I would like to put a small window in the wall between my unfinished basement and the new finished basement for a projector. Currently, I am planning the theater around one of the DILA units. The distance from this rear wall to the screen is approximately 13 - 15 feet (have not decided on location for motorized screen).
Where should I locate the window with respect to the ceiling? The room has a height of just over 7 feet.
If this has been covered before, I apologize - what should I search on?
You should be able to find that information on the projector company website. Projector have different throw distance. It depend of a lots of things: zoom capability, screen desire size, type of lens. It is impossible to give you an exact answer if you don't have the name and model of the projector you want to buy. As a rule of thumbs, bigger your screen will be, closer to the ceiling your projector.
