    Hi everyone, I'm gonna buy Benq w1070 as my first projector. Screen will be 100" and i'll be viewing from 3 meters. I'll be watching mostly at nights. Room surfaces are light coloured, so i think there will be some reflection to the screen. I'm into fixed diy screen. One option i consider is...
  2. DIY Screens
    I am a little confused and need some help. My intent was to paint a BOC screen. My understanding is that the paint needs to be applied after it is stretched so it won't crack. That's where I'm at right now. I read somewhere in the past that you should roll the first coat or fuzz will come up...

I find painting to be kind of a huge pain while even a non-handy guy like me had zero trouble making...

    Cross-posting from AVS: Long story short, I painted my BOC screen with RS-MaxxMudd-LL. I also made panels of C&S Ultra from Hometheatershack, the Sherwin Williams ProClassic recommended in the Projector Central article, and unpainted BOC to compare them directly. I guess I shouldn't really be...

    I bought some projector screen cloth (vinyl style BOC) from an eBay dealer and I constructed a 140” screen using 2.5” x 1” pine from Home Depot (measurements from memory). The frame was strengthened with 5 vertical braces and metal “L” shaped brackets at every join. I stapled grey felt to the...

    This is the last sticky thread. If anyone can think of anything that should be covered with a sticky to go over the basics and provide information and specs on a method that was not covered, send me a PM and I will get a thread going. This thread is one that I am going to need some help with...
