    Help me make an anti-theft install...

    after having some cretins steal my stuff...i want wanted to know if it was possible to create an install which was unstealable (or almost)??

    I know door speakers are very rareeellly gunna be stolen! would be shocked if anyone would even know they were there to steal them! and i remember seeing a guy on here running 10" subs infinite baffle in the rear door cards of his astra? requiring quite a bit of work...although i dunno if this would sound right?

    Was wondering...whats the best way to go, in order to get decent loud quality sound just by using the doors...maybe 6x9s in the back doors for bass? I know these aren't the best route for bass, but for this useage might be ok? or 8" subs??

    I know amps are always gunna be difficult to hide...any suggestions on that front??

    Thanks guys

    For starters, get the 6x9s of the shelf!! (Do away with em altogether!)
    Then perhaps look ate tamper proof screws for everything, esp the subs and amps.

    Complete stealth.....

    you can replace fronts with components easily enough without people noticing...
    False floor in the boot with the amp sunk in....and bin the spare wheel and have the sub enclosure built into the wheel well....

    Total stealth...

    lol guys...i dont have expensive stealth (any more)...and i would NEVER put 6x9s in parcel shelf! lol...thats just asking for trouble...i was just asking for ideas on a stealth install...

    sub in the spare wheel well...that sounds interesting! does that mean i'd have to carry tyre weld with me? and run the risk of messing up alloys + tyres??

    Screw everything in with security screws and if you have a sub box take out the sub and use BIG coach bolts with BIG washers to bolt it to the false floor or boot floor then put the sub back in (Again with securtiy screws)

    If the cant grab it within 2-3 minutes they wont bother as they are more likely to get caught

    At the end of the day, the best way to stop people trying to steal something is not to tempt them into doing it. You wanna make sure if they look into your car they wont see anything they want. Make sure you dont leave the facia from the head unit in the glove box. All my expensive stuff is in the boot, out of sight.
