That's cool....but you will have a bit of trouble on the right and left sides where the corners of the Walls jut into what would be Riser space. I see a good layout plan though, one that address traffic concerns. Something to base some ideas on.

That will be a big Riser! 5 Chairs wide. Screen is mounted High...so that helps keep the Riser Height at 10"

5" Edge Steps. Below is a safe solution that essentially divides the "Nitch"and give ready access on both sides. (...not to exact scale...)

Thank you MississippiMan, I really appreciate your input! You have the eye and know how, vs me stumbling along hoping to get lucky! I started a new thread for the riser, so as to avoid cross-contamination

https://www.avsforum.com/forum/15-gen...l#post56003596

Hope that worked.

OK gents saw the questions and comments on LL’s thread. Here are some pics, full light, then turned off all the lights, finally I unscrewed the two lights over the front row but left the other lights on. It appears i’ll need to get some day time pics tomm. Before the fire there were four can lights in the nook above where the front couch is. I cut it down to two, but didn’t want to leave the area without any overhead light at all.

I am absolutely in love with the image we’re getting, if I wasn’t I would definitely had Stephen take it back. But the only way this screen is leaving my house is if there’s another fire...

These are with my iPhone trying to autocorrect the image, again I will break out the Nikon soon, however we still have a lot of house to unpack and I have to pick my battles with the boss. Got these because we’re taking a break tonight.

Spoiler!

Those two lights over the front row, I'm guessing they're hitting the screen because they have a pretty wide beam of light to brighten the entire room's front and sides?

With the rest of the lights on (and the two front off/unscrewed) it all looks quite nice while still providing a decent amount of light all the way to the front row to see/eat/walk..is that how it works out in person, or do you have a different way you like to arrange things when you decide to watch with some light/s on?

The range of pictures with different light amounts and positions is super informative. Thanks for taking the time to get all those different images.

Thanks for the shots. The screen looks great and I’m sure the camera doesn’t do the picture you are seeing justice.

You will get many years of family enjoyment out of your theater. And please no fires.

You nailed it Ftoast. The bulbs in the cans are indoor flood lights... So they do a great job of lighting the area, but have a very wide throw?beam?area of effect?

With the front two unscrewed but the rest of the lights on we still have more than enough ambient light like you said to see, eat, and walk and get the same screen image as though the lights were all off. So in that respect the screen does exactly what I hoped it would do! I had a buddy over the other day suggest that I could put in some Phillips Hue bulbs in the front two cans, then I can manipulate those two locations as I see fit. I may actually run over to Lowe’s and grab a couple here in a bit, I think that may be just the solution for this.

It is my pleasure to be able to make some sort of contribution to the forums! Everyone here has helped to shape my project in some way, I’m very thankful for all the information and opinions available on the forums!

Thanks Bud! We are loving it, and look forward to sharing it with as many friends as possible! That includes everyone here on the forums, I’m not kidding with my offer for anyone that can make it here to come by and watch their movie of choice.

Hopefully the Nikon will help get a little more accurate capture of the light in the room!

So just left Lowe’s, they didn’t have the Hue’s in stock, BUT this caught my attention! I can use them as a direct replacement and swivel the heads with a bias towards to couches. Haven’t decided which I’ll do yet, because I like the option to control the front two with my phone if I use the Hue.

I'm glad to hear someone already suggested smart/remote lights. I was about to ask you if that would be an option, lol.
You might consider a similar but more generic version of the Hue product..There are versions with their own remotes (or 1"-2" threaded extensions that screw in between your fixture and bulb) and versions that use a wireless switch that you can place wherever you want in the room.

I'm not sure if the fixture version that you use with your own bulbs would fit fine or look weird because of the added length.
Lights with their own proprietary remotes can be trouble if the remote takes a walk somewhere sneaky.

Lights with a wireless switch and/or that can use a phone app are likely the best for not getting lost..or a wireless-switch/phone-app fixture extension with a shorter bulb to maintain the look of the rest of the room.
The Phillips Hue has a lot of competition, so there might be others worth checking out while you're looking.

