    Hi everyone,


    what, in your opinion, would be a good, or ideal size for a P10 matrix


    Considering issues such as size, weight, cost, power requirements, storage, transport, video scaling etc.


    is there a sweet spot that gives the best bang for buck ?


    Cheers Fing

    I just did a 5 x 5 and wish I had of gone a min 7x7. Mainly due to the distance from the house to the street. The ratio doesn't seem to bad. I think the max is 8x8 purely because of the BBB doing 8 per output sub board (forgot it's name)

    i have a 2x5 as my house is fairly close to the street, not sure how good it will look yet but i suspect its going to be fine.

    Most acrylic material used for the front of enclosures is not available in a size that will cover an 8x8. There are other options (I hear clear plastic tablecloth is popular); but just make sure you keep that in mind.
