Yeah, My set up is in the basement and the reason there are two different ceiling heights is because the duct work was boxed in and thus the 84" lower ceiling height.
There is only one wall that will work well and that's the wall with the higher ceiling height, 92".
The shape of the room that the projector is going in is sort of L shaped to a degree.
The entire room is approx. 25'X16' at it's largest and decreases to form the L shape.
The projected image will be on the wall where the ceiling height is 92" and the wall itself is 16'.
The ceiling in this 25X16 room is actually in three heights. The one height is 92" where the image would be projected and then there is the area where the duct work is boxed in and that is the 84" height, and then the back ceiling is 95".
I guess at some point in one of those ceilings I could mount the projector, I just thought that the easiest way, at least for me, was to shelf mount it behind the sofa at some point.
I'm still researching the Epson that was recommended and so far so good. I'm sure there are others at this price point that I should probably consider as well.
