Thanks. What brand? It looks like the full wall, that is what I am hoping to do, looks easy to remove.

Yes they are. I have built 3 of them, use a French cleat to hang it. This last one is a little more work tho at 200" diagonal.

Do you have a build thread? Are they easy to do? How expensive?

Just listened to speaker "A"

Everyone was kicked out and the crew are switching to speaker "B"


For reference before I get too fuzzy.

Channel left is level matched to 75db. Using avr test level. Dito for channel right.

Sub 1 is level matched to 77dB ditto for sub 2. Combined 80dB.

The sweeps are captured at -15 all content played back at -10

No build threads. Instructions are on the Seymour website
http://www.seymourav.com/articles/DIYFixedFrame.pdf

Here are some tips tho:
-I am a minimalist so I didn't do any of the miter cuts.
-Don't use those metal corner brackets unless you get some super strong ones. They will bend the first time you try to pick up your screen (ask me how I know smile.gif). I just put pieces of 1x3's across the corners and they hold perfectly. I have taken down my 200" screen dozens of times alone and really put some stress on it and it has held up wonderfully, a tribute to the strength of the 1x3's, not my carpentry skills.
-If you have the skill and patience use the grommets/rubber bands. I don't have either so used staples on all three.
-I had my first one angle cut. The next 2 were too big to do it but I have never seen any moire in over 4000 hours of viewing. But I have had JVC projectors which are not supposed to be sensitive to it. YMMV.
-Definitely use the triple velvet around the frame, it is awesome. I also use it on my walls and ceiling around my screen. Makes it a black hole when the lites are off. My room has no lite coming in.

They are so cheap to build is one of the reasons I did 3. At less than $150 (at that time) it was easy to go up in size. My 200" cost about $250. I built a new room so went with the max size I could.

Hope this helps.

I helped a friend build his screen, and mx48 is dead on about the corner brackets sucking. Also, follow the stretching plan exactly, we tried it twice thinking we were smarter, and both times got bad wrinkles. We then tried it the "right" way, and it worked perfectly the first try.

Thanks.

If you all take the screen down again can someone snap a picture of the back/bracing? In the link I see the frame they made. Is the black area under Andrews screen AT material also? Looks like it is all one piece.

Thanks

a bunch of people have biggest difference i noticed in my limited time with them is that the V8 is ~3db down on the high end. this can be changed with a resistor swap on the crossover if one desires. I happen to like it IMO the others are really bright
