Sanity Check time:
- The room is 17'6" by 17'5" with a 6ft doorway into the dining room. I can't put doors there, but I am permitted "barn doors" to close it off.
- The room has a wood burning stove with a brick surround in one corner that also can't go, so I have yet another limitation. So basically, I'm forced to use a 17'6" by 10' section of the room.
- Right now the plan is to build a cabinet for the A/V which will house our current 63" plasma and mount a drop-down projection screen into it for movie-time.
- Seating will be approximately 9.5' to 11' from the screen, again, limited by another door. We're empty-nesters, so a single couch is good enough.
- The projector MUST be placed at the back of the room where I'll be able to "ceiling mount" it inside another bookcase, so projector lens to screen distance will be around 15.5ft.
- Is a 106" screen too big when you're sitting 10' away? I calculated the viewing angle at around 39-42 degrees.
- Is the Starling Tab-Tension 2 CineGrey 5D™ Series my best bet for ambient light rejection? I'll be able to close the curtains, draw some shades, and close the barn doors, plus we will really only use the projector at night anyway.
- With 1.5 gain on the screen, would the Optoma UHD65 be good enough for this
