Spray bars and circulation

Hi

I'm getting ready to plumb my 40B. I plan on going with a spray bar pointed down and out. For circulation would I be better going side to side or front to back? Here's a quick diagram, arrows indicate spray bar water direction. The black square is the water intake. It would be one or the other as far as spray bar location. The diagram is looking from the top.

i would go side to side, parallel with surface or angled slightly up, with intake on the same side.
