    Hi everyone,
    I'm hoping somebody can advise me on the use of a domino 18, the more I look at various projectors the better this one looks although I've not managed to actually see one as yet.
    Anyhow the question is this; when my garage conversion is done I'll have a room of 15.5 x 16.5 ft and would like to end up with an image size of 92'' diagonal. screen will be a fixed frame type and the pj can be either wall or ceiling mounted.
    Will the domino 18 allow me to do this without excessive use of zoom? I've heard that it's a long throw device but I can't find exact details anywhere and there doesn't seem to be a throw calculator a la projector central.
    Any info would be gratefully received, thanks in advance
    Stu.

    Hi Stu,

    The domino 18 has a throw ratio of 2.3 to 3.1 times screen wide.

    So, a 92" diagonal screen (16:9 ) is about 80" wide. You would need to have between 15'4" and 20'8" distance from screen to lens of projector.

    You should be okay, so long as you use the longer distance ( 16.5 ft ) in your garage .

    I'd go for ceiling mount.

    Best Regards,

    Stan.

    Stu,

    Stan's figures are good. You will just squeeze in a 45x80 frame screen into your new room.

    I would recommend wall mounting the projector as you will get the maximum throw and it will be easier to run cables and you will save the price of a ceiling mount.

    Here's a link to the Sim2 w/s
