    Here is definition of “valid” according to Webster’s.

    : well-grounded or justifiable : being at once relevant and meaningful
    • a validtheory
    b : logically correct
    • a valid argument
    • valid inference
    l just meant it was valid in that it was a useful, meaningful test. It depends on the context you are looking at it from.

    It is a relevant test in that it shows a useful test for a situation such as this (behind something)

    Why would you seem to try and make it seem as tho l meant anything different than this ? This kind of stuff actually bugs me. It’s like we have to get a debate started about everything. Relax.

    Not sure where the personal feelings come in? The test is not valid in the context of showing the capabilities of the detectors. It is only "valid" the way you're using that term inasmuch as it's helpful to show how variables like putting the antenna behind honeycomb/mesh will invalidate results.

    I like the test. I’ve often wonder what if????
    Keep testing Patton. Like to see the difference, if any, the placement makes.
    It’s all good data no matter what.

    Regardless of the bad install there are several courses which due to foliage, hills, curves, terrain, etc. will always have good and cheap detectors alerting at the same spot. It takes multiple tests with different scenarios and courses to help clear the difference between most detectors.

    Not to beat a dead horse but I can positively verify my 360 and R3 do NOT like each other. They both randomly put each other to "sleep" and reduce range on Ka and especially K. Sometimes they seem normal and sometimes they both false to each other very erratically. I always power cycle any detector off an on before any testing/goofing around I do to be sure.

    I can have my R3 on and running and turn my 360 on and the R3 will get a false 34.7 blast almost every time. V1 doesn't like them either but it doesn't "seem" to be as noticeably effected.

    I’ll assume that you didn’t read the whole thread. I’ll also have to assume at this point you didn’t read the entire first post. Please do that when you have a moment.

    Since a couple people here seem to be uptight about the fact that there are three detectors running at the same time when i get the DSP moved and I redo the test I will film them one at a time. As I stated in my first post I originally did this but then discovered running all three at the same time they alerted in the exact same place at the exact same time anyway so to save time plus the fact I thought it would be cool to see them all at one time on the video I put all three together. I most sincerely and wholeheartedly apologize. :)

    Also one final note. I did state this before but it seems some of you missed it. I did not do the original installation. I had it done by an authorized ALP dealer. They told me they put it in the bumper. So when I went and brought them the DSP to replace the original Horn I stayed for it because it was only going to take a half an hour. I then saw where they had put it. They are going to correct it this Friday. I will then post pictures and redo the test on Saturday weather permitting.

    Right that isn't the case here. The thing about this test is that it was behind that plastic. Once he gets it up higher in the grill he will most likely see results comparable to the R3 WS mount.

    I would be willing to bet a significant amount that once I get the DSP moved and the head of it sticking out of the bumper that it will match the R3 exactly.

    Most likely yes. If I had to have the newest thing out all the time I'd get one. But since I don't I have my R3......

    The infrared transparent plastic slides between the plate and mounting and extends low enough to protect the ALP Rx heads and Net Radar. 20180109_113131.

    That's correct. Neither the horn nor the ALP heads are visible unless you're laying on your back looking up.

    Ok problem fixed. DSP moved. More testing tomorrow. Ill post the results on video again.

    [doublepost=1515876176,1515807220][/doublepost]Here is the video of the retest with the new location of the DSP. This was done today. I think after everybody watches this we can all agree that the new location for the DSP is ideal and it definitely does a better job. The R3 still out performs it but not by much and in my opinion it’s such a little amount I would consider it insignificant. Of course the max 360 is destroyed again. Believe me I take no joy in that part of it. I paid $600 for it. At the end I show my install. I apologize ahead of time about the length of the video as it goes just over 5 1/2 minutes.

    Thanks for the updated video. Much better performance with the NR DSP.

    "Max" 360.. guess the Max part is just referring to size and weight, or the amount of tickets you will receive. I'd be pretty bitter if I spent $600 on that too.
