So I've found a deal on a used Carada that I'm really tempted to buy, but it's a little less than ideal for my space. It's a 114" cinema white , and my space has a fair amount of ambient light during the day , that I'm just not willing to block completely , so I was leaning toward a gray screen to help fight that. The other issue is that the 114" is going to end up only 3 1/2" from each side wall . I really don't want to project more than about 106" , speakers have to be above screen due to doors on each side of screen wall , projector can't be hung lower than where it is now , etc. etc.
My questions are , how silly will this look with side and bottom masking somewhat permanently mounted to drop the 114" to 106" ? Has anyone done this?
Secondly , does anyone know if Carada will sell their gray screen without frame , so I can switch it out?
This deal seems to be great enough to give it a shot , so I might do it even if I don't get a response before i get too jazzed about it, but I'd like some feedback on whether or not I'm nuts for thinking about it. I might even go totally crazy and cut the frame down to 104"-106" size before ordering the gray screen so I don't have to worry about masking. Thanks
