    Viper Alarms

    I am going to purchase a car alarm tomorrow and was gonna ask around a bit first. I called this place audio express and the total amount to have them install a viper 5900 with the bybass is $710. Now with best buy on the viper 791with bybass is about $530. What is the major difference between these two auto start alarms? Big price difference just trying to see whats up. Thx in advance.

    5900 is the SST which means it has the 1 mile range. 791 will give you 1/4 mile range. same alarm and rs otherwise.

    Re: Viper Alarms

    791 gives you 3/4 mile range. I have the 5900 and its an awesome alarm, and i got a great deal of only $380 installed.

    The 5900 is not worth the extra money. The mile range and 3/4 range is assuming your in an open field or whatever, so you wont notice much of a difference at all in range between the two.



    The Setup:

    Alpine CDE-9881
    Alpine 15" Type R
    Directed 2400

    4guage comp. series wiring

    had to point this out you are wrong. and i quote from directeds website "you will get confirmation back that it started from up to one-quarter mile away."
    the 7900 there has been issues with it from what i have heard and it ***** the batteries.

    I believe it is rated at 3/4 mile range to be able to remote start your vehicle but you are also correct in saying that you will only get confirmation 1/4 mile away. Either way there is quite a bit of difference in range from remote to brain than brain to remote.

    And if you feel the extra range is worth the price than go for it

    Re: Viper Alarms

    I have the 5900 and it was welll worth it for me. Mines didn't go all the way to 1 mile but 3/4 of a mile. Still far enough for me. I compared my alarm to my friend's 791xv and his range did not seem far at all.

    Re: Viper Alarms

    if by legit you mean authorized, then probably not.
    but if you want the "best" price, it's usually the place to go

    Re: Viper Alarms

    the only time you are going to find an authorized dei alarm is installed. just buy it off line and have a local installer put it in.... shouldnt be more then $400 after everything is said and done. it will be the same alarm and probably the same quality.... audio express is a rip off... ask them where the $1 install went on that alarm....
