Merry Christmas my friends!
I just wanted to let any of you guys thinking about getting an acoustic transparent screen to put your JayTerZ behind (you should be)...strongly consider the Elite AcousticPro1080P2 screens. It's almost $1200 cheaper than the next 'normal' goto recommendations on avs and performs very well. After comparing it to a sample of seymour, I can't find any justification to spend $1000-1500 more...that money can be better used in other ht items.
After deciding it was relatively inexpensive to test out, I got a 176" 2.35 fixed sableframe a few days ago via Amazon...and I have to honestly say it looks fantastic. Even came with a nice black backing to help reduce possible reflections from back wall. Putting it together is pretty easy and just takes a couple of hours if you take your time following the directions exactly. It stretched out perfectly without any waves/wrinkles.
Rods to help stretch fabric evenly by sitting in a channel running entire length of framework.
Fabric detail, back side...even cut at an angle to reduce any chance of moire
Clips installed...following install pattern important, similar to torqueing bolts
Black acoustic backing fabric with additional vertical strut like bracing for support and final streching of fabric. Mine has two braces due to the size of the screen. The clips used are each velcro backed, so the black backing cleverly and simply catches on all the clips holding the AT fabric.
Cost less than $500 shipped...saving over a $1200...priceless.
