Atmos Ceiling Speakers

I have a pair of in ceiling speakers and I'm interested to know where is the best position for them, to produce the best Atmos experience?

Above the front main speakers.

To the side of the MLP

To the rear of the MLP, in line with the rear surrounds perhaps.

The speakers are angled at 20 degees inside their enclosures.

In a two-speaker Atmos configuration, in line (left/right) with the mains, and front to back, over the listeners, or somewhat forward of the listeners. See this as an example:
