Home Theater Projector Setup – Everything You Need To Know About Projector Installation

Home Theater Projector Setup –  Everything You Need To Know About Projector Installation

This is a guide for buying and installing a home theater projector. This video covers everything from planning, measuring, building, purchasing, and installing a home theater projector. Now that home theater projectors are more inexpensive than ever, it’s a great time to build your own home theater. Even 4K home theater projectors are affordable now, allowing most people to enjoy a big screen that looks better than most movie theater screens. This guide can be used as a way to determine the best home theater system for your space. Please be sure to post any questions in the comment section as I try to respond to as many questions as I can.

Here are my top projector picks for December 2017:

Best Budget 4K Projector
Optoma UHD60:
Epson 5040UB (1080p /w 4k Enhancement):

    I have high ceiling in my basement (9'). I manage to have a diagonal of 221" against the wall with my epson hc1060. I can place the sofa at 12 1/2' or 16' from the wall. I don't use it that much neither that often. I have to admit it is pretty big; only maybe 3 people out of 15 think the screen is too big for the distance, but for me it is ok I don't know 🤷🏽‍♂️

    I bought the Optoma UHD65. I have already replaced the bulb and every now and then when watching a movie, the bulb will shut off even though the projector is still powered. I bought an Optoma bulb, not a cheap knock off, is there a fix for this.

    On elite screens website. What projector or projectors do you recommend. My wall and room is very big roughly 2000 sq feet. And also where do I get the led light behind your screen that matches the color on your display.
