Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

That's unfortunate that the channel is not marked. Would make life a lot easier. If you know approximately where they are, you could run 1x3 or 1x4's perpendicular and screw into the channels and the 1x would cover any unused holes. Then put hooks in the 1x to hang the panels.

I am serious... and don't call me Shirley.

I wonder if this would work...

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

I don't know what i was thinking when I said I had a 180" diagonal screen... Ever since i got the Panny, I have been complaining that there was something wrong because I couldn't fill the screen with a 2.35:1 movie even though I had the right throw. Well tonight i found out something... My screen is 180" wide not diagonal! I have been watching my 2.35:1 movies at 180" diagonal. The screen will actually do a 195" diagonal 2.35:1 movie. I am all set when I want to get a brighter, shorter throw projector down the road.

Hence the title... Go Big or Go Home. I plan on living here till I die, so this is my final HT room. I might change out projectors,PCs, and processors, but that is about it. Speakers (at least the front 3), and subs are forever.

Every time I sit down to watch a movie it is like I am in a private screening room.

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

Sorry if this has been posted, I get lost at times, but does your screen look like Imax?

In other words it fills the room from side to side?

That is going to be my goal in years down the road when I get a chance to build a HT room.

LOL... It goes about 6" from one wall, and about 6" from the rack on the other wall, so it is pretty close to wall to wall at the screen end plus screen frame rests on the stage and goes almost to the ceiling. Down the road when I see a LED projector that is bright enough and short throw I will move on to it so I can go from 180 to 195" diagonal for 2.35:1 movies. It is already like sitting in a real small movie theater though.

Re: Ellis Family Retirement HT: Go big or go home

And ya thats what I hope for in years to come. Wall to wall roughly. I've been looking at some short throw PJ's also lately. After I finish up a few builds, that will be next on my buy list. Maybe a 80" screen and will only have about 7ft throw. But thats another day. No wall to wall but this is just a living room

Sounds like a plan.
