The actual tripod stands are made by Atlas.  They have a good wide base on them.  I have some stands made by peavey that have a much larger footprint so you may check into them.

The extensions are nothing more than 1.5" aluminum tubing that I purchased from someone on ebay.  Do a search for 1.5" aluminum tubing.  I think he is still selling it in 5' lengths.

Changed the PVC to aluminum using speaker stands and O-Clamps to hold them.  Looks more professional and is a LOT sturdier.

Can I ask where you purchased the tripods and extentions?  I want to use this setup on my 9X12 screen.  I can't seem to find a tall and wide enough tripod setup.  Can you give me some insite please..  Thanks Danoplex and movieman

So the pipes you have on the top are 1.5 aluminum tubing that are 5 foot lengths that you put together?  How has it held up?  not to much sag?  I am tring to find a 13 foot log piece and I found them online but the shipping is crazy!!.  I will look locally to see if anyone has that kind of length.  I am also tring to understand how you connected the virtical and horizontal pipes.  If you have time can you explain alittle.

Also your Bungie cords what length do you think is fine.  I just ordered 10 inch bungie cords and 12 inch velco straps so I am hoping this will do.  I guess I would just have to adjust my cross members accordingly.

So I have this comming in
Projector
Panasonic PT-AX200U WXGA (1280 x 720) LCD Home Theater Wide-screen Projector, 2000 ANSI Lumens

Screen
Carl's Place 12X9 Blackout Screen

Sound I will just do Stero Sound as of right now.

Starting small with hopes to move to sorround sound like you have.  Smiley

All my truss screen frame are light stand kits. Cross beams are either 5' or 6' sections (top and bottom) I ajust the up rights for the size of the screen and the bottom of the screen is 5' to 7' from the ground. Have used them for years. Love the set up.   rg

May I ask where you get them?  Most of the Truss systems I find would not fit the Light stand.  Would you mind posting a screenshot?  Thanks

So the pipes you have on the top are 1.5 aluminum tubing that are 5 foot lengths that you put together?  Yes.  How has it held up?  I used stage lighting O-Clamps.  not to much sag?  Some...but acceptable.  If you are using a lightweight screen material like trapeze or something similar you should be fine.  I use heavy canvas.  I am tring to find a 13 foot log piece and I found them online but the shipping is crazy!!. That is because of the length.  I got some other alum tubing with a 1 3/8" diameter and made kind of a fit together vacuum cleaner wand connector.  I will look locally to see if anyone has that kind of length.  I am also tring to understand how you connected the virtical and horizontal pipes.  If you have time can you explain alittle.  The verticle pipes just sit on the top of the speaker stand.  My stands are tapered from 1.5" to 1 3/8" on one end. 

Also your Bungie cords what length do you think is fine. I got mine at Lowes.  They are just a lightweight 10" bungee.  They work fine.  I just ordered 10 inch bungie cords and 12 inch velco straps so I am hoping this will do.  I guess I would just have to adjust my cross members accordingly.

So I have this comming in
Projector
Panasonic PT-AX200U WXGA (1280 x 720) LCD Home Theater Wide-screen Projector, 2000 ANSI Lumens  SWEET!

Screen
Carl's Place 12X9 Blackout Screen  This will be better than my heavy canvas.

Sound I will just do Stero Sound as of right now.
2 - B212A Behringer EUROLIVE B212A Powered Speaker 12" 2-way
1 - 502 Behringer XENYX 502 - 5 Input 2 Bus Audio Mixer  You should be thrilled with this sound system.  Bet you go 5.1 someday..lol

If you use the light truss stands with the cross beams it will come with all the fittings. The only thing you need to buy extra are more cross beams depending on the size of the screen. You can go up tp 20' x 11' with this set up.  rg
