The room is 15x15 basement space which opens to the left to a large space 15x26 and to the back to a 10x10 space with stairs. The ambient light is minimum at night which is when i plan to use it mostly for cable, movies and rare gaming. the kids are growing to gaming may be improtatnt in next 5 years. there will be ambient light during daytime
here is the issue. i plan to install the projector in a niche (ventilated) in the drop down tray ceiling. the ceiling height is 104". the lowest height of the niche is 16" from the ceiling, so the projector is to be mounted <90" from the floor (bottom within 14" from the ceiling). the throw distance will be between 13 to 13.5 feet as the niche will end at 15' from the screen. i was considering a 110'" screen as there will be a similar drop down niche on the other side. this will allow >2 ft on either side of the ceiling
i was looking at the elite projector calculator (for hw30es) which basically tells me that i have to get closer to 120" for screen size to mount at 13' throw distance so i get within 90' projector height from ceiling. Epson/JVC are more forgiving. the 120" screen will only leave 2' from tthe bottom and 23" from the top (7" from the dropdown tray ceiling). this will be tight
here are my questions:
will it be possible to still mount the sony in such a situation?
what mount do i use. do i need a low profile?
is the vertical shift for 50es better than 30es?
should i switch to epson/jvc?
also need recommendations for screen in my setting? Budget around 1000$
have considered elite screens cine grey and dragonfly grey
need recs for surround sound system with a minimalist look? Budget around 3000$
like the look of wall mount and satellite speakers. would lik eto stay away from tower..
psb imagine on wall (60 and 25 for surround)
monitor audio shadow
paradigm millenia hybrid 20
golden ear supersats (50 and 3 for surrounds)
revel M10, c10 and s12's
will it be bad (for sound quality) to have 2 wall mounted speakers on either sider of the screen and the center in the bottom. i can mount the L/R to match the bottom of the screen
thanks in anticipation
