Question Atmos ceiling bookshelf speaker placement question - How close to a wall?

Here's a picture of the potential placement;

My couch is pretty close to the back wall; when sitting my head is less then 2ft away.
In the scenario in the picture, the bookshelf speaker would be mounted to be angled down 45° towards the center of the room. 4 such speakers would be installed, 2 on each side of the room.

However how far away to that back wall does it need to be? The specs of the klipsch bookshelves I'm looking at say the horn layout is 90°x90° so can we safely assume that half the sound waves will just bounce back toward the same position as the ones unobstructed by the wall? Or will this create some really weird sound wave collisions and should be avoided at all costs?

Thank you,
