You could try Spica TC-50s. They are inexpensive, light weight, and legendary in terms of sonics. Mounting them on a wall (preferably on a shelf) will not give the greatest imaging, but will improve their bass response. I have a pair that I wasn't using, and put them on the floor up against the wall (yes, smack in the corner of 1 wall and the floor)opposite the foot of my bed, and was astonished at how good they sound. While this setup provides only crude L-R imaging, there is a great sense of size and very natural, detailed sound. I remember hearing (I don't remember where) that some people mounted TC50s upside down at the junction of the wall and the ceiling with very good results. In terms of power, 20 watts should work if you don't expect too much in terms of volume. My first system consisted of the TC50s poweed by a Harmon Kardon HK380i reciever, which I think put out 30-35 watts/ channel, and I remember getting pretty loud in my small bedroom. They worked just fine with a 30 W Pass Aleph.
Try the Radio Shack Presidian - just $40/pr. They are rear ported, but you can plug the port or drill another at top or bottom. Can't lose at that price - and they'll probably go down in Radio Shack's 'spring sale'.
Or just find some decent computer speakers with subwoofer (I recommend Creative Inspire T3000 2.1 System)
