"11ft 16 inches" ? So ... 12ft 4" ?

How high is the shelf and how high do you want the top of the image ? What is your budget ? Mounting upside down will be a requirement for an entry level (<$1500) projector, and most of the ones that can be upright with the image lower than the top of the screen have larger cases than will fit on a shelf and are $2000+. What will you be watching ? Just 2D movies, 3D movies, gaming, TV ? What does the room look like ? Complete darkness with dark walls and ceilings or a more typical living/family room with beige or white walls and ceilings ? What is you budget ? Are you considering used or only new projectors ?

Yes its 12 ft 4 inches. Totally dark room will paint front wall in a dark color. Ceiling is white cathedral style back wall is higher. I would want the center of the screen at eye level when i sit on the couch. Want to buy new. Guessing i would need a projector with lense shift. Looking at the epson 3500 and the new ones that just came out.
Looking for tv viewing sports and movies.
Also will the benq 2050 or 3050 work if i mount upside down on the wall.

In a good room, the Sony HW45ES, Epson 5030, Epson 5040.

Lower budget = lower quality... Epson 3000 series, which likely is bested by BenQ HT2050, which must be upside down.

Why not mount upside down? Not that I care, but I would hate for you to get a lower quality image if you don't have to.

Yes, both the BenQs will work from that throw to produce up to a 120" image if you don't mind mounting them to the underside of the shelf instead of setting on top of the shelf. You can even build yourself a miniature table with four adjustable legs 12" deep and 18" wide and mount the projector to the underside of it, then set the whole table with projector attached on top of the shelf.

There is really no reason to limit yourself to projectors with lens shift if you have freedom of shelf height and aren't afraid of Home Depot and screwdrivers.

The BenQs will still work for your screen size. Yes, a wall mount will work. I was under the impression you already had a shelf unit or bookcase furniture in mind.

I also put my projector on a shelf, roughly the same distance. I currently have an old Panasonic, but the lens shift on the Epson 3500 looks more than sufficient. I haven't checked to see if the new 3000 series projectors have the same amount of shift.
