Well that's great! At last...a Window that doesn't create any more issue than just being there presents.
I'll look into this. Thanks for the advice.
This is an excellent dark Grey. Neutral in Color....highly suppressive, and lloks immensely better than a Matte Black.
[quote]I've been sitting about 14' from the wall, but plan to get some recliners once I mount the projector from the drop ceiling. I've just been waiting to finalize the plans.
For the 140" 2.39:1 sized screen, you have a extremely wide Throw distance (14'-6" to 30'-7") so the very best Throw to go with is at the closest end of the available Throw. That would be 15'-6" to 16"-6"
Have you worked out a good method of mounting the 5050 on/through a Drop Ceiling? Need any help there?
Yes, I do want to do it right the first time around. I've read you "preach" it many times. I have noticed certain movies in the 2.39:1 aspect while football is in 16:9. I haven't done enough research to understand the different mechanism to resolve these. Ideally, I'd paint the whole wall, but the window messes that up.
Yeah...I can get a little "preachy".....or adamant as I would prefer to say. But Hey...it's only because I know other members want and deserve the best results....they just don't always know what it take to get there,,,especially for less cash outlay. So I gotta be me.....I gotta be me......
I'll say this though...I have helped many a Member "Faux Out" a Window and create a smooth Wall. In your case you could easily enough create a Screen Wall large enough to be Non-Format Specific...just as if it was a painted Wall with no Window. Been there...done that....and it's a really cool application.
My window is 59" off the ground. I believe I understand your reasoning at the 2:39:1 aspect ratio to have a shorter screen height which leaves me with more room for the center speaker. If I understand that correctly, I like this idea.
You've got it......... and that is still probably the best idea.
One other thing I should mention is that I have some duct work I'll need to work around on the upper left corner of the screen. If I remember correctly, it sticks out about 4" from the wall. I'll get some exact measurements along with how it fits with your proposed 140" frame.
Yeah...OK.....I hope it isn't a Buzz Kill. Breaking that sort of news is usually in my corner....and it's never fun. I will keep fingers crossed it's just not gonna present any issue (smaller sized screen)
Could you please help with the throw distance? If I get the projector mounted this weekend, the better half will get off my back.
It's all up above. Remember...there are relatively easy methods to mont a PJ on a Drop Ceiling and hide all wiring, so that all that comes down through a Tile is a 1.5" PVC Pipe into the Mount.....that is if your not using a Mount of Flea-Bay. The Chief RPA 357 or RPMA 357 mounts are Da Bomb when combined with a Peerless ACC-570 Ceiling Plate correctly positioned and mounted up inside the Drop Plenum.
If you have any chance of doing what I suggest, then do so. Yes, this weekend would be great...but next week with a absolute drop dead gorgeous Ceiling Mount will make the Wife forget about the extra wait, and be commending you on you cleverness. I won't tell...you can take all the credit.
Let me know what's up. If you need any help getting things in by Friday....who ya gonna call?
