    Build Your Own Ht 100"+ Projector For Cheap

    so - i read about this for weeks and weeks. and it seems quite easy, and theres LOTS of help when you do it.

    http://www.lumenlab.com/ <- where to buy the kit and plans.



    http://www.lumenlab.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=4651

    [lots of big pics]

    [good worklog]
    http://www.lumenlab.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=1618

    when you buy the plans\pieces, they give you acess to their help forum, and tons of customer service. i just havnt gotten myself around to building one yet. the only part you need to get yourself is the LCD monitor (and a small one can be had quite cheap now'adays)

    i dont know if you wanna sticky this- but it might bring a whole new thing to some of your garage and spare MDF. i wanna start building one after i get my car done.

    You wouldn't say that if you used a projector to any great extent. I'll never own a standard TV ever again, atleast not for my main tv.

    And about you eye's getting messed up from watching it big, I don't know WTF you guys are talking about. We have one of mine set up at 126" and it doesn't bother any of us at all.



    Caraudio.com - Where the average member couldn't wire a SPST toggle if they had to.


    More proof.

    No, Andy, I'm sure the context is fine.

    All the way in the back!

    If you stand up and block my view, you will be in pain via rott iron chair beemed across the room @ your head. If I miss, I have 4 more tries If I miss those consider yourself lucky until you return! Seriosly, don't block my view. Ask anyone in my family and friends - they know
