I plan on a home theater with a 16:9 screen (8' x 4.5', or 110" diagonal) at 1.3 gain. The projector will be a Sony G90, with a Princeton Graphics DVD player, hopefully at 960p @120Hz (which should be plenty bright).
Is the screen too large if my main seating will be at ~11 ft? There's probably another row at >15 feet, but that will be an acoustically disadvantaged row (i.e., up against the back wall) and will be used only when the 4 primary seats are filled.
At 11 feet, if my math is correct, that will be a 40 degree view for 16:9 material. Is that too much?
