Hi guys,

I'm building a home theater and I plan on having a ceiling mount pull down screen of 120-130" diagonal size. Due to limited access to the attic once the room is finished, I want to go ahead and put the wood blocking support in between the ceiling joists for the screen. Any suggestions for where I put the blocking to accommodate a variety of screen types and makes? I haven't had time to research the screens so I was wondering if there would be something I could put in during construction that would cover most screens that I might wind up with.

Thanks.

With my Elite electric screen the 3 mounting points can be adjusted across the entire top of the case. I put in 3 2x4 braces then adjust the mount points on the case accordingly.

Thanks - that is what I suspected. Do you know if this type of mounting is fairly common with screens?
