    Important: Head Positions on your ALP Install.

    When installing a dual system you do not want to place the heads too far apart from each other (For example under each headlight) that is too far apart for sensors in a dual install. If you do a Triple install and have one under each headlight but also place one head dead center that configuration will work fine. Just realize its important that heads be installed in order when doing a Triple front install. (F1, F2 & F3) and the F2 head needs to be in the center position. Its best to also post photo's of your install and we will mark out suggestions for optimal placement. You can post your photo's in the ADVICE ON PLACEMENT thread. Its also a good idea to preview others installs before you install your own.

    Before looking at an Escort Radar Detector you should really check out Uniden Detectors.. Uniden R1 & R3 are the best performing radar detectors for the money.

    Heads are small.. Moving the Bubbles only moves the receive or transmit less than 1" either way. That small difference really will not make any difference.

    What is the optimal spacing for ALP? In inches or cm.

    and what have you found to be the threshold for what's "too far away" and what's "sufficiently close" enough to work with just two heads?

    I know the rule of thumb used to be 18", but the ALP's are more sensitive and it looks like we can get away with farther spacing.

    Every car is different and its best to post a photo and have us make some recommendations. As a rule I would not space them over 24" apart from each other.

    Are those ALF CS56's actually functional/reliable CM's?
    If so What will/won't they jam?

    Just curious as I am married to my ALPS, but may VW EOS allows me to date a rental car every so often when away on business

    Screw this LOL stuff. If they don't find it humorous on their own, then let 'em take it seriously.
