I am trying to setup a backyard movie theater. I have 2 x 12 inch monitors ( http://www.harbingerproaudio.com/products/aps-series.cfm ) that will sit left and right of the 140 inch screen (http://www.campchef.com/portable-screens/outdoor-big-screen-144.html )
My Projector will need about 17 feet to throw the video up on the screen. I am using a DVD/BluRay (Red/White RCA output) as my audio source. The projector and DVD/BluRay player will be on a stand/table together.
I have heard and read that using Red/White RCA (even shielded) cables may be an issue over 30+ feet?
What cables should I use? Both speakers are powered, but if I use a RCA-to-XLR cable, even though one end is XLR it is still using the quality robbing RCA signal. I need to go 30+ feet.
After the screen, projector, speakers and misc. cables I am out of budget - but do I need to look at some sort of amp/mixer to do this right? Or, will the 30 feet (for audio only) be fine? And if so RCA-to-RCA or RCA-to-XLR cables?
Any help would be most appreciated. My middle Son's birthday is this Saturday, and was hoping to roll this out in time for our first movie in the Backyard for his Birthday party.
Thanks for any help and advice.
