I guess the rumble of the 40 Series upon start-up was too much for the Silhouette parked next to me at the mall today, as evidence by the ever-annoying horn honking sequence. :biggrinfl Anybody else have this problem?

My alarm is pretty sensitive. It goes off all the time at school when this guy with a chevy truck and open headers drives by and big rigs with jake brakes always do it. I drove by a police car once and the lights & siren came on. I freaked out and then I noticed there was nobody in the car. Come to find out, the police in that town have an alarm that is connected to their lights & siren and I set it off with my subs. I found out from a local car audio shop that says it happens all the time.

I used to set them off all the time with my TBirds. My BB TBird would set them off from about a block away. My 331 stroker was a bit quieter. :biggrin: My Trep barely keeps me awake... :)

Some people have their shock sensors set to the max sensitivity and or have multiple sensors they can go off all the time, others go off cause your car's too loud. :wow:

my muffler used to set them off all the time. Then again, I'd be driving down narrow city streets with only a foot or so to spare on either side and multistory buildings on each side and the sound would just echo.

Yeah, my shock sensor is set pretty sensitive because it is mounted towards the front of the car and with the trep being so big, if I reduce the sensitivity it won't pick up any shocks to the back of the car.

I once set off an alarm just by walking within maybe 20 feet of a car once. Some riced out white car. I assume even a loud audio system could do it.

I had a beater 1986 Cutlass supreme 307. That thing was soo rusted to death the exhaust fell off on some rail road tracks one day and the thing was soo loud, we drove past a used car dealer and about 5 cars were honking and flashing. About two cop cars were in the parking lot a few minutes later.

Same reason why you see people pull into a parking lot and then put a club on thier Hyundai accent or some such. This always makes me crack up. Hmmm, I'm a thief and, out of a lot full of cars. I think I'll steal that Kia Rio or Ford Escort...yeah! Then if the cops chase me, I can ....uhm...outmileage 'em! Yeah, that's it! As far as minivans go, hate to say it, but the best looking one I think out there now is the Toyota Sienna. The Mopar ones look like a jellybean on wheels. My 85 Voyager looked better.
