I don't think you need a specific type of speakers for Atmos unless you are going to get those modules that sit on top of regular speakers. I'm going to use a regular pair of in-wall speakers, but I have joists that I can reinforce with MDF and build a box around the speaker, just like you would do with in-wall speakers.
It should be a simple matter of driver-matching with your main speakers and surrounds. All of my speakers have 1" tweeters and 6.5" mids, so I'm choosing the same drivers in a MTM/D'Appolito array.
