I believe te firehawk is a incredibly versitile screen. Putting it on a curved frame will also help with it's viewing cone which is fine with me already. THere are width limits on it, but I don't remember what they are. If you will *always* watch in a 100% light controlled room (AKA bat cave), and you have the light to spare, the grayhawk would be my choice. But, if you ever expect to have any ambient light, like in having some friends over for a sports event party, etc and will have some lights on, the FH is superior. For me, the overall advantages and enviroment flexibility of the FH material outweight what I consider as minor disadvantages. Either way, for the C3X, I'd choose a FH or GHRS. FWIW, Sim2 chose to use a FH at CEDIA. Search the "official stewart screen" thread for a question to M. Robinson by me and his answer regarding the subject. Essentially I was asking a very similar question at the time.
