Thx...good to know for perspective as I consider what screen size to do in the near future. With an AT screen in my 20'x15x9' (LxWxD) HT room, and a screen approximately 3' from the front, I'd be looking at a similar 11' to 12' viewing distance while leaving sufficient room behind me for the side/rear surround separation. So my guesstimate of 100" to 105" seems right at about a 1.2-1.3 screen width.

You can go bigger if you like... Our AT screen is a 195" diagonal 2.4 aspect screen and we sit 12' from the screen. It is very immersive, and no eye strain at all. It all depends on where you like to sit in a theater. If you go AT screen...you could go full wall (like we did), and then see how big you like the screen. Once you decide what size you like matt it down to that size, and if you ever want to go bigger you don't have to buy a new screen. :)

Did you actually wind up using that full 195" diagonal (> 150" width)? How much got matted?

I was actually basing my seating distance on Nyal Mellor's article on viewing angles. The 1.2-1.3 width distance is fairly close to where we prefer to sit in a movie theater (roughly in the SMPTE reference space, about 1/2 way from the front +/- a row). However, I don't know how I'd feel the same way once we get 4K e-shift and UHD dialed in, but I'd probably be more conservative about screen size rather than being in the "go big or go home" group like Brian. My wife is less sensitive to big screen effect than me for some reason, and don't think our kids care either way.

Yup, if you look at my thread it is the full 195" diagonal...not matted at all, just about a 3-4" velvet boarder around to conceal the aluminum frame. I don't plan on ever buying another screen unless i move to another house and get a bigger room.

Great job in a relatively small space. Those dark room colors and the low gain spandex screen must really take full advantage of JVC's contrast.
I have a similar sized room to yours but set it up in the opposite orientation. Have been seriously considering turning it 90 degrees for two reasons: 1) Longer projector throw distance & 2) To gain some distance to the rear surrounds.
I am concerned though that having only 11' of width will bring the side surrounds too close to the seating area.

Are your side surrounds located in line with your seating?
How high are they mounted on the wall?
Do you find Atmos adds much to the surround experience?
With less than 8 feet of headroom, do you find the Atmos speakers draw too much attention to themselves?

Thank you! yes black levels are off the charts:)

my surrounds are about 45" from ground to driver...at about 92 degrees (guestimate) to the seating row

I found atmos from the beginning (I literally expanded the week it was released in new AVR's about 3 years ago) was an AWESOME addition...I never feel the speakers are apparant...just a nice sound bubble....see I feel the opposite was true when I saw ATMOS in a theater with 25' ceilings....with the "fold" atmos tailer (which i can directly compare to my setup with the demo disc) attention was really drawn to speakers on the cieling in the theater...as opposed to just another layer of sound in mine...

thanks again...and have fun...any other questions fire away

Thanks for the response. It is encouraging to read how happy you are with the setup. I imagine the Volts and their coaxial design help to bring everything together.
When you say 92 degrees, do you mean just slightly ahead of the seating or slightly behind?

I do think the coaxial design helps in the short distances
And by 92 degrees. They are ever so slightly behind the mlp

Yes again I absolutely LOVE my setup  it's been tr way it is for about a year now and I still get excited to go down nightly to watch a movie :)

That was 2 1/2 years of switching in and out components and not worrying about crossing wires. Yikes.
