Just want to give a big shout out to Chris and his team for working with me to make thing right on a botched order - completely my fault!

I had been ordering so much fabric lately for my theater build, I accidentally ordered 4 feet of the XD from their website when I meant to order 4 yards. Even though they shipped and I received the 4 feet, they worked with me to get the 4 yards without simply double charging me.

Great bunch of guys to talk to and do business with. Recommend to anyone looking for a screen.

Here is a good video showing how an installation incorporated lights behind his Center Stage XD screen in order to get that IMAX reveal look. The key is maximizing the amount of light on the speakers, while minimizing the amount of light that hits the backside of the screen. When either side of the screen is lit, the screen becomes visually opaque.

His install is a great story in DIY skills and perseverance through difficult health. Definitely a future AVS HToM...

Thanks Chris. I'm 100% satisfied with the Seymour Center Stage XD fabric. It's extremely durable fabric (much more so than I even expected). Image is spectacular and speakers sound fantastic directly behind the screen. I was unsure if I would actually be able to see through the screen when the speakers were backlit. Originally the LED threw some light onto the back of the screen but I was able to place a piece of wood above the LED strip to prevent it from spilling onto the screen which helped a lot.

I finally mounted my Seymour screen last night. It was pretty strait forward and went without a hiccup. Even though UPS (or FedEx?) beat up the box pretty good everything was in good order. The frame assembly was very simple and the frame itself is more substantial than I would have thought. I installed the screen backing material too which was a nice surprise because I wasn't expecting it. It's the 3F120WS with EN4K material. Thanks to Chris and Mike Garett for all your help.



My 8 month pregnant wife helped me lift this up and mount it. It wasn't heavy at all. The only problem is she really wants me to finish the theater asap.
