Suggestion : 2.1 / Tower speakers for 50" LED TV

Please suggest 2.1 or tower speakers for a new LED TV in a normal medium sized living room.

Why so specific?
- Cannot go for 5.1/4.1 etc since there is no convenient place to have rear surround speakers. Moreover, a small kid in the house who may spoil wires hanging around. ** Not sure if wireless surround speakers can be slotted to a wall mount without much damage (rented house).

- Budget is up to INR 10000, so a good tower speakers seem to be a distant dream. But also important to know that sound out will be from a Videocon LED TV. So speakers must be utilized to best with it.


What do I like?
- I like names of JBL, Harman, Sony, Creative etc. But open to suggestions.

- Good floor vibrating bass (to best extent in that range), deep crisp sound, tidy get up.

Where can I buy from?
- Open to both online, and stores in Bangalore.

Awaiting suggestions. Thanks in advance.

Enjoy~!

you just may get a pair of floorstanders within your budget. i had, 3 years back. but then, you would also need an amp to power them up, which will again set you back financially.
if you have someone at Hyderabad, or if you can somehow yourself go there and get speakers from there, this is a very good offer then:

Logitech z5500 5.1 computer speakers

i think i have interacted with that seller-member earlier once. don't worry about the deal being genuine or not. also, if you could install some casing-capping to conceal the speaker wires, it will look very good. any local electrician will be able to do it. wall-mounts can be had for 719/- a pair. the casing and the wall-mounts would require some drilling. when its time to leave the house for another one, you could buy a kg of white cement for 30 bucks, and fill in those holes, and when the cement dries, just give it a touch of matching paint; or if the walls are white, even a toothpaste would do! no need to apply a paint. simple! ;)

in your budget, a commercially-popular 2.1 or 5.1 system only is feasible. if somehow you could get those z5500d, then nothing like it!

P.S. - even tower speakers are not safe from children. a small cousin of mine enjoyed beating tabla on the drivers of my floorstanders, and slightly squelched one of them. if you get interested in getting the capping done, then let me know. i'll show you a couple of pics of how i've got them done.
