I've been looking at some of the inexpensive pull-down or electric screens (like the Favi at Amazon), but, I don't want the screen too high in the room.

It looks like the Favi screen has 5" of black space above the screen and the box itself must be a few inches, but this still puts the screen higher than I'd like.

How do most people deal with this, increasing the distance from the ceiling to the top of the screen? Do some brands have more black space available above the screen? Or do you mount the box on chains, lower than the ceiling? or??

Very rarely do I see people do the chain thing. Most manufacturers offer you the option of having additional black drop on the unit, allowing you to bring the screen down closer to your liking.

I'm having the same issue here. Are there any other options than calling the manufacturer to ask for more black space?

Bulid a box or soffit the depth you want and mount the screen housing to that.
