I have everything set up and I love it (as I mentioned in my other post). But, when you have something like this, you want the largest screen possible.
I'm cleaning up the room and an idea came to me. Will this work, or is it bad for the projector?
I have the Epson 5010.
This projector needs ventilation around all sides. I called Epson and they told me 8" each side. That's no problem.
In the room I'm working in there's a closet. The door is about 25" wide, the interior is well over 3' - 4' wide, and at least 4 feet deep.
As long as I keep everything back a foot or so on each side, can I put the projector in the closet?
Am I correct in assuming with the door open the ventilation will be the same as in the room?
By putting it just in or peeking out the closet I gain an additional 2' throw which will give me about a 9' wide screen. Right now I'm at 7' 5".
The closet idea also gives me better space for chairs.
What do you think?
