The book I'd suggest is Sound Studio Construction on a Budget by Alton Everest.
The make/model of the speakers you select will have many impacts (of all the things that make a difference in the reproduction chain ... first is the room, second are the speakers).
The first impact is based upon the orientation and physical dimensions of the speakers where orientation means the direction of the drivers (DSP6000 have side firing woofers, for example). The physical dimensions will speak to the ease (or lack thereof) of installing the speakers in an asthetic way. Asthetic may mean fitting in with your room decor and furniture placement or it may mean hidding them out of site.
The second impact relates to the dispersion characteristics of the speaker itself. Center channel speakers (non-THX) are famous for lobing, or comb-filter effects. That aside, knowing the dispersion characteristics will begin to resolve the issue of what type of treatments may, or may not, be needed on the ceiling, floor, or that acoustically ugly glass coffee table in front of your primary seating position. For a THX speaker, you have a real clear picture of how the thing will behave. For other speakers (be they better, equal or worse), these characteristics either need be measured or gleened from reviews where these characteristics were measured.
