I am currently finishing a dedicated home theater. The room is 14' x 22'. The lighting can be completely comtrolled. There is no ambient light. I have a Epson 8350 projector and would like to get a 110" screen that is accoustically transparent. I have looked at a lot of options. I am trying to find one that is budget friendly but quality is a close second on my list. Any recomendations out there? I will post pictures of the ultimate man cave later.

EDIT: i want to go with a fixed frame.

Begs the question, but what is your budget? "Budget friendly" is user-specific.

What are the screens you have considered so far?

i am looking to try and spend between 400 and 800. i have looked at the Jamestown frames with the Seymour center stage material, which is where i am leaning right now. I saw the dragonfly screen but without a dealer no way of knowing the price. Everyone that i have talked to has said that a woven AT screen is the way to go. I have no expertise when it comes to Audio/video. i am a carpenter that is trying to make something look and preform as best can be.

Jamestown and Seymour fabric will be the only real option in your stated price range. Most alternatives will be 2-3x that.

OK, I guess i will go with JT and Seymour. Eventually you gotta take the plunge

Another option may be getting a fixed frame screen from visual apex and center stage XD material from Seymour. You can install CT XD over VA frame without any modifications.

VA frames are made from aluminum. They do not shrink and do not have/need support bars in the midle. This is a more expensive option compared to Jamestown and it probably makes more sense as an upgrade for those who already have the frame. But it is still within your budget.
