Minimum room size for Dolby Atmos

Hi guys, I have been trying to find more info about minimum room size for Dolby Atmos(likely configuration will be 5.1.2), I would like to know if a room size of 4x3m(13'x10') will be fine or I should not bother. I plan to put a projector inside that room too. Thank you guys.

Small point sources will be better - see the Anthony Gallo speakers. Big floorstanders are a very bad idea.

Use the Search Button and Read the Stickies!

My atmos setup works in a 2.5m x 2.7m area.

Like Pete says, look for small speakers. I'm using Polk Audio TL1600 speakers with a Starke SW12 sub. Front Atmos enabled speakers for the .2

bookshelf speakers are enough. no floorstanding.
And to future proof, try to get avr that can do 5.1.4, as once you go atmos, its abit hard to stick to 5.1.2, you will wanna go 5.1.4.
