You have to look at the whole system. In other words, projector, room and screen. Do you have a projector in mind? If not what do you want to watch on your projector, movies, sports and or 3D? What is your budget for the projector? What is your room like, size and color? What are you doing for audio? Need to know this, so that room for the audio can be planed. For a 13' viewing distance I would look around 120" diagonal (16:9). I would be careful if going over 138" diagonal (16:9) at that viewing distance. If you would like to get more into this subject more, shoot us an email.

I like the Epson 5010 paired with a 118" Carada Brilliant White screen. If you wanted to go a little larger (133"), then I would look at the Screen Innovations Solar 4K fabric with its 1.3 gain.
