Im considering that material from that seller in the for sale sections from BuildYourOwnProjectionScreen dot com. It shows a 1.2 gain, which is near what im looking for. Right now im using just a parkland plastics 85" X 48" screen. Heres the sad part, haha. Im using a Sony Ruby (bought it off the forums here for 1620 shipped). I really cant spend more than 200-300 right now on a screen and I know... that doesnt do the Ruby justice. Some might say to not even bother until I can spend more, but because of the location change, I kinda need to make a larger screen, like 120"

For the $200 to $300 price range you could simply buy an Elite Silverframe (fixed frame) screen with your choice of 3 different screen materials. AVS and forum sponsor VisualApex sell them. VA has the 120" for just under $300 (here is the LINK ).

Actually you can get fabric from the bigger companies in that range...such as Dalite. That will give you a bit more selection as well.


If you want a frame in that price range, the Elite is probably one of the best options.

Would the Powergain screen with 1.8 gain be too much? The projector is going to be mounted about 16ft back projecting on a 120" screen. The front part of the room is nearly pitch black, however the back of the room at times will be subject to light as its a dual purpose theater/entertainment room, however they are recessed and the eyelets are pointed towards the back of the room.


If I was to go with some Dalite fabric in the described room, what would you suggest? Does anyone have a link on how to build a good frame using this type of material?
