What is the ceiling height and bulkhead height? This tool might help:Hello,
I am finally pulling the trigger on a home theater in my basement. Both integrators I had provide me prices have recommended going with the Sony VPL-VW325ES projector, but are trying to sell me a 110" screen.
I would love to jump up to a 130" screen if possible and have measured so many times to ensure it falls with in Sony's spec in regards to the minimum throw distance. Long story short, after factoring in the finished walls, projectors depth and mounting location, I am precisely at the minimal throw distance for a 130" screen. This is with the units back basically toughing the wall. (In my case, while the room is 26' long, there is a bulk head that sits in the way causing me to have to place the projector this close)
My question is, would it work out just fine being so close to the minimum throw distance, possibly 1 - 2 " too close for the screen, or should I step down to a 120" and give myself a lot more room to play? If the projector ends up being a little too close, would that simply mean a smaller picture on the screen by a few millimeters? I personally rather than a few mm less than to step down and have 10" less. but am worried about it sitting on the minimums.
Any thoughts? Thanks!
