SC-1222k is a 7.2 receiver, In case you could place your front Klipschs on the top, then a top front left and right configuration would be the best since this way you gain z control of your sound field, in fact 9.x and 11.x configurations offers even better z axis control of the sound field. Another good configuration for you, in case you could not place the top front, is to use the front Klipschs as front wide left and right. The third option would be using them as left and right surround and use the current surrounds as surround back. These three configurations that I recommend to you are, being the first one the best:
Front height setting: SL, FHL FL, SW1, C, SW2, FR, FHR, SR
Front wide setting: SL, FWL FL, SW1, C, SW2, FR, FWR, SR
7.2 surround setting: SBL, SL FL, SW1, C, SW2, FR, SR, SBR
You can forget SW2 since you do not have a second subwoofer yet. The wiring configuration of each option is in page 21 of the SC-1222k user manual. You just have to tell the receiver what configuration you are using and the Advanced MCACC does the rest. After that you can enjoy your new awesome configuration. Remember that the first one is the only one able to provide you with a real 3D sound field, the biggest benefit of a 7.x system over a 5.x system.
