That depends upon what you're looking to achieve. Dual 1200's - when positioned correctly - will smooth out room modes, making the output more consistent over a larger area. They would potentially...

The PSA speakers are being sent by the Reaction Audio guy? I'm sure Jeremy and Tom V are gonna get a kick out of that, especially now that they've become friends... :p

You listed the square feet, but what we actually need is the cubic feet (HxWxD) in order to provide suggestions. For example, 800 SQ in a space with 8' ceilings equates to 6400 CF. That's a huge...

The consensus, for most subs, is to start at 12 o'clock and adjust according to taste, so that might be the best approach given your circumstances.
