Boston Acoustics SoundWare XS 5.1 Speaker System

Here's another solution for the space and budget conscious. 

The speakers themselves are a little unusual-looking; they're shaped like a polyhedron. Boston Acoustics states that this is to clean up the sound by reducing standing waves. Each polyhedron contains a 2.5-inch woofer and a 0.5-inch tweeter, and features a mounting bracket and weatherproof build.

The subwoofer has a 100W amp (200W peak) and an 8-inch graphite injected polymer woofer with an acoustically tuned port. It also packs Deep Channel Design - designing the magnetics of the motor structure to get the greatest woofer stroke. The company reckons that'll deliver more bass from less power.

 This product handles a wide range of sounds well.  Its compact design includes mounting kits to conveniently place the system out of sight minimizing its installation imposing on your living space.  In addition, its attractive finish will compliment any home as it comes in black and white.

The Boston Acoustics SoundWare XS system is an excellent buy for someone looking to just get it all at once and maintain quality sound for a reasonable price.

Included mounts are handy but never forget the value of a chair and the "right installer".
