75g powerhead/water flow configurations?

I have a standard 75g mixed tank with a couple clowns, softies, lps, and a monti. I've been playing with flow but can't get it "how I like" I guess you could say. I have a wp-25 facing direct from right to left side on w-1, s-1, and it's making a good wave. I also have a koralia 1400 that I took out, and my return is a Jaebo dc3000 (800gph running at about 85% so ~680gph). So all I have going is my wp25 and return. How do you have your 75g setup up and would you mind posting an image or drawing of your flow setup? Thanks!

Would you recommend running that pump alone like I am or should I have other powerheads going? I've tried else mode. Doesn't make a wave like w-1 does.

Having 2 opposing pumps of the same kind is best.
W1 makes a nice wave but does not circulate nearly as much water.
Preventing dead spots is the goal of powerheads.
