Reccomendations for 802D's?

I'm finally getting what has been my dream speaker. I never thought I'd own these but the time has come. I should have in the next month or so. I will be running the new mc2301 from Mcintosh (not released yet). Any reccomendations on placement of the 802D's. Also the Mcitosh can run at diferent ohms 2, 4, and 8 I think, so will either make a diference with the 802D. Other equipment will be C500C&T pre, MT10 TT, Classe A CDP202, and two MC2301 300 watt tube mono amps.

I have the N802's powered by Mac's MC402. I run the 8 ohm taps. I tried the 4 ohm briefly. If I recall correctly, the sound was tinny sounding. It was very obvious 8 ohms was the way to go.

In my 16 x 15 x 8 room, the backs are 3.5' from the wall and the outer sides 2.5' from the side walls.

Relax, have a Dogfish Head 90 minute IPA and listen to some Count Basie...
