  1. DIY Screen Section
    Hi, Planning to buy FlexiWhite screen. I thought I could build a frame for it, but now I think a roll down screen is my only option. Here the reply from Carl's support: I need 1.1 gain and maybe paint a screen, so I guess I should take FlexiWhite, but what about roll down+FlexiWhite. I...
  2. Screens
    In selecting a screen/projector combination I’m trying to understand the real tradeoffs for screens, which may impact the projector choice. This is being set up in a dedicated light-controlled HT where viewing angle is not an issue. I am looking at the Epson LS12000 and Sony XW5000 (or something...
  3. Screens
    Long time listener, first time caller (in fact, first time projector). I'm looking for advice on white vs. gray screen. Screen: Screen Innovations Zero Edge 133" Projector: Epson LS12000. The considerations: 1. I just wallpapered my room with comic book pages. Most of them are dark...
  4. Ultra Short Throw (UST) Projectors
    If I were to come to you and say, I’d like to buy a UST projection system that provides me with a 120” UST image. I have between 50-150 lux hitting the screen from windows to the side (no overhead lighting). Budget would range between $7500-$12,500. Viewing distance is 15’. 50/50 Movie/Gaming...
  5. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Hello! I have a Denon X1200H (I have no meter to measure to voltage of the sub pre out) and a DSP (Omnitronic SMARD24) Following questions: The DSP reads a peak input voltage of +6dbu when the AVR is set to 0db with a -11db Subwoofer trim. This equals to 1.55V I think? The amplifier (Pronomic...

    Hi. I'm going to get an EPSON TW6700. It's been reviewed to output around 3000 lumens in bright mode, and 1900 lumens in eco mode when calibrated. No manual iris. I used a foot-lambert calculator and at 1.0 gain with my planned 95 inches diagonal, I'm getting 108 ftL in bright mode and 74 ftL...
  7. DIY Screen Section
    Hello all! I'll give some quick background because my situation is different than most posts on the forum. I work for an art museum that often shows video works. (My job title is Chief Preparator, something I'd never even heard about before I got the job! I've been here 6 years now and love...
  8. Screens
    Room size: 14' x 18' x 7' First row to screen: 8' Second row to screen: 14' Projector to screen: 13' Sony 1080p Projector I am wanting to upgrade my screen to something larger, currently have a 100" Screen Innovation Slate with .8 gain (not ideal I'm sure for a light controlled room). Really...
  9. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    There's no particular problem, I just want to learn if I'm doing this as best I can with regard to the health of my equipment and standard practice. From my untrained ears, I've perceived no different in quality when changing the way each stage deals with gain to obtain the final, desired...
  10. Outdoor Theaters
    I am adding a projector to my pool deck. I have already invested a lot of money in four speakers for my pool deck. I am trying to utilize them. It kind of works, but I have a serious sound level issue. I have attached the complicated diagram. I am tapping the sound from my receiver, then...
  11. Subwoofers, Bass, and Transducers
    Hi everyone! I just bought a second hand REL R-528SE. I noticed that the LFE input gives me very low output compared to the High Level input (speakon). Where the high level volume control is dialed in at the 10 o'clock position the LFE volume is dialed in at the 2 o'clock position to get a...
  12. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    What is the relation between amplifier RMS/peak power, source level and the speaker power rating? Let's say 8 ohm speakers could handle 100 watts by the spec. The amplifier puts out 300W/8Ω of continuous power per channel with a peak of 450W/4Ω per channel. If the amplifier gain is set to 1/3...
  13. DIY Speakers and Subs
    Hi, I'm reading up on setting the gain structure in the signal chain, it's especially important when you are mixing pro and consumer gear. Am I understanding this correctly: 1) Zero out all AVR trim levels. 2) Set AVR to 0dB, play a 0dBFS sine wave at various frequencies and ensure the input...
  14. DIY Speakers and Subs
    Hi guys, This is the setup: AVR Denon X4400H (LFE enabled, speakers to small) --> subwoofer 1 out MiniDSP 2x4HD, with LinkWitz transform and PEQ on the two output channels --> Crest Audio Pro-LITE 7.5 amplifier--> Two sealed subwoofers. AVR LFE pre-out voltage RMS: unknown MiniDSP 2x4HD...
  15. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Dear, I tried to build a formula that would allow me to choose the right projector according to the desired screen size, the available throw distance and the light level of the place. The following is what I think I should do as a calculation. When I do it, the result is strange and not the...
  16. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Hello there audio guys :-) This is my first thread here in this forum and i'm a bit puzzled about all the voltage and sensitivity thing concerning Amps I'm thinking about buying a Lab Gruppen FP10000Q Amp and i'm researching a bit to know how to properly set it up to my system. When i see the...
  17. Screens
    Hello AVS people, I just created an account because I've been researching screens this week. After projecting onto my white wall for the past year I've decided to get a projection screen to up the image brightness and take away some of the bumpiness of the wall image. I almost bought the first...

    Our school purchased a used HD6K to be used in the gym for film nights. The expected audience is about 200 people. We need to buy a screen to match the projector. What is the optimal size and gain for the screen? We would like to have it large in order to give a real theatre effect. The...
