Screen too low or is this ok for 125"

The room I am using for my setup has a 7ft ceiling. I was wanting to go with a 125" screen but it seems like the bottom edge of the screen is about 12" from the floor. Eye level is approx. 36" and distance from screen to the couch eye level is approx. 12ft



I have taken into account the motorized housing, etc.


So will I be ok with this or do I need to go to a smaller screen? Would *hate* to go smaller but if it's what needs to be done so be it.

With a 7 foot ceiling how is the bottom of the screen 12 feet from the floor?

As long as there is not a second row, 12 inches should be fine.

Where will the center channel be placed? If behind the screen you will need an acoustically transparent screen.

Im going to find a way to mount it down there and angle it up or I was thinking of getting a slim center channel like the Polk slim center channel in the picture below, and get a little more height out. My setup is Atmos 7.1.4 which kinda complicates things...

My first home theater 17 years ago in my basement with 6’4” ceilings I had a 6’ high screen and it was awesome. Only 2” off the floor. I set up my AVR for a phantom center channel and it was great. I now have a center channel but when watching alone or just the two of us in the perfect seats I still switch to phantom.
