I just picked up a W1070 for my living room. I don't have total light control, the screen will go over/in front of the fire place and I need to mount my center speaker behind it.... I can't seem to find this combination anywhere...

My setup in case it helps... http://www.floorplanner.com/projects/25837737-projector#details

Thanks!

I guess size would help! I need 100-110"

That would be because the AT fixed frames start at about $1000 and go up, never mind adding electric drop down hardware to the price.
You need to figure another way or bump your budget big time.

Are there quality AT cloth suppliers that would sell just the cloth? If it's not grey, is it possible to paint an AT screen? What's the feasibility of getting a motor and putting a screen on it?

Why are they so expensive? I know it's out of stock, but minus the grey, this electric AT 100" screen is only ~$350 http://www.amazon.com/Elite-Screens-ELECTRIC100H-Electric-Projection/dp/B000YTRFEG/ref=sr_1_6?s=tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1368112171&sr=1-6&keywords=projection+screen

Read this screen material test report, it will explain the things that make a good screen. AT is after the non AT but the heading in the pdf was never changed to say AT.

In the DIY Screen section, there are some who have made their own motorized screens using a motorized window shade motor and hardware that they purchased separately from a blind repair supply company. Just a thought...

I don't really think that painting an Acoustically Transparent screen will do any good for the acoustic quality of tthe fabric.
