Default Bleeder Resistor Placement

I am working on a CLCRC power supply for a line stage. Should I place bleeder resistors on each cap, or is there an optimal place to simply use one? Also, how does one figure the optimal resistor size?

I personally put a 390K on each cap in the PS. There are more intricate ways to do this, but for me this works fine...

Dont take life too seriously, you will never get out alive!

With every a bleeder on every cap, should an open occur, all caps would have a bleeder.
Be sure your foil hat has a good low impedance ground.
