With space being an issue, my best option other than a sub/sat system looks to be buying some nice bookshelf speakers and placing them on the floor. Is this going to kill the sound tremendously?

Every bookshelf speaker I have heard that is on the floor sounds terrible.
The bass is boomy and the treble is very weak.

Thanks for the info guys.
I can put the speakers on stands, but I'll only be lifting them up off the floor about 12" I'll have to custon make some 12" stands. Would 12" inches be enough?
As an FYI the problem I am facing is once I get above 24" the speakers will start blocking the sides of the TV. The Paradigm towers I am looking at tonight will work...but I just wanted a few options in case I don't care for thier sound.
