I'm about to start a basement theater/rec room finish (they start swinging hammers 27 March), and I've got a question concerning projection screens.
I intend to install a 7.5 to 8 ft 16:9 screen at the "front" of a long skinny (14.5 x 32 ft) room. The front part of the room will serve as the theater, while the back portion will house a pool table, wet bar, etc. The entire room will be lit by dimmer controlled wall sconces, divided into two zones, so that the theater may be fully dimmed while the pool table area may be from full dim to full bright, depending on ...
I'am about to pull the trigger on a G1000, so brighteness should not be an issue. My question relates to mounting my center channel speaker behind the screen. Are there any significant drawbacks to using the acoustically transparent material from DaLite or others?
Another question someone might address is; what gain cloth would be best in this type of moderately controlled environment? Intended critical seating position will be dead center, 12' back, with auxillary position as much as 45 deg. to either side, and then casual viewing from the bar and pool table area 25 to 30 ft back.
P.S. - My first post ! No more lurking!