That swivel fixture looks pretty neat. You might want to try aiming toward the left+right side walls rather than the seats in your case (it can give a more gently spread and less intensely directed light for the viewers while the screen fights the reflection from the walls) if you try aimable lights.
Do you feel like you'd prefer the higher amount of light (with it directed away from the screen) or are you fine with the amount of light when those fronts are unscrewed/off?..or is it possible to use app-remote dimming bulbs in those swivel fixtures to get both options?
Those swivels might be great for having extra light during sports/etc without hitting the screen as hard.

It would be awesome if I could do both! Thank you for the suggestions, I’ll start looking into the options for adding the smart extension, I’m thinking I should be able to make it fit up there, we’ll see.

Taken from the front row, far left seat, all over head lights on. The Office. Not too shabby at all I must say, for full light and horrible light location.

The swivel feature is an excellent idea for directional lighting in your HT room. There's definitely a learning curve when going with an ALR screen. Other options you can look into are adding dimmer switches if you don't have them installed already and playing with different wattage bulbs. You could also try adding plug in wall lamps on each side of the screen. I know Ikea sells them.

Since I began my ALR journey some years back, I've probably went through dozens of different bulb wattages, soft white bulbs, clear bulbs, and LED bulbs. The amount of lumens, the direction of the lumens, and the hue of the light make a big difference when it comes to using a alr screen. It's all a learning experience but it is a fun one.

And as I've stated before you are definitely ahead of the curve, because the Pulsar screen outperformed all other alr screens I've owned when it comes to maintaining a watchable image under overhead light with the only exception being the Elite Prime Vision Darkstar. So you have not lost anything performance by going with the Pulsar material. Your setup is coming along great so far.

Holy Crap! It gets better! Ok well, I knew it would get better when I took care of my over head light issue, but HOT DAMN! I was in love with the results I had before, now I'm over the moon!

Check this out. Before and after full light.

I decided on these lights because they had a full gimbal, where the first pair I found only had a swivel. The added benefit to these is the beam of light is much more focused than the floods I had in before. With these in I could have gotten away without the gimbal at all, but having it does give me the added flexibility to aim the lights. Also these lights are ALOT brighter than the floods they replaced, which worried me when I first turned them on. But in end they came out great! I still may order the smart socket extensions, more to play with them than anything.

Pics, still from the iPhone. Mostly centered, standing behind the second row. That stream of light on the ceiling next to the left can was a piece of tape from the manufacturer to help adjust the gimbal, it has since been removed and no more funny reflection on the ceiling. Also the memory position is all lined up now as well.

More pics standing behind the second row.
There is not any banding in person, that must be a failing of the camera.

Your new pics show quite the improvement. What a wonderful difference a slight change of direction of light can make. As I stated before owning an alr screen will definitely have you on a learning curve but it's a fun process and immensely satisfying when you finally get it right. The image on your screen looks fantastic in your latest pictures so installing the new directional light fixtures definitely has brought out the full potential of your Pulsar screen.

Thanks LL! It has been quite the journey, I have learned so much and have had a great time along the way. Now looking forward to building the riser for the back row!

Ahhhh....the smell of fresh cut wood. The melodic sound of a 3" screw squeaking down flush.

Don't wait too long.....

Rockabilly heavy on the rock, plays at
Radio Radio the second Friday of every month!








We'll get in free....of course!

Looking over finances, we may have to wait till later in the year.
We put a little more on credit than we prefer and need to get it paid down a bit.
I'll be pushing to get things going as fast as possible, I'd like to do it before the summer is over.

Completely understand that. This hobby though fun is not a cheap one. It is easy to let a budget get out of hand if you don't keep it under grips.

Well OK...that might be best as the Wife wants to come up at the same time to see her Sis, and as of now she is totally committed to watching my Son's new Triplets (Girls). Another 5 months and they will be 1 year old, so in 2-3 months she can hand them off to other, less industrious members of the extended Family. At least for a long Weekend.

If instead I make it up sooner for any other reason, I can stop over and check out that Screen Wall!
