    Hello HTS members, I am a new recruit hoping to get some advice about DIY home theater screens. I had been reading through black widow threads until my eyes were bloodshot, but today I noticed that a screen of the exact dimensions I hope to build is available used for sale on craigslist...

    I have my paint colors down in case I do go with a paintable substrate. But yesterday after researching I've been thinking more and more about just using the wilsonart Designer white or fashion gray. I've been looking through all the options over and over again and been seeing each ones...

    I aquired a sample of WA DW matt -60 yesterday. The first thing I noticed is that it hotspots horribly. My understanding was that the WA DW would make a good screen, but certainly not the material I got. After perusing several forums I've noticed others with the same experience. And yet many...

    Hi people. Long time lurker, newbie to posting. I'm looking to build a screen for my basement home theater set up. I'm looking at Wilsonart Designer White or Fashion Gray laminates and/or painting options (S I L V E R or Silver fire). I am heavily leaning towards a paint free option (with...

    When I built the HT a friend gave me an extra quart of Screen Goo grey. I rolled it on, masked it with black velvet tape and installed black velvet curtains all around. It's 8ft wide, 16:9. Theater has zero windows, dark brown walls/ceiling. I have total control over all light. PJ is an...

    I'm getting close to buying a 5x12 piece of the Wilsonart DW laminate screen, but am not really thrilled about the idea of having to build a frame or gluing it to a board. Instead I was thinking of putting top and bottom of the screen between two reasonably heavy (not excessively so) beams and...

    I'm trying to decide which way to go. If I go with the screen material, I would buy the pulldown screen, cut the material off and use my wood frame. I just don't know if the screen material is pliable enough to get a tight fit on the frame with staples. 1) Designer White laminate screen 2)...

    Hello Everyone, My first post, and I'm very happy to be part of this forum. Thanks in advance to all for their input and shared knowledge. I placed an order for a JVC HD550(RS15) this afternoon, and it should be in tomorrow. I'm very excited and can't wait to unbox and get it fired up. This...

    Hello, I have been following both the BW and the Wilsonart threads. I actually setup a 95" BW screen and was happy with it, other than the 4:1 was a darker than I expected. Unfortunately, 96" turned out to be way smaller than I wanted. So I went to 116" and just painted the (really bad) wall...
  10. General Screen Discussion
    Is the HD70 bright enough to use Fashion Grey laminate for a screen, or would I be better off using Designer White?? I will be using a 96" screen in a light controlled basement. Thanks for the help.

    Hey Mech.... Couldn't find a sample card of Platinum at HD. What shade does it fall in between? Has anyone speculated on how it will perform?
  12. DIY Screens
    Anyone have any opinions on Wilsonart Platinum? My story: I got some 2"x3" sample chips from Home depot for Designer white - I found it really hotspotted, wasn't really any brigher than my current da-lite screen (Certainly it's darker than a US sheet of 8.5x11 paper like you'd use in a copier)...

    S-I-L-V-E-R vs Wilsonart Designer White Laminate S-I-L-V-E-R is a mix that has always intrigued me and yet I never wanted to try it as the person who came up with this mix has stated over and over about how it is not for the feint of heart. That plus the fact it's not an ambient light solution...
