Check out this bookshelf speaker shootout. Most of them are still available new and all should be available used. I bought a pair of the Yamaha NS-6490 3 way speakers based off that shootout and have been quite happy with the results I get. I use them in the garage without a sub. Any of those speakers should work well for you.
