In my opinion, 4" off the floor is too low:rvs007 said:Seating area will likely be 12' from the screen wall.
According to the distance caculator on Optoma's website, I can achieve a 130" image dialgonal if I mount it at 15'-5" from the screen. ... Based on this, the image will be 4" off the floor ...
- It will cause you to have to look down, rather than straight ahead.
- You won't have room for a center channel speaker. (The bottom of my screen is ~24" off the floor.)
Also, keep in mind that 12' from 130" means that DVD-quality video or poorer is going to look like crap. I sit 13' from my screen and, while DVD-quality video is fine, I wouldn't want to be sitting any closer.
