I'm looking into mounting a motorized projector screen in my home theater room. I measured that the screen needs to be approximately 120" diagonal, so I'm looking into buying one of:
- Elite Screens Spectrum Electric Budget Projection Screen
- FAVI 16:9/120-Inch Electric Projector Screen (HD-120)
The problem is that I cannot mount the screen flush with the wall. This is because the screen will be above my fireplace and due to the height of the picture, it'll need to come down in front of the mantle and cannot sit on top of the mantle. In other words, the screen will need to descend approximately 8" off the wall.
Does anyone have any experience doing something like that, or any advice on how I could go about accomplishing it?
Judging from the specs the screen would weigh approximately 30 lbs, and since the chimney and flue is behind it, I would be nervous to try supporting the screen from the middle of its base, and ideally would only want to put supports from the sides.
Finally, the ceiling for the room is high and vaulted, so I'm not sure if it would be possible to mount the screen from the ceiling (nor do I have any experience on how to do that).
