    Fixed frame with woven acoustically transparent white screen material. 115" diameter with a 2.35 aspect ratio. 4" black velvet contoured border and spring tensioned with support bars to keep the material evenly stretched out. Approximately 1.1 gain with about a -2dBi attenuation across the frequency range and no combing. The frame is solid and the thick border adds to the perceived contrast ratio. I can't see any visible colour shift and the surface is nice and taught with no wrinkles or creases.

    I purchased this screen new from AV Online and has been used to watch 3 films before it went staright back in the original box. It is currently still boxed in immaculate condition with all accessories, fixtures, fittings and original packaging. Environment is clean and smoke free.

    I am extremely impressed with the quality of this screen which IMO is as good as those several times its price. I am only selling as I was so impressed and the gain was better than expected compared to a white wall that I upgraded to a 125" curved Spitfre screen.

    I was projecting with an old InFocus SP8602 1080p DLP and the image was fantastic but am currently using an Epson TW9300 on the bigger screen and the combination works great. The screen is sharp with no visible artefacts, such as moiré or hot-spotting, and the image is even and bright.

    The speakers are Meridian 5200SE and aside from a slight increase in calibrated volume levels of about 2dB perform like there is no screen at all. I would even venture to say perhaps slightly better integrated with a more even sound stage. I would not hesitate to buy one again and so I did but just a little bigger!

    Hi,

    I will confirm the exact measurements this weekend but I doubt that it will fit in any car that I know of. From memory the external dimensions of the box are a little over 30cm wide and high with a length of just under 300cm.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the measurements. I've got a Nissan xtrail plus a roof rack so will check the max I can go when my wife gets back. Not keen on the roof rack idea so let's hope I can squeeze it in.

    Have just measured my car and it's too close to call if it will fit or not but there's always the roof rack.
    I can offer £230 to pick if that's any good for you

    I will meet you in the middle at £322.50 if you can collect this weekend. Just let me confirm the exact box dimensions later on this afternoon before we agree anything.

    Thanks for the dimensions.
    The earliest I can get to you is the following w/end but if that's ok with you I'm happy with £322.50.
