I am sure you get these all the time and for that I apologize if it's annoying to constantly get asked. I am in the process of turning a room I have (12'Wx14'L) into a theater room (a small one for sure). Lighting will be almost non existent as it is a room that I can control ambient light in. The walls are being painted Black for screen/ceiling and dark grey for walls. Throw distance will be from back (so around 13 feet). Seating will be at 12 ft. Ceiling is 9ft high
I am looking at:
Monoprice 120' Multi Format White (1.0) Screen
Panasonic AE8000u Projector.
This will be for 98% Movies with a lot of 3D and 2% Games if any.
1. Is the white 1.0 the way to go for the screen or the 0.8 grey? Again, most all movies will be in 3D
2. Will this be a good setup?
3. With 9' Ceiling, I was planning on mounting the projector on ceiling but not sure how far down I should have it. I think the top of the screen will be approx 3 feet down from roof if that helps. How far down from the ceiling will it have to be mounted or can it throw from top?
4. Will the Panny work with a 120" screen at 13' without it blinding people sitting at 12ft?
I want to get some great 1080p 3D with good contrast which is why I picked the panny.. But I am hoping it's not an overkill for the area I am putting it in.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
