    I think the super-bright blue, flashing alarm type LED's are at the very least a bit of a deterrent. make something that looks like a 2-way alarm transmitter, with a blue led in it and mount it by your rear view mirror. I know If I was jackin sh|t, I'd likely keep walking if I saw that... especially in front of a house.

    That sucks, sorry to hear that.

    I think the best idea though is to keep your system and vehicle as less 'attention grabbing' as possible. Also, it's probably a good idea to not show off your system to anyone, and turn up your subs when your fairly close to your house.

    If they don't know that the vehicle has anything worth stealing, chances are they wont bother with it.

    actually, i do have an alarm with bright, blue leds and there are near the mirror. but i guesss that it went off and nobody wanted to chek out their windows and check and i was knocked out and didnt hear it either. that sucks and also, i had learned my leason when the last time that i got jacked, i used to show off my system before. i used to pound and i had bright leds on my box. this time, i would turn off the monitor and lower my sounds when i got to my block, but i guess people saw me using my comp when i was parking in front of my house configuring it. people would walk by and see me using it. i think thats what it was. stupid gang bangers around my hood

    look into getting a smoke screen and some window film that police use to prevent it breaking so easily.

    Sorry to hear about your loss! Something I would do...

    Get the loudest most annoying alarm you can buy. I know there's this one guy by my house, I can gear his alarm from like a block away, and I always look out the window and see if it's coming from closer up...

    Basically, get an alarm that catches people's attention....

    Peace,

    Rafster

    Yeah, that sucks. My friend just had his lilliput stolen from his car. The dumbasses didn't take the harness so they really can't do anything with it.. I guess that is what security systems are for

    yea, i guess i gotta upgrade my alarm horn. i think i am going to be getting a louder, more annoying one. thanks for the tip! also, one of the things the ****ed me off the most is that the idiots that took my k301 probably believe that its a full blown dvd player or gps unit or something and when they find out that its just a computer monitor, they probably just going to sell it for like 50 bukz. they dont even know what that thing is worth.
