When deploying the 2702 and 571 APs, what is the suggested distance between them for maximum coverage?

Keep in mind increasing coverage does not help unless your clients can communicate  back with that AP. So AP power level should be match to client capability (~ 11dBm)

consider this when placing APs.

It is recommended that you space each AP apart by approximately 6 Ft (2 meters). Avoid clustering the APs or the antennas from different APs together because this could cause degradation in performance. This recommended distance is based on the assumption that both devices operate in the unlicensed band and do not transmit RF energy more than 23 dB–that is, 200 mW. If higher power is used, space the APs farther apart.
