Getting started–what you’ll need for your home theater projector set up
Before you get started, you’re going to need a projector. I know it sounds pretty obvious, but choosing a projector is the first step in the process.
Once you have your hardware picked out, you’ll only need a few hand tools to get your home theater projector set up. At the minimum, you’ll probably need:
- A screwdriver
- Adjustable wrench
Also, be sure to check the instructions for your projector and mount for the manufacturer’s requirements.
Where to put the most important piece–the screen
Once you’ve picked a projector, it’s time to find a good place for the screen.
There are obviously some size considerations to take into account when selecting a location for a projector screen. It’s not quite as easy as picking a spot for your TV.
Most rooms are only going to provide you with one or two walls suitable for screen placement, so picking a wall is probably not a tough choice. But if you can, try to avoid a wall with a lot of direct light, as the light could wash out your picture.
One element you do need to consider is how far up the wall should you place the screen. Somewhere between 24 and 36 inches from the floor is typically a good distance. The installation instructions for your screen may also provide placement guidelines.
