    Re: Tips to avoid getting jacked

    Ive read through the majority of these, and haven't seen it yet so ill post it.
    I have a small cable ran around a spoke on both of my sub baskets with a lock connecting them. There's no breaking it, or even moving the woofers really, and the only way is to reach in through the port with a key. Doesn't add much displacement, and an easy way to ruin a thief's day. Just an idea though :p works for me so far.
    Theres some great info on this thread, thanks!

    Re: Tips to avoid getting jacked

    Record a message played on a loudspeaker mounted under your car that starts with a demented laugh and then has a voice that says "Im coming to f*** you." Then have it go back to laughter. Have another speaker start playing the sound of a woman screaming. Just as that starts, your air horns start blaring and a blue rotating cop light starts flashing. Bonus points if you have a red strobe light in the car that starts flashing with no fixed interval. Have the brain hidden behind the passenger airbag or instrument panel, and have one that sends a remote message warning you that your car is being messed with. Maybe a couple of those handheld piezo sirens that you pull the chord on to activate. As you approach the car pull the chords and throw the sirens in a couple of directions (before they see you). I would only approach the car if it was one thief, he didnt see me, and I had a gun I knew how to use. Attacking with pepper spray is too risky, and more than one thief what if they both have guns?

    Anyways, great advice on this thread!

    It seems to me the most effective way is to bring fear into the equation- fear of getting caught, fear of the sick angry owner who just so happens to likely be a sadist, etc. A veteran car thief is pretty much immune to this- best way to avoid him stealing your equipment is to have a plane jane car with no stickers and as stealth an install as you can manage.

    Time it takes to install all of it again? Time it takes waiting for the insurance to send you a payment? Time it takes dealing with them on the phone trying to weasel out of paying? Chance they find some loophole to get out of paying? Cost of install for those who cant do it theirselves? Time spent driving around without a stereo because of theft?

    I get your point for sure, but I do think there is definitely a point to the tips in this thread
