Default Custom Home Theater Project in New Home, Opinions appreciated.

A Friend of mine has asked that I design the home theater for his new home being built this summer. I've got some fundamental ideas for what I'd like to incorporate into the project, but some third party ideas are always appreciated. The room is 17' wide and 25' deep, I've attached an image of the room and surrounding rooms. He wants to spend between $10,000 and $15,000 on audio/acoustics (speakers + absorption/diffusion, labor will be third party) and for it to be as discreet as possible, it's much more impressive when you're not expecting it

Given the storage space behind the wall (the screen wall i presume?) an IB subwoofer would be ideal and very stealthy and cost effective. Two manifolds of two 18s in each should have excellent response to 10hz and below.

You might want to look at my web site as there is a lot of information on this exact topic - some free, some not. Link below. My speakers are hidden, I always do this and there are right ways and wrong ways. Use my bed sheet screen for example.
