Not too much theater specific progress lately, between tiling and vacation and general craziness.
On the plus side, my projector (sony vpl-vw95es) showed up on my birthday a few weeks ago. I got a great price and excellent service from Mike at AVS.
Decided to go DIY screen for a bit just to see exactly what size I prefer. This frame is pretty much as big as I can go if I want a scope. Its 120" x 50" (2.40:1). Leaves me 4" on the sides for the border and I have just enough room above so that the "black" bars won't hit the front of my soffit when zoomed in for scope aspect.
The plan is to fur it off of the wall by 2" so I have room for some 2" linacoustic behind it.
Is it ok to use 2 layers of 1" linacoustic instead of a single sheet of 2"? I don't need enough of the 2" to justify buying a whole roll.
Also, is it necessary to paint the screen frame black if I am NOT
using an AT screen. Screen will be BOC (likely painted to add some gain / improve color)
