It looks a little cramped up there so consider that..... Since the utility room is for all subsonic intents and purposes part of the Game area looks like your area is close to 20x20(square) which means youll have some serious room modes to deal with. I actually like the long rectangle dimensions of the room better if you could switch the game area over to the small side. If not maybe move TV and speakers away from front wall and spread the subs across front wall.
For current room config I would make the following recommendations.
- EQ mandatory
- Multiple subs mandatory
- Subs up front, is there room up there?
- 7' is close to screen, what size screen? Maybe move whole config back 2-3' and make room for subs
- Second row seating is dead center of room(null), maybe move back 2' or so and get out of center of room.

Yeah, I kind of figured with the back room being not sealed would eliminate the IB. Basically the list of stuff you suggest is what I figured I would need. I am still new to all of this tweaking stuff and will have to do some reading on it. Right now as it stands here is my equipment list.
Panny 50" plasma (G25)
Onkyo TX-NR1008 (9.2)
PS3 for games and BD's
Motorola FIOS cable box
(2) eD[c]12 for front left and right (need to try and find another for the center but at this point don't think that will happen with the state of eD right now)
Boston MCS100 satellite speakers for surrounds and heights (I know in the basement these will be too small). I planned on getting some eD[c]6 speakers for surrounds, but again probably not going to happen. Maybe some CHT or possibly Klipsch (IF I HAVE TO).
I do not really have pics of the actual room right now as it is really just a mess and filled with crap. Hopefully once I start the build I will start taking shots of progress and what not. Also, the subs that I plan on building I was hoping to use as stands for my eD speakers (unless that is not a good way of doing it), so optimally I would like to have the subs around 22" high that way with the eD's on there that would put the tweeter at about 42" (my ear height when sitting).
