UPDATE:Holy fuck they caught them! I just got a call from the police, they caught them stealing someone else's shit and they caught them with my equipment along with other peoples. (apparently was a string of robberies)


I hadn't even called the cops yet! I am proud of the system now. Damn! I'm getting my beat back!

I hopped in the car today to take my grandfather to his oncology appointment. I look at the seat and there are empty ink cartridges from the console sitting there. I put them up and cut on the car, then the H/U. I get no bass. I cut off signal to the amp and wait to get to his appointment to check, when I look, the trunk is empty. Except for the wires. (The power wire sitting right on top of the ground too, great way to torch the fuking car)


It wasn't the most crazy or expensive set-up. But it is all I had, and I had been working on it for a while. Hell, 2 of the subs I had in there I had had since I was 14-15 (17 now)


I don't even come close to having the money to replace what I lost. Just the other day I was thinking about how I was going to cover my next date with the gf.

Car audio is my one hobby, beside motorcycles. I am already working on my 3rd install. It makes me rage that someone took it to make a couple bucks, or hook it up like shit and blow everything.

I guess I'll file a police report, I'm already keeping an eye on craigslist, and I'm in the process of calling all the local pawn shops.



For those wondering. It was an AP-1500.1 and 4 cheap-ish 12s. They didn't touch the H/U.


That said, here's a short flex vid http://www.stevemead..._DIR#/shrug.gif



The noise is the car port/house shaking. That's right where it was parked btw.

People are fucking stupid. Buy a gun and dont be afraid to use it when you see fuckers like that.

Also, this is why $200 invested into an alarm can be the best money you spend on a system.

I'll have to end up taking pics. To show you exactly how bold these fukers were. The driveway is a couple hundred yards long, and the car is tucked way up behind the house. Inside of the car port. I don't live in a bad area whatsoever and other family members drive it so it's kind of hit or miss if it gets locked. I lock it almost every time.

The thing is, we have a loud ass beagle that barks/howls even if I'm walking up the driveway, and a German Shepherd in the house. So why nobody heard anything is beyond me. My luck really pisses me off, any other night I would be wide awake and if he barked I probably would have went out to tell him to STFU.

In case you haven't picked up on it it HAD to be someone that KNEW I had beat. It was either someone I know or someone that heard me from the Dr's office that is literally next door. (Which is probably where they parked to carry 200+lbs of beat.


I hope it was someone I know, because I'd have a better chance of finding it that way. If it was from next door I guess I'm just fuked. It was already bad enough having no privacy, now I have to watch for people scoping out my shit.

really sucks they broke into your car and stole your stuff, but playing your system in your neighborhood especially in your driveway kinda invites trouble

I feel for you man, I live on 77~ acres of land and we're gun crazy. Have our own rifle pit and pistol pit, people around here know we have guns (especially when my uncle brings out the BMG 50). We shoot weekly and invite friends over to scope in rifles/purchase weapons because my uncle (my neighbor) is a certified gun dealer. Even though we all live on top of a hill and about 200 yards from the actual road I still enjoy sitting at the window at 3 in the morning just waiting for a fucker to come on my property and try to steal something. I know a lot of people are in cities and what not and I don't even want to think about how paranoid I'd be about robbers. I avoid playing my system anywhere around where I live to try and keep it a secret but as I said I know a lot of people don't have the luxury. I hope you find who did it and fuck them over ten-fold but until then keep your head up.

I don't really have a "neighborhood" and the only time I did was first pulling up the driveway, when I was setting the gain, short demos. I only have one neighbor and he's cool, asked us if WE minded loud music when he first moved in.

i just meant anyone could hear it meaning it could attract attention from anywhere. more people tend to hear it than youd expect. had some friends learn that the hard way

Sorry, didn't notice the question. Yeah, they were in the cabin. Went through the glove box/console. There were also 2 motorcycle helmets in there that they didn't even touch.

I have a suspicion of who it was but it would come off really racist, lol.

I keep it down as I get closer to the house. I also don't rep any company stickers, perfect wire hiding, and my bass knob is next to the seat instead of in the dash.

The balls on these assholes..

that sucks sorry to hear that. my buddy has 4 12's in his truck and he left the windows down one day in his driveway and we went inside. well luckly he knew the lady across the street and she called him and said some kid is stickin his head inside your truck lookin around. my buddy walked out there and the kid was just freakin looking around inside of his truck the kid was probably about 16 or 17 my buddy said boy ill beat your ass get the hell outa here and that kid halled ass

Current system: Front stage: Alpine type s 6.5 No rear:Alpine type s 6.5 headunit: alpine Amp: Jbl bp600.1

Sub: Alpine type x 12  

 

dont know much about them. Found a "FLUX" Capacitor on ebay. If I add this to my system, can I really travel into the future? And how far into the future? That probably all depends on how I ground it though, right?

Dude dont even waste your money on capacitors get a second car battery preferably a kinetik or stinger or any other car audio battery use the battery that is correct for your systems true rms wattage do some research on the net for this. Go to kinetiks website they explain how to pick a battery from thier site that fits your system. :shrug:

I live in an apt complex, had a guy who is friends with a neighbor, looking in my car one night. So I waited looking through the window, he walked to his car and came back with a slim jim. I walked into the bedroom grabbed my .38, walked out the back door and ran around to the opposite side of the car where he was headfirst inside the trunk, I pointed the revolver, cocked it, he froze! I called the cops, pressed charges, and he had violated porole, went away for 6 months!

I give someone the uttmost credit if they can steal my sub, I have 4 grade 8 steel bolts holding the box to the car, plus the sub fits so tight in the box it aint going anywhere!

Sorry for your loss regardless of the cost of equipment! Bolt your next box to the floor and use 2 different types of screws to mount the subs! Makes it nearly impossible without making a shit ton of noise, which your dogs will hear!

I'm sorry if I sound like an asshole, but I'm gonna go ahead and say this.
I don't think you shit was actually stolen, you just wanted attention.


edit-
And if your stuff really WAS stolen, I apologize. And congrats on getting it back.
It just all seems fishy.
