Have you determined your screen size yet, and if so, how far off the floor are you planning on mounting it?
can you pint me to some examples of your riser comment? I'm not following that at all.
My screen is going to be a phased approach. I'm planning on painting the back wall first with the screen goo, then later putting in a more formal stage.
I have no idea where the screen will be placed. So just throwing numbers out there, if it's a 10' screen and it's centered, I would have a foot at the top and bottom.
I have really given this zero thought though - my bigger concern at the moment is figuring out to build the soundproof ventilated and wired box and once I understand that I'll move on to the other things.
Also, I say this again and again but one more time, this isn't going to start any time this year. This is all just a learning exercise at the moment but I'm very committed to going through with it.
