This is my first post but I've been lurking on AVS for years. I'm gathering my supplies to build a SF V.2 screen for my apartment. Here's my situation:
PJ: Panny AE4000 (incredible projector)
Screen Size: 96" Diagonal (16:9)
Substrate: Thrifty White Hardboard or Sintra at the right price
Throw: 9' 5"
Viewing Distance: 9' 5"
Ceiling Height: 8'
Ceilings and Walls are all bright white and cannot be altered (I know, clearly worst case scenario).
From this distance, the PJC calculator shows that I'm pushing 56 fLs
. In real world settings post-calibration it is likely a bit less than this, but I'm not entirely sure how to calculate fLs.
As far as ambient light and viewing habits, I have a moderately controlled room that has one sliding glass balcony door to the right covered with curtains. Light seeps through during the day, but it can be just about pitch black at night. I am big sports guy so I will be watching about 40-50% with some dim light, 50-60% in totally controlled environment at night.
I've only had the projector a week now. Up to this point, I've been projecting against a white textured wall, and even that has been a huge upgrade from my puny 50" LCD, but I know I haven't reached this projector's true potential. Unfortunately, I don't have a lot of leeway as far as modifications that can be made to the walls.
I was planning on SF V.2 3.0
, but I wanted to talk to the amazing experts on this forum first before I start mixing. Taking into consideration the above situation, how much colorant do you guys suggest I use?
