I expect that after framing my soffit will be 7' 8" or 7' 7" floor to ceiling. This puts the base of my projector at about 7'...which is a bit lower than I'd prefer.

Do you recall the height of the beam in this room? The final height of the base of the projector? I'm just trying to get a sense of how tight the projector is in the bar area of this room.
I was wondering if this ever got answered. I one of my designs for a dedicated theater I have two beams to deal with and was wondering how low the projector was placed. My room would be 24'-6"x16'x 8'-8" finished walls. The height under the beams would be 7'-7" I believe you used a projector with lens shift to get it set right on the screen?

you need a clear line of sight from the lens to the top of the screen in any installation. So if that means you have to mount your projector a little lower then that is what your do. Keep in mind that some projectors do not have vertical lens shift and you would not be able to hit the top of the screen from a lowered position. Tilting a projector is not advised. Yes we used lens shift.

Jeff - Sorry if this is buried in the threads somewhere but do you recall the following:

1) how deep are the columns
2) how much space between the front of the columns and the bar top?
3) How big is the screen?

Thanks in advance.

this is what I remember, the columns on the back wall were considerably less deep than the sides, we recessed the back half of the speakers in the wall for more room at the bar. The result was maybe a 6 inch deep column. I think the screen was 130 wide. Maybe Giantsfan will put a tape on the items for definitive answers, PM him.
