Acoustically transparent projector screen recommendation

I recently upgraded my LCR monitors from Dynaudio BM15as in the near field to JBL M2s. The left and right currently flank the 110" diagonal projector screen, but I had to raise the screen to fit the center channel below it. I'm looking for advice regarding an acoustically transparent screen of the same size to put the center speaker behind so I can lower it back down to where it doesn't hurt my neck and the sound comes from the image rather than below it. Mix position in 11' from the front of the screen. There is sufficient room behind it to place the speaker.

The home theater boards seem to all favor woven vs perforated screen material, but most of the comments on those sites justify the preference based on picture quality. I want whatever sounds best. Anyone have a suggestion?

Thanks-

Woven for sure!
Perforated works less horribly on a big screen but in a smaller room it is awful. Do don’t even think about it.
Changing from perforated to woven made our JBLs go from pretty darn good to pretty darn great.

You can't use a perf screen at 11'. You'll see the perfs. Woven is the only way.

a Woven acoustically transparent screen will both look and sound better.
