Hi guys ... So I ordered my Home Theater equipment late last year, but didn't get round to putting everything together till last weekend ... It took my like 2 days to setup majority of the stuff (cut cables, connect everything, setup 7 channel speakers with dual PS12-NSDs, receiver, projector, other equipment) ..
 
The only thing remaining is my Da-Lite HD Progressive 1.3 Gain 16:9 119" Cinema Contour Fixed Frame Screen, which I got from AVScience ... I still need to assemble this up, but it looked a little intimidating to me when I peeked into the packaging this last weekend :P
 
I plan to (hopefully) assemble it this coming weekend, but want to know in advance, how easy/hard is it to setup a projector screen, as I've never done it before ... Do I need a professional, or can I do it on my own .. ? I had a quick look inside the packaging for any assembling instructions, but couldn't find any .. Although I may need to move things around a little to search for it in my detail ..
 
So any advice here would be appreciated ! :)

Not done a Da-Lite in, well, ever...(Da-Lite isn't the first choice in acoustic...and all I ever install are acoustic).

Not difficult.

But why a 1.3 gain?

Hi

It will be very straight forward...if you have any mechanical skills. Get a level and a tape measure...then a screw drill / driver. 

Follow the instructions. If no instructions go to Dalite and down load them.

You will need at least 1 other person to assist you. 

Good luck.

Is there anything I can do which can damage the screen, permanently ? :P
 
This would be my first attempt at projector screen installing, so I want to avoid any common mistakes ..

most common mistake...touching the screen surface with dirty / oily fingers.
