Friends, I apologize, I personally been a bit busy here. We do have a phone number and multiple sales people to answer questions if you don't get me directly http://www.smxscreen.com/smx-sales.html

If you send a PM directly to me here, sometimes it can be a while as I am not always checking PMs here. If you don't hear back from me in a timely fashion, please send an email to one of our sales people or call us.

Best,
Ruben

An extremely satisfied customer. I order 2 SMX acoustic screens - 103" diagonal and a 110" diagonal a couple of months ago with total ease and I believe I got a great deal!

Service - Dealt directly with Ruben and it was a pleasure. Originally I had ordered one of the screens as 115" and changed my mind last minute to the 110" (after production was started) and Ruben was very accommodating.

Quality - Just amazing. I have them setup with 2 JVC RS10 projectors and the picture quality is superb. The acoustic feature of these screens, the velvet and the frame build really stand out.

Thanks Ruben and look forward future dealings!

I've been trying to make contact with SMX also with no avail. I'm looking for an acoustic transparent 2.35 curve screen 88" - 90" with gain 1.3 or more (equivalent or better than Firehawk). I need this ship to Hong Kong, can you tell me the turn around time if I place the order immediately ? I have 6-7 weeks before finishing renovation and moving into new place

thanks a lot,
Geoff

Hi Ruben.
What is the gain on your grey cineweave material?

Do the blacks appear darker in a lightless room with a grey screen vs a white screen? I've always wondered about this.

In your opinion, do the positives of using a curved screen without an anamorphic lens out weigh the negatives? My room will be completely black. I'm going to use light absorbing materials everywhere. So, the advantages for me are even light distribution across the screen and immersion. Is this a good trade for the barrel distortion you described earlier in the thread?

Was the screen at CEDIA curved or flat? It looked flat, but maybe my eyes are not working properly. I plan on having a similar setup to what you and Peter had at CEDIA, so this would be helpful.

Sorry for all the questions, but I'm still in the design process and I'm trying to figure some things out. I want to the screen to be a 1.85:1, 190" wide with masking. Can you email the pricing to ***************.

Thank you. I know you're a busy man.

I sent this to Ruben, but thought I would post here too.

So I am sold on the ProCurve, but have some serious mounting to a false wall issues. I looked through the guide that your salespeople at SMX sent me and saw the false wall page on your website. However, I am still struggling with the gap at the top and bottom of the screen.

I am building a false wall with columns on each side and a soffit above with a small stage. If I build a window to recess the frame in I need something to mount your mounting bars to.. false wall, so it's 24in from the back wall - can't really attach them to that. Also, I want to "frame in" the frame with moulding and would like to eliminate the top and bottom gap (curved screen creates this gap) between the top of the window and the bottom. Make sense? The pictures on your website show the screen with a gap in the center at the top and bottom and I would like it flush with the front wall (recessed).

I've looked through the forums and have not seen how this is achieved.

Any help appreciated.

Mark

Hi Mark,

Once you build the false wall, will you have access behind the screen from the sides of it? If so, you can build a shadow-box style opening and mount the screen from the back and recess the entire screen into the shadow-box.

We can draw up a few scenarios for you to mount it or if you want to give me a call I can probably explain in more detail.

I sent you a PM.

Ruben

Is it possible to buy just the frame? I have someone willing to sell me their unused SMX fabric, but would like the SMX frame to go with it?

thanks.

IMHO, I don't think this is a good idea. I think it's Ruben's frames that are the expensive part. Back in the day when he was selling the fabric, a 12' roll cost me about $700. I don't think it would be worth it when you factor in loss of warranty and installation support. MAYBE it would make sense if you were getting the used fabric for free. But you are paying for it, right? So your savings would be just the delta between the fabric costs. Just doesn't seem worth it to break down one of Ruben's excellent complete packages (which includes excellent support, I hear).

Also, the fabric has been improved upon over the years. Do you know which generation you'd be buying?

I have been away for about 2 years now. Having purchased a 10' wide SMX ProLine from Ruben I have been thoroughly enjoying every aspect of it since.

Well, my wife and I decided to purchase some land and are starting to plan out building of our retirement home. I have attributed a 24'x36'x12' room that will be underground for the new home theater. I am planning on a 210" (almost 18') screen.

I am definately thinking of the Pro Curve but having great experience with the Pro Line I might stay in that rehlm.

It is good to see a lot of old friends still banging away on their keyboards and posting on this thread.

So here begins about 6 months of planning again. I learned a LOT from my former build but will be making this new theater much grander (a word?). And SMX will be at the forefront (pun intended).

Joe

Starting Research for new Theater. New Theater will be 24x36x12.

I was in on the the first batch of SMX screen material and can only say it's the best deal going for an AT screen.

Great picture, great sound, killer price.

I know that most people think that having an AT screen is a "luxury" but after you experience it, it's a necessity. Seamless panning, coherent, pinpoint imaging.
I cannot imagine not having one.
Good luck on your latest venture, Ruben!

can you tell me if I can still buy the smx screen matirial with out the frame, Im a big diy'er
and I live in australia and its hard to get anything like this here plus Im on a bit of a budget but that dosent mean my ht wont kick ass!
here's a taste of what is to come for my home theater.
integra DHC-80.1 preamp
infocus sp8602 projector
monster avs2000 power conditioner
5 jtr triple 8s for the front's
4 jtr slanted 8's for the surrounds
2 jtr captivators subs
1 electro voice CP4000 pro amp
4 EV q99 pro amps
1 EV q44 pro amp
1 home theater pc with 10 terabyts of storage

I'm curious as to whether or not these new ProPanels for native 1.78:1 screens will work on products from other manufacturers such as Carada? If so, I am there!

David,

I'd guess the P-panel fit the SMX frame only especially the panels for a curved screen.

Maybe I'm wrong, therefore, give Ruben a shout out.

I'm fairly certain the answer is no....when the panels first came out for scope screens, they worked with SMX screens only. Reviewing their website again, that still appears to be the case with both versions of the panels.

Ruben,

I have read a lot on this forum, and have a unique issue, and was hoping you could help. I am installing a projection screen into my main living room, and need to fit it into a specific opening allowed by the architecture.

I need an acoustically transparent, fixed screen that has an edge to edge white surface, and can be made in a custom size, 67.5" x 141", and no exposed mounting hardware.

I just posted a question to sales@smxscreen.com, but thought I would post here as well. Can SMX make a screen like this for me?

Thanks so much!

Has SMX been looking at getting their ProMask line THX and ISF certified out of curiosity like some other screen companies?
