I've looked around for awhile now, thought I had everything figured out for a screen size and all but now I have a problem when I use one of the calculators for screen size.


My room is 13 1/2W X 13 3/4l


Using a calculator or even the 2X the distance rule my screen would only be 23inch wide. Is that right? Can someone tell where I went wrong?


thanks.

you want to sit 2x screen width?


if you sit 3 feet from the back wall you can have a 5 foot wide screen.


optimally you would want a 30 degree viewing angle but maybe you should try something wider like a 6-7 foot wide screen. This of course should be weighed against the quality of your display device and source material.
