      Hello Ahtishamul,
      You can choose speakers from either Polk signature series or Elac Debut series.They both have very good sound quality and offer very good value. You can choose floor standing for the mains, a matching center speaker, bookshelf for the surrounds and a subwoofer. If you want something extra in terms of bass you can pick a SVS PB2000 subwoofer.
