The shag actually helps break-up the bright images from the JVC Laser projector that shine off the floor surface and back to the screen.

Think of it this way as an example.
If a person had BRIGHT White carpet how it would act as a Reflective surface to feed-back to the screen.

Same-thing applies to the red carpet versus the Shag Deep-Black that doesn't feed-back to the screen.

Hope the above helps,
Terry
Aha, that makes sense! Thanks.

It's all about (Reducing) the reflection coming back to the screen from the floor.
Low Shag in Deep-Black greatly reduces that reflection but it does not totally eliminate it.

Post Another Up-Grade has just been completed today see below ....



Greetings,

Okay in preparation for the addition of ATMOS hopefully the 1st 1/4 of 2020.
I just had the Critec Surge Device installed this morning.
I already had the same Electrical Company install the 2 additional dedicated 20-Amp circuits in the H/T component nook.




I have also received the Lilah low-shag Deep-Black area rug and have UN-Folded it and laid it down length-wise to let it lay flat.
I don't have a time yet for that to be installed permanently by "Wolf-Hill-Technologies.
It might even be next year as they are covered-up with work this month.



Chad & Nathan came around 8 AM to do the install of the Critec Surge Device.
As always I do try to take pictures so you guys can get some idea of what's involved in doing this sort of thing.

Let's do the pictures and I'll type above each picture as needed to explain.































Chad is going to Move/Relocate those circuit breakers so he can place the New Critec Circuit Breakers all the way at the Top.





You can see from the Red Arrows a Blank Area to where the circuit breakers are being moved.













They are installing the Critec Surge Device Conduit through the top of the 200 Amp Service Box.






























As you can see it is installed and Powered-Up.










Terry
