    Wow, I did not realize how rough the out side structure was. That's sunlight I see through the walls! It looks like it will be a big and cool looking theater once completed. what are the dimensions.
    What am I doing here on the net, I have sheetrock work to do on mine! Got to get this done.

    Looks like a nice big home theatre. What are you going to put in it, overhead projection?

    I'm going to put a CRT -projector inside a table, that way it's easier to maintain and I can use a high gain reflecting screens. But there is a major problem: I do not know which projector I'm going to buy. 10 feet wide picture requires good quality projector...

    You will have to drive the guns in a CRT projector very hard to get a good picture on a screen 10 feet wide. I would recommend looking into a JVC DILA G-15. I have this setup and am very happy with the picture quality using a Rock+ scalar. If you want to stay with CRT you would have to use a projector with 8 inch guns at a minimum and more likely a 9 inch projector.

    Yes, I know the problem about CRT -projectors. Wide picture needs a very powerful projector, 8" tubes at least.
    D-ILA is good technology. Only bigger problem, which I have heard, is very expensive bulbs. $500+ each and maximum lifespan of 2000 hours. I've heard that these D-ILA's are quite noisy too. Correct me if I'm wrong! [​IMG]
