    Is there a minimum height a projector should be mounted at? I am in the process of constructing a home theater in my basement. Due to A/C vents and where I want my HT located, the projector has to be mounted under an A/C vent at about 6'10".

    Is this a problem?

    as far as the height goes, depends on the projector. depending on your screen height, you would need to check with the manufacturer about keystone correction.
    I would worry about under an A/C duct. direct cold air can get condensation, and that can be very bad for electronics. Even if it isn't direct cold air, I'd still be hesitant about it...

    Thanks for the response...not too concerned about condensation...have had no issues with that.

    my main concern is being able to project the image at the desired height. any feedback on this?

    If you FP has lens shift it should be OK. The lens height on my FP is about 6'5". And the top of my screen is about 6'3". Which projector are you interested in?
