Welcome to the build stage! It's exciting and draining at the same time. I am sure you are worn out a little bit with all that work you have done! Demo and clean up goes totally unappreciated.
Your framing of the new door looks much better than the framing of the closet you tore down. A pet peeve of mine is i have seen several times of the jack-stud not continued from the top of the header to the plate. The only thing that I would suggest would be to add a couple of horizontal studs between your king stud and the next one over, maybe were some hinges maybe located. Since you are going with dual doors, you may end up wanting to make them doors heavy for the mass of sound absorption, and it pays to have the door framing beefed up like you did with the double jacks. Other than that..looks good.
Sincha's going to be doing electrical anyway, utilize the 2 existing circuits that are already in the room as room power only and lights. This would be for lights, the vacuum, and power recliners, and charging of your Tablet for system control. Basically all the accessories you want in room, but not the equipment. If you plug a sub-woofer into these circuits with lights or accessories, you may end up with a aggravating hum in your sub that you won't be able to get rid of, (aka ground loop).
To avoid this, utilize those other 2 slots in the service panel and run 12 gauge romex for them, ( 20 amp capable) .
Install one of them dedicated to equipment location.
Install the other one to the front of the room for sub-woofer power only. Extend that sub-woofer circuit to other locations, based on your layout, of where you would potentially want additional sub-woofers. 2, 3 or even 4 sub's now days is not uncommon at all.
Everyone always likes photos. Keep 'em coming. As the saying goes, a it's worth about a 1000 words.
Good luck! Remember, "It's gotta get worse before it gets better."
