Help With Screen Size and Projector

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Any help or suggestions would be awesome... Here is what I have. My dedicated Small HT room is 12W X 16L It is prewired for 7.1

1. My projector can be placed no more than 11ft away from screen suggestions or what I could do has to be 1080p HD not to crazy about 3D at this point...

2. Screen 1:78 2:35.? It will be mostly be viewed as epic movies with a bit of tv viewing my question is this. If i can only go so big either way couldn't I just use masking technique to make a 1:78 a 2:35 anyway or am I missing something big here??? And I actually have ready several forums on this subject. Its all kind of confusing to me.

3. How big should I go? I want at least 100 is that going to be possible?

4. I am planing having seating at 9ft and 14-15ft?

5. I really would like to place speaker behind the screen??? Advice??

Please Help

My last room was slightly larger than yours, and with two rows and a 92" screen (front row at 8 feet) it was already a tight fit. An AT screen would have eaten another 2 feet and I don't know if I could have made it work well.

Note that if you put the back row right against the back wall it can have major bass issues (been there, done that) and if you're planning on home theater recliners you need at least 6 feet between the rows. A possible way to gain some space would be to have commercial-style seats or bar seating as the second row.
