    Hi,
    I need advice on a screen for my dedicated home theater. Cost is an issue, but I don't want picture quality to suffer because of my budget.

    So, here goes:

    1) 16:9 ratio ... 140" on the diagonal.

    2) White screen, but has to be sound transparent. (Speakers will be behind the screen.)

    3) I prefer a black border (frame).

    4) Easy to assemble.

    5) Looks amazing in a room with no external light coming in.

    Am I forgetting anything?

    What's my budget? I'd prefer to see what I can get for what ... give me choices, if you can, and explain why for each.

    Thanks in advance for your help,

    Kip P.

    PS I looked at 2 on Amazon ... the bad reviews really "unsold" me on those models.

    Just wondered what went wrong with this question?
    Too much work to answer? No screen experts out there?
    Did I phrase it incorrectly?

    Trying to improve ... to get some help,

    You want an Acoustically Transparent (AT) screen. There’s a bunch available.

    Screen Innovations is one of several retail manufacturers.
    https://www.screeninnovations.com/

    And there are a lot of consumer-direct like Elite. And you can even buy material DIY your own AT screen.
