Hi, first of all, which system did you buy?

Gotcha.

You ever been hit from behind? IIRC, kits come with two heads, and you buy extra heads individually. So would one be enough in the rear or might as well do two or nothing?

Only one way to find out is testing.
Why does it matter if the slats aren't perpendicular to the road? The head should fit in between the slats, where you can angle it how you'd like, the way tambourine did?
