ATMOS speakers

About to install a 7.2.4 layout. I got a pair of 90-RTs and a pair of 70-RTs for a great deal, so that is what I'm using for the ATMOS speakers. My question is, which should I put in front and which in rear? My first thought was to put the 90s in front, but, then, I thought maybe rear would need more bass support. The rest of the system consists of RTi-a7s and CSi-A6 up front, RTi-A3s for surround and RCi55s for back and two PSW 505s. Marantz AV7702 MKII and Rotel RMB-1075 and RMB-1066.

    During setup set all speakers to small then set the crossover to 80hz. doing this it won't matter which are in front or rear. Then save some $$$$ for a real sub. SVS or HSU will be a lot better than a pair of 505's.
    When I was a kid my parents told me to turn it down. Now I'm an adult and my kids tell me to turn it down.

    I'm more concerned about the bass frequencies whose source can be identified (80-250Hz) and not sub-bass. I've decided to put the 90s in front since front sound is more discernable than rear. If there is a noticeable deficiency in the back, I'll just get a couple more 90s. (I won't be able to swap them because of mounting hole size difference)
