Can't remember/understand Throw calculator

I have a 10 yr old RS1 (JVC) at about 19' woth a 106" 16x9 screen, and will be upgrading soon
I don't remember how to interpert the Throw range.
Can you place a PJ anywhere within the listed range for a given screen or do you have to pull the PJ back or forward to only one spot to make it fit your screen.
I don't remember that being the case.
I think I remember setting my PJ, and then manipulating the lens to make it fit the screen, is that correct?
thanks

The calculator give you a range that you have to set the projector in. The range is measured horizontally from lens to screen. As you move closer to the short end of the throw, you gain brightness. The range for your RS1 with 106" diagonal 16:9 screen is 10'-3" to 21'-3". A new RS520 would have a range of 10'-9" to 21'-6".
