Dolby Atmos Ceiling Speaker Connection Help

Hello. Got some questions about connecting 4 speakers on top of the ceiling for Dolby Atmos. On the back of the Pioneer receiver, am I suppose to connect the 4 ceiling speakers to these terminals:

Here is the picture of ceiling speakers that I am trying to do:

I have a 5.2.4 speaker setup. So by looking at the back of the receiver, I should connect the 2 front top ceiling speakers to FRONT WIDE /B and connect the 2 back ceiling speakers to TOP MIDDLE?

Each ceiling speaker is above the main speaker as shown with 2nd picture.

Thanks for any help!

Nope. You're looking at the wrong image. Your configuration uses Top Forward and Top Backward speakers (ie. not Top Middle which are normally placed just forward of the couch) so you want to refer to p. 28 in the Owner's manual which indicates only Top Middle speakers are connected to the Top Middle speaker posts as well as the following:

Top Forward -- connect to Surround Back

Top Backward -- connect to Front Wide
