Cobra Electronics SPX 5500 Ultra-High Performance Radar/Laser Detector

The new SPX 5500 is the culmination of Cobra’s over 30 years of experience in building quality, high-performance, detectors. The game changing SPX Series nearly doubles the detection range, and warning time, of previous models!

Cobra Quality

Cobra uses the latest technology, military grade components, and the best design practices in the world to pack this phenomenal performance into a sleek detector nearly half the size of other detectors in the market. Super-fast sweep circuitry provides extra detection range and the best possible advance warning to all radar/laser guns currently used in the United States and Canada, including POP Mode (Super-fast) Instant-on Radar guns. DigiView Text Display provides clear indication of the signal being detected as well as current mode of the detector.

Details

Other features include Voice/Tone Alert, Signal Strength Meter, LaserEye, IntelliMute/IntelliMute Pro, VG-2/Spectre Radar Detector-Detectors, Safety Alert, Auto/Manual Mute, Dim Modes, City/Highway Filtering Modes, and Ku-band detection.

Features:
  • Digiview Data Display – Provides easily recognizable digital text display
  • Xtreme Range Superheterodyne Technology – Super-fast sweep circuitry provides extra detection range and the best possible advanced warning to even the fastest radar guns
  • Pop Mode Radar Gun Detection – Detects the latest Radar Gun Pop (Super-Fast Instant-On) Mode
  • Digital Signal Strength Meter – Provides the user with relative proximity to the target
  • Voice Alert – Provides the user with specific band voice annunciation

Product Features

  • Ultra-low-noise, signal amplifiers that once were affordable only to military systems
  • Low-microwave-loss circuitry utilizing gold-plated circuit boards
  • Use of flip-chip Mixer/Multiplier diodes in packages that were once unattainable
  • First Local Oscillator Transistor (Super-low-noise, high-mobility J-FET) that has been chosen to optimize signal gain, output power, and low noise characteristics over its frequency range
  • Powerful CPU that enables sweeping of the entire police radar band spectrum in less than 240 milliseconds

    Useful. Turn off X band and POP mode. Learn about radar. Cobra gets badmouthed often by the radar detector community, and for some good reasons. Their marketing is BS and the ‘features’ often get in the way of actual detecting unless you know what you’re doing.I used to have a Cobra about 6 years ago, and it kept me ticket free for 2 years until it got stolen. The SPX 5300 is reminiscent of that. Here in Lee’s Summit, MO, there is a stretch of highway with some known radar sources that I tested it on. I also drive around the KC metro…

    Comes short Cobra has made an affordable radar detector that has 360 degree detection. It comes with voice alert, audio tones and a display letting you know the signal strength and user settings.I already own the which is a permanent fixture in one of my other vehicles. First I noticed the unit comes in a rigid plastic clamshell (I posted a picture on the main page). I…
