First, great forum. Thank you! Scenario: Basement room 13.5' long by 10.5' wide (I guess thats smallish?) Ceiling only 6.6' high! Particle/MDF ceiling. Concrete walls on 2 sides, wood fiber board partition walls on 2 sides. 2 wood doors. I already "started" by gutting all peg boards, lighting fixtures (except 1 bulb for working!) . I have to move a fridge and old Armoir out of the room (need to move outlet to other side of wall for fridge, I think I need the space with this room). Room will be dedicated HT, mostly movies, but I can envisage this becoming main TV room (hopefully). I've been reading this forums, especially the "I wish I did" threads, fantastic. I also took before pictures (well after I started the demo). Room has one small window, easily becomes pitch black if needed, but I'd like a little light for drinks/food etc. 2 Heavy Duty outlets in 1 partition wall already. 2 sets of new wire already poking out of ceiling, capped off. OK, my plans, Infocus 4805 (although I read somewhere some people see rainbows? that worries me). Ceiling mounted. 85" home built screen, do I need Screen Goo or can I use something cheaper on some MDF board? Last row of seating (I'll start with old futon for now) 11.5' back (maybe 12', depends on speakers etc), on riser platform, I'm willing to go 6" up, small ceiling as it is. Front row, probably splurge for recliner chairs, maybe just 2, they will be 9' back. I found an on-line calculator that says that seating configuration is god for SMPTE (last row) and THX (front row) viewing angles(roughly). Is that correct? Too close/far away? Is that projector good for this ? Or should I get the 5000? My budget is very limited, but I can pant all the walls flat black and the ceiling flat black, get the projector and build my own screen/platform. I already have an older 5.1 surrond system I can re-use for this for now (not the best but better than lame). Anyone give suggestions?
