    Regarding the ALP jammer set-up in combination with the Radenso RC-M
    1) Will the 3 Regular sensors protect against the DragonEye laser gun? I live in FL.
    2) Would it be better purchasing the ALP Priority CPU with 2 regular heads and 1 Tx sensor from ALP?
    3) Where would you mount the 3regular heads on this car b) 2 regular heads and Tx sensor?
    Please note: 20 inches from ground is located at top of Jaguar badge. Would need to place TX sensor off-center.

    3 heads would be good for the DragonEye. The Tx head would help too, but not if it's mounted too low.

    Personally I'd order the ALP from ALP themselves so you can configure it the way you want and choose the accessories you want.

    The RC M and ALP bridge cable you can get from Radenso.

    As for placement suggestions, you can post up the photos of your car here and people will help you with suggestions:

    I think a straight on shot, level with the car would help with suggestions. Those photos seem to be looking down on the car and makes the front end look like it's just a few inches off the driveway.

    Here is a better picture of my 2017 Jaguar F-Type. Where would you mount the 3 regular ALP jammer sensors on this car? If I decide to go with 2 regular heads and a Tx sensor, where should they be mounted?
    Please note: The 20 in. minimum distance above the ground needed for the Tx sensor is located at top of Jaguar badge. Would need to place TX sensor off-center.

    I would put the 2 RX heads 25" apart, mounted on the top of that horizontal, center piece and the TX next to the badge mounted to the underside of the top. Make sure they all stick out about an 8th of an inch to have a clear view from all angles.

    @Andrew21 may want to jump in with his suggestions. Those headlights are not your friends.

    Are you saying that I need to cut the grill? What about mounting the 2 regular sensors below the horizontal center piece?

    My grill is surrounded by a chrome trim. Will reflections from chrome trim cause the jammers to not operate properly? Do the jammers need to extend out as far as the chrome trim? On my Jag, the surrounding chrome trim extends out 2″ beyond the grill. Does this mean that the front of the ALP jammers need to extend 2″ in front of the grill? Thanks for your help.

    Something like this would work.

    Seeing as how the chrome extends a bit, you'll want to make sure your heads are not behind the chrome at all. You can mount them under the chrome, just a hair past being flush or so, and that should work great.
