my dad had ne of those back in the day with the invisabeam option on it and the talking alarm and he loved it, he wish he can get another one just like it
10-16-2006, 11:54 PM
so does that mean its a good alarm or what? i mean security wise?
10-16-2006, 11:55 PM
IMO it did its job and did it well, he had a newer prestige that i wasnt to fond of as security goes, but that was the lower end model, show me which model your actual getting
10-16-2006, 11:56 PM
yes, i install em, they are not bad. and it depends how good you install it, if it works good or not.

yeah my boss is helping me wire it up at the shop:). here's the link to the model i got.

specs seem pretty slick to me, jus make sure to hide the brain well, and siren facing to the ground to get a wider range of sound

oh alright i'll be sure to keep that in mind thanks man. what does it mean by option on the remote what does that mean sry im not good with alarms=/?

by option, i thinks its how you can use your remote with another car with the same alarm installed.

serious , thats crazy , it says u can program remote 2 turn on diffrent things does this mean i could program it for neons and such sry if this is a dumb question

probably, ive seen two way remotes trigger hidden amp boards to slide out of hidden compartments very slick
10-17-2006, 12:20 AM
thats sweet man im gonna see if my boss could maybe wire it so would turn on my inside neons maybe or im thinkn might just make a switch panel then fiberglass enclosure around it to hold it:)

most alarms have outputs for things like turning on lights./ moving racks.. etc. it states what wires do that in the alarm, then you program the remote to use it.

10-17-2006, 12:28 AM
