You might just have to stop into your local Home Depot/Menards/Lowes/etc... to see what they have. I've found they don't always have everything they carry online. Also, If you can't find poplar, I...

Did a mini horrorfest on Saturday. We watched 10 Cloverfield Lane, The Boy, and The Other Side of the Door. I was pretty let down with all 3. Coverfield was okay, but I was hoping for a better, less...

I didn't think the movie was THAT bad. I won't be watching it again any time soon, but it definitely wasn't torture to sit through.
I thought the LFE was incredible. My room was rumbling pretty much...

Understandable, screenshots can never seem to capture what we are actually seeing. I'd love to be able to compare a digital to a CRT in person but I don't know anyone with a CRT and it's way too much...

After reading this, I'd be really interested to actually see a CRT in action. Just going by the pictures in this thread, my takeaway is that digital is sharper and brighter while the CRT produces a...

I use the FH6-LCR as my front 3 (and back surrounds) in my theater. About 90% is movies/TV but I do occasionally sit down and listen to some music. I think they do an outstanding job for both. Of...

I don't. I actually started from about 12" back but moved my chairs up one day because I was working behind them and wanted a little more room. I left them at the closer position just to see how the...

I would 100% go with an A/T screen so you can go bigger. 104" 2.35:1 screen at 12 feet is WAY too small.

I have to agree. Steve, I have pretty much the same size going as you but on a 2.35:1 screen. I sit about 10 feet from the screen and at 16:9 I have a 110" image. That's pretty much the perfect size...

I can't see any difference in the series I vs II. I'd go with the H100ii.

I don't think you're crazy. I went with a 2.35 screen and set my room up accordingly. I have plenty of room height wise that I could have done 16:9 at the same width but that would have been too big...

Sitting that close to the screen, I would go with the UF material over the XD. I have the XD and love it, but I sit about 10 ft. from the screen and on very bright scenes the weave of the screen is...

OP,
That screen you linked may be too small for you, especially with 2 rows of seating in a 20' deep room. How far back do you think your front row will be?

It had it's moments; most notably the mind reading scenes with Kylo Ren. I just thought overall it was weak for a movie packed with action. Just my opinion, I know a lot of people have said they were...

I was hoping for more in the LFE area with the blu-ray as I was kind of let down with it in the theater; but it stays true to the source. Other than that I'd agree this is a solid buy.

My first row is right about 10' right now too. On scenes that are mostly bright white, yes, you can see the weave at 10'. It really doesn't bother me at all and it's very rare I even notice it. Check...
