I am interested in the W6000. Can someone tell me what the optimal throw distance is expected to be? I need to have a good idea of how I need to mount the projector? (how far from the screen and is there a particular height that it needs to be at?)
See attached floor plan with location of screen and projector.
And I have a beam which has been framed around with studs. The closest stud to the screen is 6'3" in height from the ground and 12' 4" feet away from the screen. With drywall, the drywall will be about 12' 3" away from the screen.
I have placed a circle where the optimal spot for mounting will be (about 12 feet away from the screen). Is 12 feet a good distance?
If I have to go further back from the screen, then I will be in area that is framed out by the studs around the beam. Around 14 feet away (where I placed the X), there is room to mount the projector, but it will be much lower (you have some idea based on the stud being 6' 3" in height) My contractor says its probably too low to mount the projector where the square is.
So is the Benq W6000 still an option for me with a 106 inch screen?
