    Given your constraints, I believe this would be an ideal setup for you (Red = StandardReceiver/jammer head, and Yellow = TX Jam signal only head). If, however, price is less of an object, and better protection is your primary consideration, I would get a full quad system for each car, double sided tape the receiver/jammer heads on the outsides, and place a TX in the middle of each set of heads.

    P.S. if it were my Cadillac, I would put put TX heads where the red circles are, and double sided tape regular heads on top of the 3rd main chrome rail, directly underneath the TX heads (That's a LOT of chrome lol).

    if you're located around the North East and want to test them out let me know.

    Thank you, why do you note to double sided tape the regular heads but (presumably) hard install TX heads? The front end is admittedly a very massive target.

    I've double sided taped all my sensors, and I would double sided tape TX heads as well if I got them. It doesn't really make a difference how you secured them, just as long as they are level, straight, and securely fixed.

    Here sa link to a thread where someone has a similarly large front end and (apparently) has no trouble with 3 regular heads up front. It's all a cost benefit though. The way I look at it is the heads will probably lose $50 in value over a year or two, so you're not exactly losing your entire investment, and the whole point of these things for me is to have the piece of mind that I'm not going to have to deal with tickets or worse for any reason at any time, and I know I'm protected against any laser gun. If that's your goal maybe 2 regular heads and 2 TXs up front and 2 regular with one TX in the back is the most protected way to go.

    Let me know what you decide, I'm interested!
