Tinted windscreen effect my radar/laser detector?

Fellow speed demons, will my ztech dark tinted windscreen effect my radar/laser detector?
My Escort / Passport 9500i is mounted above the spedo/tach just behind the windscreen. stevebaum

Probably kiss the laser detection goodbye and a 20% reduction in radar.

I was advised by Aeroflow when I updated the windshield on the GT to go with the "Clear Laminar Flow Screen" instead of black when I told them I use a detector behind it. Black would have looked cooler, imho, but I opted for the clear.

As a thought, you could always try it in front of some mini-market door opener and do a range check on either X or K band behind the screen and without it to see.

I poked around radardectector.com & it seemed to say metallic tints upset reception the most on these units ....
