AT Spandex Attic Screen
I'm in the beginning stages of designing the screen I'm going to build, and any advice, critique, or affirmation is welcome!
I am building this in my attic/bedroom of a rental house, and this is going under a slanted ceiling, so I'm trying to get creative with how I set this up. I'm not able to mount it to a wall, and I'd rather not hang it from the ceiling since I don't own the house.
I will add more specific measurements later for my room, but the projector (an old Panasonic AE3000U, with a young lamp) is about 11' from where the screen will be, and seating about 9'. I'm thinking a screen between 85"-95". I'm planning on using the typical white over black milliskin spandex.
I've attached a picture of my most recent idea. This frame is 80" x 45", on top of a piece of IKEA BestA furniture. May look for something a little deeper and sturdier for the base, but this would be cheap. The shelf in the middle would be for the center channel speaker, and this whole thing would be secured to the base(tv stand). Would most likely put the left and right speakers on either side of the screen, but may try behind the screen, I'm just worried about them being too close to the middle.
The last thing I've been trying to figure out is how I want to do a border around the screen, whether it's outside or inside the current screen dimensions. I do think a border would be good, since my walls are all white.
