Marshall thanks for the reply, I have a hard enough time texting on my phone, nevermind leaving a form post.Non AT recommendation would be the Black Widow paint mix found here on the Shack. I'd link, but it's hard to do on my mobile device. Maybe someone else can link for me, or just do a search for Black Widow and the official thread should pop up.

Because I am short on depth for my room, I don't think I can go the AT route =c(. Its a shame because I really wanted to do it that way. 30" takes away to much and sits me to close to the screen and back wall.The only problem with side masking on an AT screen is that it puts your speakers behind the masking.
That's why personally, I prefer to get the 16:9 screen and then mask top and bottom.
Ok Bryan,My bad. Thought you were going AT.
That said, you shouldn't let screen size drive seating location. If you need/want AT then put the seats where they need to go acoustically and size the screen accordingly. Setting screen size first is kinda backward IMO.
You have close to 18' to play with. I've done rooms with AT screens that size that had 2 rows of seating and they were in good places and not up against a wall.
Nothing wrong with non-AT certainly. Just making sure you're going through the right decision sequence.
