View Full Version : Need an alarm for my truck

looking at the viper 791xv... any other suggestions?

I dont like my viper 771....basically the same as the 791 except it has the LED remote not the LCD. The range on it *****, it might be my tint or windshield material from what I have heard, but my friend's Prestige alarm range is great. If i had to get an alarm again, I would get Compustar

over 1 mile range
my friend has one on his charger, works awesome

python 990 or viper 5900(i think) are deis new alarms/rem start systems that have much better range than the older ones.

which compustar model? theres a few....

12-07-2006, 09:53 PM
Higest one, of course ;)

12-07-2006, 09:53 PM
1.13 mile range

Dont really need the remote start but its still a nice alarm

I have the compustar in my charger. Most likely the best investment for that car I have done to date. Kind of annoying since its so sensitive, but better the keypad go off then you get your **** jacked..

i use the 791xv. but that was because the only shop in town that did installs carried it exclusively. brands are almost equal, the difference is the install

I have a warlock wsr-2 alarm. Its a little cheaper than the viper and works fine for me. I am getting ~ a half mile range.

I think the first alarm had the LCD screen that tells you which part of the car is going off

just bought the 2wss for $200 shipped... will let you know how i like it when i install it, thanks again

The 1 way means you cannot interact with your car. No LCD display..
2 way means you get the LCD pager.
The 2nd alarm isnt as good and has lower range.
