    My room is 19'5 by 11'2. i would love two rows of atleast 3, but is that possible with comfy seating? Also what is the largest screen i can view comfortable with a great picture. No windows in room. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. I will be doing most the work myself. Right now it is just framed up. Thanks A

    That room should be long enough for 2 rows of seating. What type of seats are you thinking of? Since you'll have 2 rows, screen size will be a compromise. About 120" diagonal would be good.

    I was hoping to be able to do some powered recliners. Will that work? Maybe 4 in the back row and 3 in the front? Wow a 12O'' screen thats awesome i was thinking I could only get about 100".

    To be sure, you need to measure how much room the rear recliners would need. That will show you where the front row will wind up. If the rear row is close to rear wall, the front seats would probably be about 12' from screen. The only reason you couldn't use a 120" diagonal screen is if your ceiling is too low. Also, your projector needs to be bright enough for your screen.
