Atmos speaker placement

I'm getting ready to install the atmos speakers in my media/home theater room. These are SVS Prime Elevations, which I will be installing on the ceiling. I have some constraints on front two height speakers (I cannot push them forward). The back tow atmos speakers can go all the way to the back wall. The question is - how far back should they be? The front atmos channel is about 2 feet in front of the MLP. Should I aim them at the MLP or can the project to at the right angle to the walls? I would rather not angle them them - strictly for aesthetic reasons. The ceiling height is 8.5 feet.

Elevation speakers on the diagram are in orange.

For a 5.1.4 or 7.1.4 set-up, go here and for the Dolby recommendation on ceiling speaker placement. It's rare to have the ability to mount them exactly where Dolby recommends due to physical constraints - but get as close as you can.
