Looking to build my first DIY Screen

Hello,


I'm looking to build an AT DIY screen for my dedicated home theater. I would like it to be 160'' (diagonal). I am still in the process of finishing my theater. I plan on building a false wall with engineered 2x4s to hang the screen on and will have the speakers behind it. My LCRs will be DIYSG 1099s. I am leaning towards 2 mini or full martys for my subs. I was set on a spandex w/b screen but I have the JVC NX7 as my project and I'm concerned with the gain. Would I be okay with the spandex screen of that size with my projector or should I look elsewhere for the screen material? This will by my first DIY screen build, so any suggestions and/or assistance is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

No Go or Joy with Spandex at 160" in any Format (15 fl at very best)



Even if you get a hold of a 1.2 gain AT material (...which you don't want anyway...) the best you'll clock in at is 25 fl which isn't gonna wow ya with it's HDR performance. Oh...it would look good in SDR or non HDR UHD. But where's fun in that? ( trade up to a NX9 w/15.3'Throw and 1.2 gain and you'd get 32 fl. Better...but no HDR Cigar )



Don't hate a fellow Hoosier for being the bearer of lousy news.

At the moment, the price of the NX9, even with a trade up from my basically new NX7, I would think the price difference wouldn't work for me.

Just curious, why wouldn't I want the 1.2 gain AT material?

What if go down to 155'' or 150"?

150 @ 1.2 gain is an improvement. 150" diagonal at a 15'-6" toss = 31 fl w/NX9 @ 150" / 14.9 toss and 1.2 gain...= 36 fl



I only wish I could have caught you before you moved on the "7".



You'd be quite surprised as to what is and isn't possible out there at present.

I'm intrigued by your last statement. Just PMd you for more details.

For the time being, what is the 1.2 gain material you are referring too?

I believe there are some newer AT materials from XY screens and others that have been compared in the regular Screens forum to have impressive gain without the typical visible artifacts of previous high-gain AT screens.
Those might be worth a read, and you can check out samples for yourself before committing to anything personally unseen.

EDIT: This looks like the thread I was thinking of..

Thanks! I will definitely take a look at it.

I think I'm leaning towards getting a 150" or 160" screen and seeing how I like it. I currently only have a older 4K Samsung TV that doesn't have HDR. So, I will probably be easily wowed with anything it throws. I've played with the NX7 on a large wall and it looked great! So I can't wait.

Do you mind providing a sketch/measurements for a 150" and 160" screen. I have a Kreg Jig already. I think I'm ready to go from that perspective.

Thanks in advance!

Absolutely!


Do you want to attempt a Zero Edge...Virtually Zero Edged (1.5" BV Border)- or a 2.5" Black Velvet Border design.

Awesome! I would like to do a zero edge screen.

Alrighty then......


Your purchase of the 147.5" x 86.4" sized "Angled Cut" material has set you up nicely as far as having enough material to effectively wrap completely around a 1x4 Frame of hand-picked Poplar and staple to the rear inside edge of the Frame. It will be close,very little margin for error....so you'll have to be exacting in laying the material out, but that same "close to spec'd size does allow you to use the Frame's parameters itself to go by.



A 160" diagonal 16:9 is 78" x 139", so allowing a full 4" all around, not including the very slight size gain from a strong tug, you just squeak in there!


Now lets consider instead a 155"diagonal @ 135" x 76". Now you'll have 12" of extra Length and 10" extra Height.....and that Sir just about garr-ran-teas a successfully wrapped Zero Edge design with each corner being properly folded.


Now keep in mind the Center Stage XD has virtually no stretch....and you will have to pull the material very evenly in every direction. But others have done so...so it's not an unknown factor. And that consideration is why I'm suggesting you scale your Diagonal size back to 155". Now instead, you can do your larger size by Stretching and stapling to the Sides, and then overlaying the Sides with 1/2"thick by 3.25" wide Black Velvet Wrapped Mdf Base. A 1/2" Trim edge certainly will qualify as being Zero Edged on a 160 diagonal screen.


Here's a 155" diagonal diagram.






If you have difficulty finding long enough 1x3s that are straight....below is a composite Frame that uses shorter pieces of 1x4 along with 1x3s that are joined at the top and bottom in a offset configuration........also...by doing a Sectional assembly, one can increase Screen Frame size proportionately.

Wow! Great information and I love the many options . Now you have my thoughts churning. A few questions/comments.

I wish I would've gotten a bigger size to allow for more material to work with. It's still doable but I would need to be more precise.

I really like this option as well. If I go this route I would need to adjust my screen wall some because I built it to work with the 160" dimensions. This isn't a big deal.

I really like this option as well. If this is what I'm thinking, this may be my most liked option. But, I'm trying to picture exactly how this is done and looks. Is this just framing, wrapping, and stapling the screen first. Then wrapping the MDF in velvet and nailing it to the sides of the framed screen?


Again thanks for this information. It's really got me thinking and excited.

I actually have alot of 3/4" mdf laying around I can rip to the desired width and I have some triple velvet from syfabric on the way that I ordered for the screen wall around the screen. I always order extra just in case. I'm heading to Menards today to check out their lumber.

I don't have much experience with Members shopping for Poplar at Menards. It is / would be a real advantage to be able to get at least 10' lengths of 1x4, however 8' lengths will do just fine if they are straight and true.


However....you want to use 1/2" x 3.5" Mdf "Base Board" for the edge trim....not 3/4"

I was able to find some good straight poplar boards at Menards. Found a few 1x12x12s that I'm going to cut and rip to the desired length and width. It was much cheaper than buying individual boards.

Thank you! I'm so glad you replied with this, because I was not thinking base board when you mentioned it previously. I'm going back today to pickup the base boards for the edge trim.

I have been seeing people using screen tight and spline. Curiously, what's your thoughts on this with my design?

Not applicable unless you scale back screen size so you can mount the Screen Tight on the inside surface of the 1x...or consider using a wider "Front Surface" Trim that can cover the Screen Tight assembly.

While there may well be a few members who have managed Zero Edged screens using Spandex or Mfg Material and who also used Screen Tight, they are so few I cannot point to any specifically compared to the many who have used such and resorted to having the Trim hide the hardware.


Frankly...not a great many on here use the Mfg Material compared to over on Screens, so you might consider posting up an inquiry over there. If they send you scurrying back this direction, we/you can revert back to stapling.

@MississippiMan or anyone else

I have the frame built and was wondering if there is a need to paint the front of it that touches the screen black?

It would be better for the underlying edge's surface to be a neutral a color as possible, especially since you will not have a Black backing going across the rest of the screen like you would with White over Black Spandex.

I built my screen over the last few days. I went with the 160" screen. It turned out great. I actually was able to staple it to the back edge and get a zero edge screen. Instead of doing a French cleat, I bought some heavy duty Z clips. They did the job. Next I need to build the side panels.

Thank you @MississippiMan !!

By the way........those HangMan "Z-Clips" are still considered to be French Cleats....just Mfg. ones.
