Did you get a custom cabinet maker or an AV place to give to a quote?
Hey guys, here are the sketches. Unfortunately, several factors in the past few weeks have made me change plans a couple of times. Teething pain, I guess. lol Long story short, the local cabinet maker wanted $5,565 to build me this cabinet. Then my Vividstorm screen was just not up to par due to many build deficiencies, so I ended up going with a Grandview ALR fixed screen which looks amazing. As for the cabinet, I am just glad I did not fork up that cash because 1, that is a lot of cash to dump on a cabinet and 2, the Vividstorm experiment did not work out and that would have rendered my $5K+ cabinet useless, at least with a huge empty hole where the projector would have been.
Also, since my viewing distance is 12', I have to make sure my 120" screen's bottom edge is about 16" off the floor. Any higher and I start getting neck strains. The cabinet was designed for a 20", so that would put the bottom of the image at 35" off the floor. No bueno.
One word of advice for you guys thinking about building a cabinet to house BOTH the projector and riser screen. Now that I've had a chance to play around with this pj, I would HIGHLY ADVISE AGAINST IT! This pj is EXTREMELY tedious to get it squared away with the screen. By having the screen fixed into position in the same cabinet with the pj, will limit your ability to move them and your image might NEVER line up.
I have other findings and questions I want to share with you guys, but I'll create another post because I have to run now. BTW, the pj is a great pj. The picture it throws is an amazing one, but it's just so hard to get it squared away with the screen. I'll elaborate more on that later.
