Where do I find the min image size for a projector at a certain throw distance?

I started construction on the theater. I originally wanted a 150" screen but my ceilings are so low that I am limited to a 95 or 100" screen due to my riser. I currently have a throw distance of approx 17 feet. I was planning on making a false wall to hide my speakers so that distance can come down a bit. I am worried that my projector won't project a 95" or 100" image at 17 feet. Is there anyplace I can find exactly what the projector will do? The projector is a Sony VPL-HW55ES.

Thanks.

According to this calculator 111" is the lowest you can go at 17 feet.

Adjusting settings according to personal preference is not calibration.
