Alan's instructions for this thread was for posting pics only and whilst I know it good to praise the work done, I started THIS thread for that exact purpose so this one does not become locked again.

Joining in the fun, as I hold this forum responsible for CIH syndrome... (we're hoping to get it classified as a real disease soon )

The specs as related to CIH:
  • Room: 16'x22'x10'
  • Screen: Carada BW 136" 2.35:1 Masquerade screen and motorized masking system
  • Projector: JVC RS50, Panamorph U480 anamorphic lens w/motorized sled





Gory details in my after-the-fact build thread here:

I've been lurking here for quite a while. Now I've got some picture to share too.







As you can see, the attic room has some constraints. To fill a screen this size, I couldn't mount the projector on the ceiling. The Isco II anamorphic lens is also essential for this short distance. There's no room for more than a 5.1 speaker configuration. I use a Benq W6000 projector with an oppo BDP 93 blu-ray player and a YAMAHA audio reciever. The speakers brand is Mordant Short.

Nothing fancy. Picture of front wall. Projector and lens are shelf mounted on temporary shelf. Old shelf was too small for lens to fit. All equipment is located in a mechanical room below theater room. Will probably add masking system in the fall.
Projector: JVC RS45
Lens: Fixed in place Prismasonic HD6000F
Screen: Prismasonic 116" curved AT (curved because of the 1.65 throw ratio)
Video Processor: Lumagen Mini 3D
Front three speakers: JTR T8
Surround speakers: JBL Pro 8340
Subs: DIY sealed 18" Malstrom-X, two DIY sealed 12" TC Sounds and a DIY sealed 12" Shiva-X (all powered by pro amps)
AVR: Denon 4311

Hey guys,

After doing tons of reading on this forum and speaking with several people (thanks imserious!) WP_001126.jpg 769k .jpg file WP_001127.jpg 807k .jpg file WP_001129.jpg 801k .jpg file WP_001134.jpg 597k .jpg file WP_001138.jpg 780k .jpg file WP_001141.jpg 1065k .jpg file , I finally managed to pull off my setup in an apartment – I have a living room which is about 15 feet long by 13 feet wide. I already have a Panasonic VT-50 65” plasma mounted on the wall. To it, I added an electric drop down CIH Projection screen by Elite. I’m using a Cine Tension2 115” Diagonal screen. My sound system comprises of 2 RF-82’s II as my FL, and FR, RF-62 II as my center and RF-42’s as my surround. All this is driven by my Denon AVR-3313ci . The sub I’m using is an old Denon sub that came with my 5.1 system from years ago. I have to upgrade but I am undecided on which sub to go with - SVS, Epik, HSU or Outcast.

Having 2 HDMI outputs helps as I can seamlessly change from watching stuff on my TV to the projector without having to switch cables manually. The projector I am using is an EPSON 3010 – I have it sitting on a bracket above me. In order to get the 2.35 Aspect ratio to work, I had to place the projector upside down; I was told that I need keystone correction and I never understood the concept so I managed to find a work around. I do have the projector zoomed in to fit the screen and I intend to use the screen only for 2.35:1 movies. The movies look fantastic but I do have some overscan – there is a thin rectangular bar that appears below the screen which is more visible during the night but I hardly notice it. Also, the picture doesn’t fit my screen completely, there is a hair’s breadth of the screen not covered fully by the projector but again, it is unnoticeable. If you guys have any recommendations, I’d love to hear them.

I’ve attached a few photos. If anyone has any specific questions, feel free to PM me and I’ll be happy to share more details.

Thanks again for all the suggestions!

PS. as you can see, using the PS3 as the blu-ray player means that I have to put up with the 16:9 image when I'm trying to browse or select a movie from amazon prime or netflix
post #97 of 179
Vilas, you have a great looking setup (I too enjoy my Klipsch setup). You may already know this but on since your PS3 is in 16:9 aspect ratio, unless you zoom out, it will extend beyond your screen. Not familiar with your projector but one of the main reasons I bought my Panasonic AE3000u was because it has a zoom memory feature where I can set 3 presets for zoom and focus. This allows me to click two buttons to switch between 16:9 and 2.35:1 ratio as the content on the screen changes depending on the source material.

So you can watch 16:9 content but it is pillar-boxed?
post #99 of 179
Yes, when I watch 16:9 content, there are grey bars on the sides. When I watch 2.35:1 content, it fills the entire screen and the top and bottom grey bars are extended above and below the screen so that you do not see them.

The opposite happens on a 16:9 screen. When viewing 16:9 content, it fills the screen. When viewing 2.35:1 content, you will have grey bars on top and bottom.

The only way that I know to be able to have both is through masking (hiding) the grey bars. Some have electronic masking (like you see in the theater). During the previews, they are in 16:9. When the movie starts, you see the side curtains roll back to reveal the entire 2.35:1 movie screen.

Hope that helps.

Yes most of us with a scope screen have the 16:9 image centered with black bars on the sides. The height remains the same for all content whether it's 4:3, 16:9 or 2.35:1, which is why it's called constant image height or CIH setup.

Beautiful space. You've done a very good job of keeping the good looks of the room yet adding in a projection system. Is this an Eichler? How's the sound quality in the room?

Hard to take pictures of the screen, but here are some new ones:

Over exposed the screen picture so that you can see the subs.



Screen with back light on.




Here are the speakers that are behind the screen:


To give you an idea on the scale, the sub in the middle is 48" wide and the other two subs are 40" wide. Screen is curved with a viewing area of 44.5" x 107", 2.40 aspect ratio and EN4K. I also installed a back light kit, but it does not show the speakers off as much as I had hoped. You can see them viewing the screen from an angle, but not straight on. The upper projector is my sons gaming projector, Planar DLP.

Since this thread was started in 2005, then locked in 2009, and re-opened up in 2011 maybe a change to the "don't post comments" is ok now?
7+years is a long time.

after all, its nice to make and read comments on peoples nice HT's scope set-up, generates more traffic / hits for AVS ad revenue .....
Having a 2nd thread for discussion of posts in this thread frankly is not efficient and a PIA....my 0.02....
post #118 of 179
I think comments are fine, too. What we don't want to do is go off on 3 page tangents unrelated to the Orig T. Things aren't getting locked like they used to. I haven't seen one locked since the site changes. Which frankly, I'm pleased to see.

That said, nice theater Mike.
