Atmos placement and speakers choice?

I was wondering if it’s a better idea to use satellite speakers on stands or said bookshelf speakers on top my tower speakers and use them as Atmos?

Either way let me locate in the middle of the room on sidewalls. Using a 7.2 channel amp so only two Atmos speakers can be used.
Jamo satellite person vs Insignia bookshelf speaker .

Not sure why my pictures are showing sideways..
Can always get on wall speakers later on if it works or some type of mount maybe but for now it beats nothing..
I also have bipolar like Klipch surrounds speakers if those would be better for this , but there bigger and less bass . Not sure there’s over brightness would help though..
Satellites would be closer to the ceiling by a little bit but the insignia seem better .

No, not worth it
Already turned those channels off , didn’t seem worth it . Probably need in ceiling for a room like this . And that’s a no go !! Sadly

Yeah then better off just using the best extra 5 speakers I have , I eventually want a way better center this Sony thing is trash !! Gotta put it on +8 db .. clear but ehh not very good Was only $10 or $20.

maybe use towers as fronts and something else as surrounds?

Could try 3 speakers also , but less sound formats available so ehhh .. probably try it anyways. Probably need actual proper Atmos speakers to be worth it . Such a small room 12x12 isn’t easy to fill with sound .

Why won’t it let me rotate the images they keep showing up sideways??
I figured out in better off using the most fronts without surrounds if I wanna add surrounds later I can have them later. I should probably give three channel I’ll try for at least a month or two.
I have two types of stands , pioneer towers too short to sit directly on the floor, Tweeter level will be too low.
Sounds fine to me with just 3, less sonic overkill.
