Do you have any recommendations for a sound system / speaker layout that will get good sound to my ears, but not to my downstairs neighbor?

I just moved above a middle-aged tenant. I want to be respectful, but would also like good surround sound for movies and music. I have shag carpet, if that makes a difference.
How do you minimize sound in this situation? Are there specific brands of sound systems specifically designed for this? Would mounting speakers make things better or worse? Does elevating the sub-woofer help? Are there any products or methods for sound-proofing the floor?
Just FYI, I plan on introducing myself to him and opening a dialog about the noise, too. I view this as a crucial step.
