View Full Version : long range car alarms

07-08-2007, 01:43 PM
I am going to be going to a very large university soon and plan on upgrading my existing car alarm. All I want is a 2 way with the longest range possible and I will add back-up batteries and a proximity later. What do you all recommend for 2 ways with lots of range.

the Viper 791xv has a decent range. But what you gonna do when you are 1/2 mile away and your remote is buzzing? By the time you get there it will be too late?

I plan on having 5 sirens total. 1 outside like normal with the horn honk and then 2 piezo's inside that hurt your ears and 2 regualr sirens inside. They will have a battery back up inside somewhere and one for outside. I will also have a prox sensor, tilt sensor, glass break sensor, and the wire cut sensor for my tail lights.

Idea being if alarm goes off it sounds like a normal one until they open the door and then the other sirens become clearly audible :) not to mention I shouldn't be more then .5 miles away from my vehicle so they are going to have an angry guy hauling *** towards them :) I was looking at the 5900 and it seems to have the best range. Even with the size of the campus I will be attending I shouldn't be more then .5 miles away regardless.

Can anyone think of something that beats the 5900 in range?

Longest range possible is DEI SST.

I just got my 50.5X and it's great. The Viper 5900 and Python 990 are the SST models.

compustars have a 2 mile range

Maybe on paper they do but don't expect anything near that in the real world...

i have a viper 791 that gets decent range and a clifford 50.5x that i am installing this weekend. the piezos arent that loud i have laid under my dash many times with them going off and they just arent that loud. and i dont believe there is a wire cut sensor either. get one of the dei sst systems.
