Default G-Wagon Install and set up Question

Loving the G so far! SUV is a tank and a beast 0-60! Slotted for my Max 360ci install next tuesday. My dealer couldn't answer a few questions and was going to reach out to his source, but I feel like Escort Radar would know what is best. I am planning on running all 4 of the Max CI's shifters in the front. The front is massive and I rather be safe and have more than I need. However I have some questions about it set like that.
If all the heads are set to the front when dealing with a gun like the dragon, what is the firing vs recieving configuration like? do 2 fire 2 receive? 1 and 3 of either combo? how do I set it up for the best protection?
Than for the rear I was going to add seperate ZR5 system and purchase 2 additional heads. The car is just that big and has massive chrome brush guards. How do I have him configure those heads? Can I make it alert to rear only shifting?
Finally my installer said he can wire both systems to a single power kill switch so I don't have to worry about figuring out which set to kill on the fly. Any issue with cycling the power off mid jam?

As long as the installer changes the shifters DIP switches in the MAX Ci Interface to all front, then there is no issue using all four shifters up front (see picture below).

Likewise, the ZR5 has the same DIP switches on its interface which will need to be changed if you use sensors 1 and 2 at the back of your vehicle.

There is no issue using a kill switch for either system.

That is excellent. Do you know if the rear will than alert "rear laser shifting" our is the voice different from the 360, so I know the difference? Guess that doesn't matter if I just kill the whole system anyway though.

One Last question if you will please, so I can make sure the heads go in the best locations. With 4 heads in the front when you get zapped with a variable pulse rate gun, how many heads fire/receive?

Tremendous help, I am excited for the install

The ZR5 uses the same voice as the MAX Ci 360.

All four heads fire and receive.
