So you're saying a tiny bit of light leak will show through the projector screen? without doubt?

a bit of ambient room light during the day is fine, the bifolds have built in blinds and won't shut out light completly, just don't want light lines through the back of the screen

It all depends upon the type and quality of the projector screen. Some projector screens are engineered to be more opaque than others where that wasn't a big consideration. Very few installations are in front of a window.

Best of luck. I'm sure there will be easy solutions to any problems that arise!

Light will come through. You can add sidetracks to most pull downs though, or make your own. These will reduce or eliminate that light on the side.

This is one example, to show what I'm talking about.

Looking great!

Where will you be placing subwoofers and which did you choose?

Thanks! Just the one subwoofer, I kept my existing BK Electric 600DF+ (gloss piano black)

In the most recent two photos, the first one looking at the front of the room - on the right there's a couple of wall plates (power+sub plate), it will go there.

I can't find any specs nor reference to that model subwoofer using Google, perhaps I'm just not good at searching.

The reason I wanted to look is because you've got the very best in-wall speakers made, they would really shine if paired with a single (or better, a pair) of new subs that are commensurate with the quality of the speakers. A pair of 500w ported subs (or higher power) would give you a better chance at even distribution of low frequencies present in movies today. With a single sub of less power, you may be unable to get good bass response from all seats and/or not be able to reach reference levels or the true lowest frequencies.

Is the B&K 600DF+ still available? What amp does it have and is a sealed downfiring sub or ported front-firing sub?

I'm not trying to spend your money, just want to help assure that you get the very best results for the investment you've made to this point.

It's this, I had it in my head it was '600', but it's the plus I know that.

I haven't wired in a second sub, which is a bit of an oversight

That's a good one! Yes, a second one may be needed but you won't know for sure until the room is setup and you have several seats from which to check response.

Hopefully I'll manage, Louise wouldn't be overly keen on another subwoofer


Seating is like this, ignore furniture models used - but I will be on that sofa 100% of the time
