't want to do another one. For a few bucks more you can have a very nice aluminum frame and no cussing from velvet wrapping, screen stretching, staple pulling................you get the point. smile.gif
