Yeah, I've got a 9 foot wide scope screen on a 10 foot wall. :) I could have gone several inches wider, but considering I'm only sitting 9.5 to 10 feet back, it's plenty really. The opposite wall...

Myself and others gave you a lot of feedback in one of your threads. I think you are way over-analyzing the differences at this point. It's really not a big deal either way 2:35-2:4.

Regarding the Pro Monitor 1000 vs the Studio Monitor 55 - they are almost the same list price yet the SM 55 has a larger 6.5" speaker. Is there is some sound quality benefit to the PM 1000? I would...
