When you fill the width of your 140" wide screen, you are at mid throw? Reason I ask, mid throw for a 140" wide image would be (24'-6") at absolute max throw for your 16:9 image (24'-6 3/8") on your 2.37 screen. What is your throw distance? I also used 0.98 gain for the XD screen.Thanks Mike. How about my other question here:
Mike - Unless I misunderstood, when we went through the lumens and nit calculation, I think you said you would expect me to get somewhere around 90 - 100 nits on a new bulb. Can you please detail your math and thinking which led to that, as I don't recall. In my quote above you can see my reasoning for why I think it will be in the 70s nits. I could be off base, but would like to know how you arrived at your estimate so I can compare with mine. Thanks!
For quick reference, I have a 0.93 gain 2.37 AR 140" wide screen (XD). Please calculate on that and then I'll reduce your estimated nits by 10% if going with the V6 screen.
