After seeing so many topics about RD placement in various cars, it reminded me of a question I ask myself. Why is it that I see mostly everyones thinks that a radar detector should be mounted "down low." Id say 90% of the RDs I see (mostly Cobras and Whistlers) are mounted low(behind the wipers.) Even when I was giving my friend a ride, and I was mounting my x50 (I take it off everytime I get off the car) he asked me "Isnt it supposed to go down there?" I have since taught him the way (up high for radar, down low for laser) :P But the question still remains, why down low?
