I am thinking of re-doing my basement setup. I currently have a 47" LCD mounted to the wall with in-wall R,L &C. I'd like to move on to a Optoma HD20 with a 92-100" fixed screen. I would still like to use the in-walls, but to have a clean look I would like to shoot the speakers trough the screen. I would like to keep the budget as low as possible and so far came up with this:

Elite Screens R92WH1-A1080 ezFrame Fixed Projection Screen (92" 16:9 AR)(AT)
- AcousticPro1080P2 1.0 gain acoustically transparent screen material

http://www.amazon.com/Elite-Screens-R92WH1-A1080-ezFrame-Projection/dp/B001A8111S/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1350523771&sr=1-1&keywords=R92WH1-A1080

So, does this look like a good match? Are there any better/cheaper options i should be looking at? Anything I should keep in mind? I am a complete newb when it comes to projection. Thanks in advance.

What's the ambient light situation in your basement? What are the wall / ceiling / floor colors?

there is zero light, as there are no windows in that area. the walls are a light blue, the ceiling is a drop-down white and the floor is a light tan. I can paint this wall to be an accent wall, so whatever works best.
