HT Room, Paint First OR Setup First??

I will be setting up my first HT room ever and I'm super pumped. I will be painting the room with the ROSCO black velvet paint with a base primer of regular black matte paint just like someone on this forum did(can't remember the name). The only thing I am not sure what to do is if I should setup the room with the projector and screen FIRST(nothing else), then take down the screen and projector to paint OR should i just paint the whole room and then setup the project, screen, speakers, etc.......?

Thanks

This is the blackest least reflective paint Rosco makes. Keep in mind the paint scuffs easily. I would not seeing any benefit of putting any equipment in the room prior to painting . That would only seem like a negative to me.

What about the Rosco supersaturated velour black? Would this one be darker?

Yes. It has been tested. Slightly better.

I didn't go all the way black with special AV paint (mine's just matte Sherwin Williams paint, can't remember the name but their higher end line) but I chose a really dark red on the walls and dark grey on ceiling. I painted first and then made liberal use of blue non marking painters tape to aid with marking locations/distances with all the setup. I went with a false wall mounted acoustically transparent screen which resulted in some scuffing due to being friction fit but that was fixed with a small amount of touch up painting.
