How many power heads?

I need to get some more flow in my tank, and need to get some more power heads. Any suggestions?

I am thinking 2 on each side, 1 low and 1 high.

Right now I have 2 Hydor Koralia Nano 425, and those are not enough. Do you think I should get 2 more of those for the bottom, or do I need to get 4 new ones with higher flow? I don't mind spending the money so let me know, also not stuck on the Hydor brand.

Thanks

i know fluval has some filters that may work for what you are looking to do. they have a powerhead style outlet on the top and bottom and in between is a spray bar. i think you have the choice of using either or both powerheads, or the spray bar. i think that might be cheaper than purchasing multiple power heads.
