EluneVision Reference 4K Tab Tension Install

Finally got my 120" EluneVision Reference 4K ceiling mounted tab tension screen up. So far i'm quite happy with it. Advice if you order, double check which side the power is on. The unit I got is from "newer" stock as such the power was on the opposite side of what the cut-sheet showed online, so my newly run power in the ceiling was on the wrong side. Thankfully, I used an extension cord and was able to conceal it.


The unit itself is quite well built, very responsive RF remote. I like the black case. It is heavy, I suggest 3 people to install a screen this size. The hardest part was doing surgical incisions into the existing GWB ceiling to install a few 2x4s on edge running perpendicular to the "I" joists above. That alone took nearly 4 hours to do it in a way to prevent too much ceiling repairs.

Very nice I have actually considered going with their Aurora tab tension screen. Is that a 2.35 screen? How long was the build and ship time?

Yep, 2.35:1 Love it. Just need to get a better projector.

Ship time was great! Think I had it within a week (within Canada).

Setup was easy; however I had a few hours of prep work before had to put in support inside my existing drywall ceiling. That took about 4 hours as I didn't want to open up more ceiling than needed to. I was able to do two surgical incisions of only 4" x 5" and get my 2x4 blocking up there to span my beams.

I'd say a screen my size should have 3 people. 2 installing + 1 spotter. I'd say actual install is 10-15 mins, from there adjusting and setting up could be another 30-60 mins depending on your situation. The wall/ceiling brackets are great and allow side to side adjustability. Just had a few lessons in setting up. There are a couple of temporary brackets on back that hold screen in during shipping. Didn't notice that at first and had to use my spotter to hold screen while i went to get an allan key to remove so we could slide the screen into place.

Cons (and minor quirks)
- Lower limit setting is hard to get to, but once done, you won't have to adjust it ever again.
- A bit of rippling, I need to fine tune the tension a bit. Still figuring that out.
- Instructions could be a bit better, and are small. Best is to go to their website and download a PDF manual.

Pros
- I'm no expert but the screen is great. I'm using an old Epson EX7235 768p data projector and it's never looked so good. I thought i'd have to rush out and get a better projector, but now I can wait 1-3 months while I decide.
- Comes VERY well packaged from EluneVision. Lots of protection
- Ask for NEW stock. That's what I got. Other than power on the other side of the screen than shown on their drawing online, I'm not sure what the difference is. But that's what I got.
- Includes all the brackets, ceiling hooks, RF controller, 12v trigger wire & wired controller.
- Once up very easy to use. The included RF remote is super great! Only downside is that I need to upgrade my older Harmony Touch to get a Hub with RF repeater to get my screen to work with my Harmony.

If you have any more questions, DM me

Looks nice. I'm shopping for same screen. Can I ask how you decided on the 120" size?

Final size was based on my room dimensions and projector throw. I didn't have enough distance in the depth of my theatre to go larger than the 120" 2.35:1. I knew I wanted cinemascope! My wife wasn't sure and now she loves it. A bit bigger would have been great from MVP but might have been too big from the front row.

A plan and side section/elevation attached. As I am a commercial interior designer, I did the drawings myself. I'm by no means an expert on A/V. I usually delegate that to someone else

Yes I just moved to Kingston, so I'm grateful to have discovered Elunevision screens. I'm fitting my setup in a living room, so the smaller sized 120" might work better than the 130." Not sure though.

I enjoyed looking at the detail in those drawings!

Hey bud

I’m looking at getting this exact screen...I need to drop it down in front of an 85” Sony 900F...just bought a JVC N7 and want to go 120” 2.35...a few questions.

1) could you please help me understand how u were able to get away with the 2 very small ceiling incisions? Did you insert strapping perpendicular between the joists just in the exact location that you needed for the screen casing mount points?

2) from measurement perspective, if the casing is say 4 in in depth, does the screen protrude from the Center point ie. 2 inches of depth?

3) are you 100 percent wrinkle free?

4) when facing the screen, is the power cord on the left or right hand side?

Thanks for the help...

Install looks great.

Looking at the light bloom on the ceiling a darker color or a light absorbing velvet material may well improve PQ as much as a better projector.

Correct me if I’m wrong but instead of cutting the ceiling, you could wall mount and simply have a couple blocks on the wall to mount to allowing the screen to be offset from the wall far enuf to clear the distance of the tv?

I felt safer doing it from the ceiling as there is significant weight and felt just blocks with long bolts wouldn't take the weight. You would need special metal "L" brackets in my opinion to do that as you are now cantilevering the screen off the wall.

THere is less light bloom now that the new Epson 5040ub is installed. There are future plans for different ceiling design that will conceal some of the light bloom and more. But for now new cusotm CNC'd brass panels on the wall behind the TV/screen for an art deco appearance when using the room as a bar.
