Dennis Erskine, a theater designer and audio expert of some reknown, has stated that given the choice, above is preferred to below.
I would LOVE to see a picture of that.
So after reading the whole forum again, here's what I'm going to attempt to do. Just want anyone who has an opinion good or bad or how to improve this to throw something at me.
Projector Lense to wall: 14.5ft.
Projector Mount: Ceiling, 12 - 18 inch adjustable.
Eye to Screen Distance: ~ 13-14 ft. in optimal seat.
Screen Size: 110" diagnol. 8ft. wide, 4'6" tall.
Screen Material: CRT Goo base and top coat, 1.4 gain rated (ya so they claim).
Screen Trim: 2 inch black velvety non reflective stuff.
Environment: Light controlled, up to nearly 95% pitch black (possibly higher)
Ceiling: 7 ft'
Room width: 17ft, tapers to 14ft. Centering off the 14ft. width.
Room Length: 27 ft. depending how much of it I want to use.
My center speaker is probably 8 ot 10 inches in height... should I still mount this above the projector? or do I need to spare those extra inches to keep the screen as high as possible. Floor mounting the center channel is an option. Black non reflective material is an option on the ceiling floors, speakers etc. too.
