    I am building a new theater room and I plan to use the BenQ PE7700 (unless someone can advise me otherwise [​IMG]). The room will be 14 x 16 and the screen will be one of the short walls at the end of the room. This gives me 16 feet of area with which to mount the projector.

    I am curious as to how far back is recommended for a 100 inch screen. Also I am cusious as to whether a 100 inch screen will be too big on one of the 14 foot walls in that room. Finally, I was planning on using the 1.78:1 aspect ratio for the screen, but I am unsure as to whether this is the best choice.

    Your thoughts and suggestions would be most welcome.


    Thanks very much for your time.

    If you check out Projector Central it should answer most of your questions.

    Good luck
