You've got a very difficult room, and your main problem is the ceiling height. 6.5' is pretty low and the duct creates additional problems. A drop sheet rock ceiling is not the way to go here, you'll get too many reflections, at least the open rafters will breakup the sound but you have to deal with the duct. Different types/quantities of insulation affect the sound differently, you'll only know what works after you've installed the system so you can monitor the effects of insulation.
You probably would need to put carpeting on the floor but I wouldn't touch the walls until later, depending on your speakers and the overall balance of the room the concrete walls could even be a good thing. There are many ways to break up sound waves and deal with echo and slap echo. Again the only way to know for sure is only after your system is up and running and all your furniture is in place. You have to hear the problems first.
