    Hi...

    Just a quick question regarding a projection screen. I finally got my screen for my home theater. I'm currently framing it for a 120". My question is should the screen be angled down a bit towards the seating area. Is it like my projection T.V. where the sweet spot is the center of the screen. I've seen a few of them before and did not notice much of a drop when viewing off angle like on a rear projection TV.

    I'll be sitting approx. 18-22 feet away from the screen. Any tips would be appreciated. My home theater room has 9 foot walls so I can set the screen pretty much at any height that looks good.

    I'm currently building the frame and it would be easier to fine tune it in the shop than once it is bolted to the wall.

    Thanks

    Mark

    I've never seen anyone angle a screen down like that.....it occurs to me that you would run into focussing problems due to the top of the screen being closer to the lens than the bottom.
