Maybe I can get an impromptu showing this weekend and post some pics next week.

Having done this, I've been thinking about trying to acquire more of these speakers and create a 5.1 outdoor system. It would be stunning. I live in the middle of 250 acres surrounded by another 500/700 acres of woods....surrounded there by lake on 3 sides... so I don't have much to worry about with neighbors and can let-r-rip.
Regarding lifting the bag, I cheated with Brutus. Is your screen an inflatable? We used a 'fast fold' by Da-lite. The box (seen in the pictures on the other forum) is probably too much for a single person to easily carry but it has wheels on one edge of the bottom.
Once I slid it out of my car I was able to just take the parts out and get with assembling it.
I suggest you do it as soon as you can... well...maybe cancel that comment. Cancel the comment because once you do this (and have nice weather) you will absolutely KICK yourself in the hiney for not having done it sooner and you will daydream all day while at work (don't ask me how I know
) about how you can improve your next event.
