How many hours do you have your bulb now and do you have the space in the bonus room to zoom out that large to test it? That'll give you a good idea of how it will look. If it's normal flat paint, it will be even brighter on the smx screen, especially if you'll have a completely light controlled room.
The bulb will be it's brightest for the first 100 hours or so, and after 500 or so it gets to almost half the brightness that it was when it was new.
An alternative I thought of before getting the Sim was changing bulbs more often in the jvc, say every 500 hours or so. I think for me that equals a new bulb every 4 months or so (I use it every day).
When I upgraded my screen to an smx, I wanted to go as big as I could. I was originally going to get a 137" wide screen and Jason at AVS said I was pushing the limits of the rs10 too much at that size. So what did I do? I went even bigger to 150"
Anyway, I would do the test and see how it looks to you.
