Powerhead placement 54 corner

Want to know where I should place my powerheads (hydor 850 and 750) for optimal water flow. Hopefully the picture helps you see how my liverock is setup but you may have to zoom in alittle(there is some space behind the rock). I also purchased a hydor wave control and was wondering what intervals are most natural. Any input is greatly appreciated. Click image for larger version

Ok so you're suggesting one lower left corner and the other higher in right corner?

I think I'm going to keep 850 in same spot and then put 750 bottom. I want to try to bounce 750 off of glass and thru rocks.

Any suggestions for intervals or is it just a preference?

I posted this thread awhile ago but was recently playing around with my hydor 850 powerheads. I had them alternating every 3 hours so only one was on at a time. The past day I put them both on. What do you guys think about have two 850's going in a 54 corner? Is that a good amount of flow? Should I go back to the alternating every 3 hours? I attached a picture of where I have them placed. Keep in mine I have a fluval 406 canister filter that puts out some good flow too. Any ideas or thoughts are greatly appreciated.
