11 feet is my viewing distance btw, and from the lens to the screen is probably more like 10 feet (throw distance) I measured the specs of the Sony. Want to confirm this still works for my room size before I go ahead and buy this.
A 10ft throw will nett you just a bit above 100" with the Sony. If you could get in an extra half-foot, you could hit 105". It is somewhat tight...

I think you're confusing the behind-the-seating wall-width with the ceiling height - the ceiling's listed at 8ft high.
That height will work perfectly for either projector being considered here (both the W1070 - due to it's conveniently small offset; and the Sony - due to it's large lens shift).
Speakers often go under the screen at it's edges, so the OP should be fine unless he plans on getting really big front-left and front-rights; in a small room I'm not sure such large speakers are required. Also, I'm not sure if they'd be worth sacrificing significant screen real-estate for either...
The throw is a bit more of a concern, though. The W1070 can hit 120" from 10ft; the Sony tops out at about 100".
The Sony is a really solid candidate for such a well-treated room; but the throw might not work for the desired size if we're limited to just 10ft.
@@Cartoys; is there any specific reason the Sony couldn't be mounted above the sofa? Say, using a low-profile mount that keeps it relatively flush with the ceiling? (I do this with my projector...)
Because from the 11ft seating position, you can nail a bit above 110"...
