I would have to go back and search as to specifically whose "brand" was being discussed. It was quite awhile ago.
I don't currently use a knock detector...rather, an active ignition retard via pre-set boost level(s). Still, the concept of a knock sensor seems very sound whether or not it can hear past all the background noise. As I recall, half the users swore by them, and the other half were on the fence. Hey, the worse thing it can do is cause premature retarding and a little power loss. Seems like a fair trade off I guess.
