Projector Expert Questions & AnswersQ:
In my home theater setup, my center channel speaker is located behind where I intend to place my screen. My question is, will the screen hinder my sound quality? If so, are there screens that are designed to allow sound through with a minimum of attenuation?

Dear Mr. Soundman,
To get the best results from your sound system, avoid placing the speaker behind your screen. If that is not an option, there are screens made specifically to allow sound through them.
A Draper screen called the AT1200 is a special woven fabric that is similar to high quality speaker grille cloth. This special screen material is similar in gain to standard matte white material. This acoustically transparent screen has also recently been made available in gray.
The AT1200 is available with many different mounting options.
