Re: 135" screen owners?

We are going to make the screen the same size as the 2 car garage door... I can't wait either.

That's awesome! There really can't be anything like it, I've always wanted to have a cinema feel. I tell people I have a 63" plasma and I think it's small and they think I'm crazy ha.

Re: 135" screen owners?

You will find that a 135" screen at 12 feet is going to be a bit to large to fill your field of vision and you will find that you will be turning your head to catch everything and that's not ideal or relaxing. I know Ellisr63 has that size but it's not the norm. I have a 120" 2:35,1 screen and I sit at 12 ft and it's perfect. Plus I have two rows and everyone who comes and sits in the back row that's at 16 ft loves it also.

Home theater:
Onkyo 805, Yamaha YDP2006EQ, Samson Servo 600 amp
3 EV Sentry 500 monitors across the front, 4 Mission 762i's Surrounds, SVS PB13U sub, Panasonic BDT220, Harmony 1100, Nintendo WiiU
Panasonic PT-AE8000 on a 120" 2,35:1 fixed screen

Living room system:
Sherwood/Newcastle R972, Mission 765's, SVS SBS02's, A/D/S MS3u sub, Yamaha YDG2030EQ
Yamaha KX-393 Tape deck, CDC 805 CD changer, Panasonic BD60, Sony turntable PS-T20
Panasonic TC-P50ST60, HD-PVR & WDTV Live, Harmony 900

Oh I have no plans of making my MLP at 12'. I thought that would be way too close with this size screen but if some like it that way I won't say anything bad about it. If anything, I can move forward if I find that the screen is getting too small once I'm accustomed to it ha. But initially I'm thinking of 15-17' should work nicely. I'd love to have a 2:35.1 screen but going anamorphic is a bit costly for me right now so I settled for the large 16:9 which isn't too bad considering I do like to watch TV shows on Blu-ray so that screen will look great.

Re: 135" screen owners?

I made an error... My head is 14' from the 134" screen. My Klipsch LaScalas are on each side of the screen and they are in my vision at all times (inside of my glasses area) without moving my eyes at all.

Ahh, 14' seems a bit better I assume you don't have to turn your head to see the images on the sides? That's another thing I wanted to consider in how far I sit.

I 'd say 3.3 times your screen height.

I can keep my head straight and see my LaScalas on each side without turning my head at all.

I have a 142" and my center chair is back 13.5' and I like the positioning.
