Why would you give yourself mini panic attacks all day?!

I prefer my 9500ix's Ka brap but I've learned to deal with my STI-R's now.

Hahahha actually it is better because my ear is trained for listening that sound and gets my attention at the moment. ;)

I miss my 9500ix for the sounds it makes. Especially the nice lady that alerts me to the band.

The plus and V1 are fine but certainly not impressive. I actually find the K and KA on the v1 are a little too similar for my liking.

I know what you mean. Lindsey Lohan does the announcements or rather I should say groaning in my 9500IX :eek:

My fav would be the V-1's Dee-DEET when alerting to another signal; especially when it reveals a COP hiding in the shadow of a routine(known) false.

Beltronics Ka band and X band (I think the X band alert is more attention-getting and should be swapped with the Ka alert, but anyways...)

Yeah, I enabled X-band for the first time on a long road trip on my STI-R Plus and literally jumped out of my seat the first time I heard that alert.

Holy crap. Same thing. I left X-band on with my new Plus. Also jumped, and hit the brake harder than necessary. But not just the first time, probably the first 10 times.

I like the Ka sound on the plus. It's distinctive, but not "Shit your pants there must be something going down" kind of distinctive like X. Why they used that tone for the least important band is beyond me.

I like that too, just not at full volume, it almost hurts my ears, half volume on the lever is good though.

My favorite is probably the Beltronics Ka chirp. It almost reminds me of the tone at the end of a radio/walkie talkie and makes me think of the radios in the LEOs cars, that might be why I like it lol.

But I also like the Redlines Ka brap.

I don't like the V1s harsh tones very much.

I like the whistler KA band tone. To me it sounds like frogger or pacman or something. Beltronics also has a neat KA band tone. Not sure how to describe it but it's pretty cool.

Also the redline KA brap isn't too bad. I like it, I also like the voice too.

I actually miss the RX-65 alert sounds. The V1 is just okay in audible alerts...

I've gotten plenty of OH SHIT moment alerts from K-band... I respect it... INSP and the construction crew are in cahoots with each other. They setup drones along the I65 N/W Indiana corridor to IL and CHI and they've been very active... Luck fully the V1 chimes in with 2 bogeys but sometimes you just can't tell if its the second drone or if it's a real LEO... and the frequencies aren't reliable enough to work with... /end rant

Personally my STIR plus KA sound is my favorite. Maybe its because it usually goes off first.

Sure. I just made one beep repeat itself. That way is slow enough and doesn't get annoying. Send me a pm with an email and I'll mail it to you ;)
