Hello!

A friend of mine just moved into a new home, and b/c he knows of my home theater "hobby", he asked me to help him get set up in his new media room. I've been helping friends for years getting their HT set up but up until now the display units have always been flat panels. This time I'll be helping with a projector and screen.

The projector he purchased was an Epson 8350. For the screen he purchased the ER110WH1 from Elite Screens. He didn't have a tape measure with him so I didn't get to measure the room but just from knowing his screen is 110" and his room being 14 feet deep, I know he's going to fall a bit shallow on the throw. He was sold on a 110" screen b/c the previous owner had one of the same size. Looks like the projector will be mounted about 8 feet high from a bulkhead.

So, I've got to questions and would greatly appreciate any advise.

  1. Any advise for mounting this particular projector?
  2. Any thoughts on the screens from Elite Screens with this particular projector in mind??

Thanks in advance for the help!!

The Elite Sable screen is a decent budget screen (my niece recently purchased the 120" size) and a good match in this price range.

For the mount pick up the Peerless PRG-UNV (yes it's a little more than your standard mount) and you will find your installation will be simpler and easier. Read the reviews if you're skeptical.
