buy 100pound subwoofers and bolt them down with huge bolts. get non mainstream stuff and maybe the idiot will dismiss it..get a high quality alarm system... or even better hire a ninja to guard your car and judo chop the bad guys... really put king kong in the trunk so when they open it up he jumps out and smashes the bad guys.....

for starters, never pound your system in your own neighborhood, never let your neighbors/passerbys see you install your equipment. Most car audio thefts are either from neighbors or anyone else who has heard that you have a decent system or seen you put some subs/amps in your trunk...etc.....Beyond that, a car alarm of course. I'm paranoid too, i wont even open my trunk if anyone is around to see inside and all access to my trunk is locked up from inside

i like that advice.... maybe the thief is that unexpected old couple that live on everyones block and when people bump their systems at all hours of the night grandma and grandpa get mad and so they get out their ninja suits and jack the stuff so that they can sleep at night. lol.. but seriously good advice to me... the only thing is i like everyone to hear me and then they see me and my ride making me an easy target.... i like having an enclosed garage to help protect my stuff.

i understand wanting everyone to hear ya, hopefully you have an alarm too, a garage is little detterent to a determined thief and provides cover for them too. Although i found from my experience that most people on average don't really like to hear others stereo's going boom boom much. bass actually triggers something in a few people that makes them angry, dunno why but i have seen people instantly rage when they hear it. odd only thing i hate is hard rattles. Back in the 90's, i remember it used to get chicks sometimes, not sure if it does now or not. I think like a thief cause unfortunately...i used to be one when i was a teenager. i'm ashamed of it now but i have had karma hit me and got what i deserved. I do believe that most thiefs generally stay within their familiar neighborhood..they see over time, your habits. when you leave for work, how many live there, where the lights are focused, dogs and even the chirp of a car alarm. They also know escape routes, places to hide/watch, fences...etc. in my past, i have sat quietly in the dark and watched, waited and grabbed quickly on foot, tossing goods over fence and within a minute or less i was at home with the goods. Away from neighborhood is more unfamiliar with whats going on at the target area and only the more bolder, hard core thiefs that do a lot of hits in a night do that. generally speaking. thats why i recommend to turn it down once you reach your neighborhood. I used to walk alot as a kid and i noticed when someone booom, boom went by and i knew where they lived...the target was set. Usually 2 AM on a Tue or WED night was excellent time, most in bed for work, dead asleep. Also, bold everything down using hex nuts or something. screwdrivers and ratchet set are what all thiefs carry

Invest in a 45, a shovel and a couple guard dogs. I would say some dogs with rabies
