I worked with Jon at Seymour AV on a custom Seymour Center Stage XD materiel with grommets and bands stretched on a DYI frame. It is about 2.1 ratio 126" wide and 65" tall giving me a 136" diagonal 2.35:1 of 126"X53" and a 132" diagonal 16x9 of 115"x65". I started my making the minimalist wall used by so many but I want to give credit to BigMouthinDC.
Then I made the frame out of 1x3 finger joined pine
I edged it with toe molding so the screen would have a nice crisp edge
Then I wrapped it in velvet from SYFabrics
Then I installed the XD screen on the frame
at first I laid out the screen punt my frame down and marked the screw locations 1 1/4" above each grommet.
you see here that the screw is perpendicular to the grommet as indicated by the marker.
when we got it on the wall there was a lot of sag so I chatted with Jon via email and Chris via PM and their solution was to add another 1/4" and to also have the screws get further off center as you got closer to the corners. Hope you understand what I mean. You can see the old screw holes
Wrapping the corner was interesting
and done it is tight as a drum I think that the velvet also helped as it was a smother surface so less resistant than the painted wood for the fabric to stretch over
