    For more help on your long throw projector search, I am moving this thread to the displays area and will check back there soon.

    OK, what is your budget for a projector?

    I pulled up this quick search at projectorcentral on units that can achieve 100" from 19'...

    You're going to find that due the cost of optics, most projectors with that type of throw are in the higher price ranges. If you can afford that great, you'll also like the performance of a more expensive unit. If you are just designing your theater now you may save yourself some loot by choosing a different projector spot.
