Im thinking of going to a full kit screen rather than making one, im just waiting to hear back from a local company here on the following 2 screens:

110"

120"
http://clefhifi.com.au/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=45&products_id=812

I wont be paying those prices, cause they seem abit rich to me.

The material used in these LP Morgan screens is the Novares, which is apparently now ISF certified.

The size of my room is 3.45 meters wide by 6 meters deep, 2.7 meter ceiling
( 11.32' x 19.7' x 8.9' )

I sit in the lounge with my eyes about 4 meters ( 13' ) back from the screen.

The current screen painted on the wall is about 5:4 aspect and is 2.27 meters wide ( 7.45' )



With all that info given, what size does everyone here recommend I go for out of the 110" and the 120" ( both are 16:9 ) Projector will be the CineMAX.

I'll help you out with the little I know. I have a 2,35:1 screen though, 108 inch, and 100 inch wide (screen material). Screen - eyes are 313 cm. At that distance It's perfect for my eyes, and had I gone wider It would have been to eye-straining. But going just a bit longer, 370 cm and further back, I could easily fitted a 114 inch screen, witch was the only other option that fit the bill I was aiming for.

So I'm thinking you should get the 120 inch version and be happy with it. I hope more jump in here and give you more details.. And also, beforehand I tejped up a fejk screen and came to that conclusion. It's worth the effort. I had it like that for weeks whilst saving up for it. Both 108 and 114 inch at the same time. When the screen got here It was perfect.

EDIT: Found a great comparison site that shows it really well. Try any combination you like. Smile
