Stewart 4-way and general questions...  

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am thinking about retrofitting an existing custom cabinet to replace the Pioneer RPTV that I have with a 100" diagnonal greyhawk. Because I watch a lot of 4:3 still (unfortunately), I am looking at the Stewart 4-way...A few questions related to that...

1) If you go with a fixed screen, do you worry about keeping it clean? Do I need to have something in front of it (e.g. curtains)?

2) If it is being built *into* a cabinet, how far (if at all) would you recess it? In other words, would you make the screen surface flush with the cabinet or would you recess it a few inches? What are the considerations (projection angle?)?

3) How important do people really think the masking is? This would most likely be used with a DLP like the Sharp 9000 (in any case, not a CRT)...

4) The Stewart site doesn't have the PDF files for the 4-way for some reason??? I am trying to get them from my installer but does anyone have them handy? I need to figure out whether it would fit and get them to the cabinet guy...

Thanks!

If you drop me an email and give me the size you were looking for, I can print out all of the dimensions for you to look over. That way you'll know if it will work. Generally, Stewart screens can be washed if needed. Its best to avoid touching it as much as possible, though. I can also give you pricing if you'd like.

Thanks!

Jason,

Thanks. I actually got a hold of my buddy who is a dealer and has ScreenAssistant and he was able to get me the dimensions I was missing. Unfortunately, it is 5" too wide for my cabinet so now I need to decide how much it would cost to rework the cabinet..:)

As for buying it through AVS, I will probably not be able to. Since this guy will be doing the install, etc., I want to get it through him. In addition, since he is a good friend, I already get a good deal..:)

I would like to order stuff through you guys that he isn't a dealer for though. Is AVS an integra/onkyo dealer? I believe from another thread with Alan that you are no longer a Sharp 9000 online dealer, correct? At the minimum, I will probably get the cables from you guys once I know the lengths needed...I'd love to support you for this great resource...

Hi Jason:

This is probably too late but here is the link to the spec sheet of the 4-way. On the right of the page is a pdf link.

Cindy,

That page is deceptive -- which is why I asked the question in the first place. The "PDF Download" link basically contains a PDF version of the same info that is on the HTML page. The "Product Diagrams" page takes you to a listing of documents that include the profile and mounting images for various screens but for some reason that I cannot comprehend, Stewart only has this for a limited subset of their screens (not including the 4 way)...

Thanks though...

Oh, now I understand your question.

The diagrams page is a work in progress. We have hundreds of diagrams with different frames, stands, and sizes. I apologize if the screen you were looking for was not on that list. We will be adding on to the diagrams list in the future.

Thanks for you patience.

*grin* Not a problem. I found the information another way...Just wish that my cabinet was 6" wider and the 4-way screen was a 1/4 the cost...:)

Hi Jon:

FYI: Stewart specializes in custom jobs. You may want to get a quote on what you need just to compare.
