My question is this; can I do a quality job in a room that's only 12x15ft.
The bulk of the builds I have seen are about twice the size of this room.
I want to use the room for movies,music & playing Rock Band with friends who come over.
Also would like to use it for playing my bass.
I attached a pdf of the layout.

My dedicated, treated room is just about 10.5ft x 10ft and I love it. Only room for two seats but that's fine here. In that room I have 3 x M&K S150s for LCR channels, 2 x M&K SS150 Tripoles for surrounds, 2 x M&K LCR55s for Height channels and not one but TWO Seaton Submersive subs! I project onto a 92 inch diagonal screen which, from a seating distance of less than 9 ft is fine. I was fearful at the outset that really good sound in such as small room would not be possible, but nothing is further from the truth. With the help of REW + Calibrated measurement mic, Audyssey Pro, lots of GIK treatment panels and great advice from AVS members, I have managed to get a sound quality that never ceases to delight me. My current FR graph is below.
So my answer to you would be: go for it! Your room is way bigger than mine - I'd love a room 12x15. I would then be able to accommodate rear surrounds which really are impossible here.
With careful attention to everything you will make a terrific HT there! Good luck with it.
