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.

Packaging


Clips/etc


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.

Gonna find out just how much I love them soon. I ordered a LR 2015 212HT. I am going to keep my 228 center for now due to size constraints
and move my LR 228s to rear speakers. I'll get a custom center from Jeff later if I feel it is necessary. I know one or two other JTR owners have done the
same thing, with good results.


Jeff should print some JTR Speakers T Shirts for his fan club!
I know a lot of people say the 228's wouldn't have enough coverage to use as surrounds but I've experienced them as surrounds and it was awesome! How big is your room, are the surrounds going to be real close to the seats?

The rear 228s will be 7 or 8 feet away from MLP. Can't wait to hear a five speaker JTR setup.

Woah, woah, woah!!

I'm very interested in this since I'm about to pull the trigger on a Falcon screen. Can you see the weave at ALL from the seats? How far away can you see it? MOAR PICS!!! How is the brighness? as bright as the XD material? Wow, you went with a huge screen!

Where did you get the screen material looks like Amazon only has one size.
