Mine are both at right angles to the tank coil and they are about 6 
inches apart.  They are not at right angles to each other though.  They 
both run the same direction.  One is mounted a little higher than the 
other.  So far no problems, but then again, my amp isn't fully up and 
running either!  :-)
