I am in the process of remodeling my media room. I am painting my walls and ceiling a dark flat maroon and blacking out the only window to make the room extremely dark. I have an Optoma HD20 projector and currently have a Gray Wolf 2 screen. The Gray Wolf 2 screen has a 1.8 gain gray screen in a pull down configuration and measures 106 inches. I accidentally put a crease in the screen a few years back and would like to replace it as part of the remodeling effort.
-Room Length = 14 feet 6 inches
-Room Width = 10 feet 9 inches
-Throw Distance = 13 feet 3 inches
-Center of Screen = 5 feet from floor
-Front Row of Seats = 8 feet 8 inches from screen, Eye level = 3 feet high
-Back Row of Seats = 13 feet 6 inches from screen, Eye level = 5 feet high
-Room Lighting = complete light control with no exterior lights
-Budget = I'd like to spend $300 - $400 if possible
-Projector Lumens = 1700
-Projector Contrast = 4000:1
-Screen Size = 106 inches
-Projector Usage = 60% sports, 20% movies, 20% video games
Although my current screen is ok, there is a considerable decrease in the brightness of the image when sitting on the first row, where the eye level is 2 feet below the center of the screen. I'd like to fix that if at all possible. I'd also like my next screen to be a fixed screen.
Please help me by providing a recommendation for a screen. If I failed to give you any of the necessary stats to help with your recommendation, please let me know.
Thanks so much!
