i agree with you.Before anyone asks this is before I did some fine toning of the projector leveling and what not I have to say the image is bright and after running Audyssey on my Denon AVR X4000 you do not even know the screen is there or the speakers are behind it.thank you [IMG]http://*******/8e9eFH[/IMG]

Did you have a picture because I can not see? just the little X in a box like there is suposed to be a picture there. It would be cool if anyone who made a DIy Seymour frame posted pictures here and a link to their build thread. I have the X4000 as well. Do you have issues with the red blinking light (protection)?

I did not do any breakdown of the build of the frame itself, but here's my build thread. I followed the DIY instructions on the www.seymourav.com website, did not add the chamfer to the inside edge. Building the frame and mounting the screen material only took about 2 hours total. It went very quickly and easily, and I am new enough at this that I had to purchase saws to build it!

Ames, IA media room remodel - Cinema 1858

I love my iPhone, but it will never replace my turntable.

Are these just "Friction Fitted" around the screen?

And, I assume Friction Fitted, basically means measured relatively precisely so that you have to 'squeeze' them into place/ force them into place? How does that work for the 'bottom' of screen... I assume you aren't pushing 'up' on the screen (or screen would come undone from zclips)... is this piece friction fitted to the two side/vertical panels?

Also... do you think the Syfabric was needed 'under' the screen edge to avoid reflection vs the black painting you did?

The panel above the screen has speaker grill ball/socket connectors to keep it from coming loose. The ones on the sides and below the screen are friction fit - the squish of the carpet makes them grip nicely. I didn't use z-clips to mount my screen, it is attached at the top with piano hinges, and has little struts on the bottom on both sides so I can prop it open like a car hood when I need to get behind the screen for maintenance. None of the panels have ever come loose.

The velvet is definitely needed, any reflection would bug me, plus sometimes I am lazy and like to overshoot a 16:9 image beyond the upper/lower screen boundaries (screen is 2:1 aspect ratio) - for example Game of Thrones.

Yes they are friction fit top and bottom but I did put a 2" 18 gage brad nail in the corners. On the sides I wraped a 2x4 and used 2" brad nails in the corners. I think the black paint on the screen frame would work many screens are made that way with no problem. But folks recomended using the velvet and I had enough of it so I wraped it.

I wanted to try something different for the super bowl so I tested last week on Avatar which is 16x9. Essentialy I just blew up the 16x9 image to fit the 2.40:1 image width. Since it is 2.0:1 screen what I had was a image 126" wide x 65" tall. there was about 4" of over scan into the velvet at the bottom of the screen. It was huge. a total of 142" of image on the screen. The game looked great that size.

This image was from my Samsung Galaxy S5 trust me the image and screen are square the trapeziod in the picture is due to how I was holding my phone.
Form front seat no zoom


that is 142" Dia in your face

Second row with sconce off

with sconce on low the Insteon dimmers are great with these LEDs I can dim to les than 10% before they turn off
