I have a slight limitation when it comes to mounting my 4000 in the soon-to-be-finished basement theater room. I have a soffet that drops from the ceiling about 8 inches. I want to mount the projector as close to the soffet drop as possible to get the longest throw (and subsequent largest viewing) possible. The manual recommends having 19.75 inches of clearance around the projector. That would only give me about 10' of throw distance. I noticed that the back of the projector is actually the air input and not the exhaust, therefore can I cheat a little and drop that clearance to 8 inches or so? It's not really an enclosure; it's just a slightly lower segment of ceiling behind the projector. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
