Question Canister outflow placement

Folks, I have 125 gal tank, till date I always used Spray bar and power head, but recently I change out flow to this

Running 2 Canister filter...on each end of the tank..this is 6 footer long..

How do you think should I place the outflow to get good circulation all over the tank..?

You can hang them on both ends of the tank and point one towards the opposite wall and pointed downwards and the other pointed back towards the other wall and pointed horizontal so there's a 2 way flow and its hitting the bottom and top of your tank.

If this doesn't make sense I can make a diagram. When I had a big tank and ran 2 canisters this is how I did it. There was no need for a power head because everything was gently being moved.
