This topic was actually a driving force in the design elements of the XM7 tower speakers. We spoke to so many shops and people that have had their speakers stolen it was just plain bad! Lets face it, a rack full of high dollar speakers is just like putting a steak in front of a hungry dog.
With this in mind, you can just pop off the XM7 pods by way of loosening a thumbscrew. When the speakers are down the tower just has the clamps on them and they look factory because there isn't any hanging flying wires around.
Lastly, the XM7's come with neoprene wetsox that have built in handles for easy carrying.
So bottom line: if its expensive, you better take it off your boat or it will be gone!
ps: side note... if people call in and want to buy just a clamp, we are ULTRA suspect. Kinda like trying to buy just a face plate for a CD player.

Razzman, I am pretty sure what I am going to do to deter theft of the entire boat. I got a great deal on it and if it gets stolen, I just get a better one. The thing I am concerned with is the stereo system single components getting stolen and costing me 100 to 500 a pop. That is below my ins deductible.
Thanks for all the ideas, several heads are always better than one.
Does anyone recommend an alarm by personal preference?
Right now I am going to go with:
Removable faceplate on HU
Locks on Tower Speakers
Torx screws on sub to box
Bolt box to boat
Lock on observation seat
Heavy cable boat trailer to tree
At least I will sleep better

Try using an uncommon screw and bolt heads such as a torx head where a good thief would have to bring a good tool box or come back later with the right tool.1998 Mobius
