Laser Interceptor Quad install on 2006 Porsche 997C4S
Well the install is finally done. A good buddy of mine and I spent a few days on the installation and the pictures below show the results. First a disclaimer. I decided to run 3 heads up front and 1 in the rear. Since the far majority of the encounters I have had with laser have been head shots I wanted full and probable overkill coverage in that area. I realize I am probably sacrificing coverage in the rear to do this however. (Stealth Stalker has volunteered to help test the setup and hopefully that will take place in the next couple of weeks. That will give us some good date points as to what protection I do or do not have in the rear.)
Anyway, here is what we did. We first put the car on my lift and then took off the front and rear bumpers, ran the cabling and installed the heads. They all are even with the front bumper or rear in that case and not recessed. The heads are level and pointed straight ahead. Power was taken from a switched power hub located under the driver side dashboard. The On/Off switch is located just below the parking brake handle. (It is the forward button. The rear button is a power switch for the sports exhaust.) We wanted this location for its stealthyness as well as easy access. (I can easily reach this location by hand reference of the parking brake and do not have to look down for it.) We also used an Escort external speaker, (Located behind the PCM pointed towards foot pedal area) with the volume control mounted on the side a few inches above where my right knee is when driving. (Also easily reachable but unseen unless you stick your head in the floorboard area.)
I’ll report back when I get some performance validation following the testing.
PS- Thanks Cliff, USA Laser Interceptor distributor, for all your assistance and great customer support!
