Hi all. I'm building a new home with a basement and wanted to prepare for a home theater. I was hoping to get some recommendations on the layout. We're only planning on finishing the rec room and doing everything in there. We do have the option of finishing a media room also though if we don't think the rec room will suffice.

Here's the equipment I currently have:

Sharp 70" LED (may go with a projector if recommended)
Klipsch RF-52 II (front)
Klipsch RC-52 II (center)
HTD surround speakers
Outlaw LFM-1 EX
Pioneer Elite VSX-33
15 TB Unraid Server (Bluray Rips)
Gaming PC
PS3
Mede8er MED600X3D

I did a quick mock-up but wanted to see what the experts had to say as far as the positioning goes. The equipment in the photo is drawn to scale. Once the layout is set, what should I look to have done during construction?

Thanks!

Layout looks good, hard to tell from just the one pic. Is the storage room developable space? Location of teleposts? Bath is already roughed in? What height is your ceiling, etc.

Yes the other storage rooms could be developed but we're hoping to save the cash. They haven't started building yet so everything is up in the air still. A powder room is in the plans right now. I'll have to check on ceiling height. I know there's a step in the ceiling. I'll try to get more details...
