Im new to this but i just bought my house about 5 months ago and im redoing the basement. I dont have a whole lot of room to work with but im wanting to start my home theater build. Im wanting to see how big of a screen i can put in the space i have. The wall i plan on projecting on is 90" accross to where a door is or 10' accross if i were go over the door. I have 7' ceilings also. But here's the kicker. I have duct work that runs under my floor joists which is 10" from the wall i want to project on. Is that enough room to put a nice sized picture on the wall. thanks.:help::help:

Welcome to the Shack.

There is a post-padding thread available to get your post count up to 5 so you can post pics/sketches in your thread. That would help a lot for us to help you.

Without seeing that, it all depends on how far down the ducting comes, what the ceiling height of the room is, etc.

Yes, pictures would help allot. How far down due the ducts hang? They shouldn't hang that far down and you could always replace them with a duct that is not as tall.

Where does this door lead to? In my opinion the screen right next to a door would not only make the screen off center is would also look a little kludgy.

You could do a false wall in front of the door (like a foot in front) and then just remove a panel on the false wall to gain access to whats behind that door.

So that was the long answer.. short answer your looking at a 100" diagonal screen. That leaves you about 1 1/2 feet on each side of the screen and about 2 -2 1/2 feet above and below. Any bigger and it will start to look a little ridiculous.
