I've got one center speaker above, and one below (and have tried just one above, and one below, and expended a lot of effort, with no real satisfactory solution, but one above and one below is best).

The SOLUTION, I know (of course, it's what the pros use in real theaters), is a sound transparent screen.

So, what are my options. I find online some cheap ones, such as "120" ACOUSTIC TRANSPARENT Projection Screen Material", made by 'ProScreens'. No specifications provided. I make the frame, but no problem.

As for the major reviewers of 'home theater', there's almost nothing, except the initial outrageously priced stuff (>$3000, for a medium screen size).

Any comments, anyone...

Check out http://www.jamestownhometheaterscreen.com

James can hook you up with something 110-120" in the $500-$600 range using Seymour Center Stage XD material.

Another option is from Elite Screen. Here are prices I got from Projector People
Fabric only ZR106WH1 A4k $636 + $30 shipping (106" material only)
SE100WH1 A4K $923 + $69 shipping (100")
SE110WH1 A4K $1,042 + $69 shipping (110")

You can see the screen samples here:

You might check this out too, Paul.

Their site also has pull-down, permanent, and floor-stand screens. Some offer perf screen material and others don't (use the drop-down menus).

They can also arrange for screen material samples if you want to see what a particular fabric looks like. You'll want to check out the perf screen because it will dim your image slightly and if you're too close (as with some home theater settings), you'll see the perforations which could be objectionable.

Great product! I got a sound transparent screen from James.

"I now have open and transparent sound. Last night after setting up my sound transparent screen, for the first time, my dog responded to another, recorded dog barking! I'm now hearing classical and acoustic music that seems magical: live, palpable, within the room. With the center, and the left and right speakers, behind the screen, the imaging in 3-D space is now striking, the clarity (in all aspects, including dialogue) remarkable and the the audible image as it pans across the screen is now convincingly coherent (cars blow across like they were on the second floor, of my house!), all for the first time. OK, it's much better!. Now, I truthfully could not now tell wether the cell phone ringing in a movie is mine or someone else's! This improvement in sound is perhaps the biggest of them all, for me."

Wow quite the endorsement for AT screen. I built an AT screen with 1x3 primed MDF and used spandex from spandex world. We still have not set up the projector so I cant say how it performs but I am very excited about how this will turn out. Under a hundred bucks for a 110" screen
