looking at the Da-Lite 58x104.
viewing distance will be about 21-22'. ceiling height is 87".
or would the 52x92 work out best?
probably going with the Panasonic L300U

I suspect your seating is a little too far out for that projector. At 21-22' from the screen, you'll be 2.5 times screen width for even the 104" wide screen, which is a fairly high ratio. In terms of screen brightness, you may be pushing the L300 for that size screen as it's only an 800 lumen projector. At the very least you should consider going with a high gain screen, and any ambient light will be pretty bad. (Though from your picture it looks like you may have full light control.)
