Hello,


im looking at getting a projector screen to pull down over my current TV/Speaker setup.


I dont have very much space at the moment before i get my dedicated space in a few years.


I found a 84" screen that just fits into the area i have to work with but i was told i should get a tab tensioned screen to avoid getting waves in the screen.


When i looked at some tansioned screens this made the case length longer meaning i could only fit a 73" screen.


As i only have a small area i would like the biggest screen possible, so if i get the 84" screen and get some waves is it easy to deal with?


Does it distract you/ get annoying or anything like that?

How long does a screen take to get these waves?


Thanks

- Panic

Waves do get annoying. Get a Da - Lite High Power screen - it does not need tensioning. Electric or manual pull down.

Thanks for the reply,

where do the waves occur? is it at the bottom?

If i am watching a 2.35:1 etc movie would i not see the waves?

Probably the edges. But generally, a screen company like Da - Lite won't sell a manual or electric screen with material that will do that without it being tensioned to begin with. The materials in the non tensioned screens they sell ( like the High Power material ) tend to be stiffer and not wrinkle or have waves.
