    I'm thinking of buying gatorboard for my screen. I've noticed the specs say no more than 165 degrees continuous. I'm using a Sony vplhs20 projector. There shouldn't be a screen temp anywhere near 165, correct?

    On a separate matter, I was thinking of placing my sub out by the seating area or in back rather than under the screen. I was thinking that there would be a better effect there. I have a 19x12 room and a 6.1 system.

    Your screen won't get hot.

    Place your sub with the goal of avoiding a location that is a room "null". Use a SPL meter and take response measurements. The quick way is to set the sub in your main listening seat, then take measurements at various possible sub locations, then place the sub at a location other than those that measure very low response
