View Full Version : How do you keep your audio safe?

You've spent hundreds to thousands of dollars in your audio. What do you do to keep it from being stolen? I have the basic alarm. All of my stuff is pretty much secure as in you wouldn't even know I had anything. The only reason you would know is b/c you heard it or looked at my stock location for the tweeters and noticed it said MB Quartz.

Suggestions/ comments welcome.

Also, did you inform your auto insurance agent? Did they include it in your policy?

by driving a vehicle no one would suspect...

by parking under lights and locking all doors...

Everything looks stock.

Tweeters are recessed into sail panels
Mids in the doors
Amps under the seats
Sub box bolted to the trunk with star screws
sub bolted to box with hex screws
Changer in glove box

The only thing you can see is the CDA-9807 in my dash

Yes. Stereo insurance coverage is extra. Your regular policy will not cover anything that is not installed in factory locations.

Gots my 9mm between my driver and passenger seat, and when i leave the vehicle, its in my pants on top of my *****.

Also: Locking all doors and parking under lights. And when at home, i parke right beside my bedroom window which is beside my head. If im in an extra jumpy mood, ill crack my BR window. At this point, the 9mm, is under my mattress.

I got all my stuff stolen, and I had an alarm. My new theft deterant system will include something that shocks the **** out out of them if they touch my door latches! Good to have a dad who is an electrical engineer! 9MM always work good too! .44 Magnum with hollowpoints works better! I am going to cut a whole in my armrest and put my HU in there. I did not even have my faceplate on it, but the guy ripped open my locked glove box and took it! If they see a cd player they will still take it, I had almost the same model Punkrocka had!

Locking all doors, parking under lights, parking in the middle of a college parking lot with security on campus, and cameras everywhere dont do S***!

Dont you just love trunkmonkey !

Where you park is a *big* factor. Never ever park in the open. And if you have to park in a parking lot - don't park next to any cars and don't go into a space backwords. If you do.... someone can hide between the cars while they pop your trunk.

Putting all that stuff over your windows to hide things isnt good either.. it blocks the inside of the car from view... so if someone is in your car jackin your stuff nobody can see.

Keep it in a well lit - busy area... and typically your fairly safe. Parking right next to where you sleep also helps.. ALOT. Particularly if you are a light sleeper.

If you have an alarm... either turn the shock sensor WAY down, or just dont use one. If the dam thing always goes off, people grow used to it. If your alarm only goes off when your hood/trunk/door opens... you know something is going on for sure.

Most newer cars are also harder to break into... older cars are complete cake.

Use odd screws to put in the speakers... and if you keep the face to the cd player in the car - put it in an oddball spot that nobody would think to look. Alot of the time... they break in - look for the face and if they cant find it they'll either tear up ure car or just leave.

but by far the best thing to have in ure car is the trunkmonkey... and he might save your life in an accident!

First I try not tell people what kind of system I have and if I do I inform them my CHL is current (consealed handgun license). Seems to work..

Course the Kimber Eclipse and AR-15 seem to be the best bet

10-13-2004, 03:06 PM
Of course your CHL is current your from Texas! I never told anybody about my system though they could hear it, and the guy could not pick my locks one bit, really screwed up my door jame trying to do it, but windows are the weakpoints, I am gonna tint mine so dark it will make Biggie Smalls look white as my friend Miguel put it.

IIRC you can steal an older Toyota corolla, like 80's with a pair of scissors.
Not just break into
