I guess the required questions are, what is you budget, what were your subwoofer thoughts, and now far is your seating from the speakers?
Since you have a couple 2000 dollar receiver, conventional wisdom is you spend 2-3 times the cost of your AV R on Speaker/sub- so let say a budget of 5000. Since you already have your L/C/R, let assume a 2-3000 dollar budget for the rest.
Good subs don't come cheap- Maybe two SB2000 subs, those will be 800/per or two Outlaw Ultras X12 for 1,198 for the two. Rythmic, HSU, PSA also make good subs that don't break the bank...
For side surround, sounds like you either need a narrow speaker or "in walls". I don't have much experience with either, so I will let others comment.
