Best Theft Deterrents?

Hey guys i was just wondering what would be your best theft deterrent? Recently, some idiot came into my condo's underground parking, somehow avoided all of the camera's and took my friends BRAND NEW indash(literally installed the day before) and striped another one of my friends system This was the first time there has been a break-in in over a year and apparently 4-5 cars were broken into for decks so i was wondering, what would be your best theft deterrent? besides taking everything out lol in fear i stripped the majority of system out until i can work out a new idea to stop a thief or at least slow down

1. Installing a secondary alarm horn in the car connected to my second battery, hopefully it will make the car loud enough that the thief gives up and runs away
2. using Silicone or another adhesive to secure my amps to my seat and make it a B*TCH to take out, possibbly figure out a way to bolt my sub box to the chassis
3. Using specially designed bolts for my indash, can i even get those?

Does anyone have any good ideas to hopefully make all cars a pain in the A$$ to strip and steal? id love some more ideas lol

1) Tints, 2) no stickers, 3) don't blast your system in your neighbourhood.

Dont think silicone is gonna help, they like to use prybars and wirecutters, they are far from gentle removing gear. From now on if it will fit under my seat thats where its going, bolt your box down, from the inside of box preferably. And the strap on the back of ur deck that no one seems to use is a good idea too.

Uh, hell yeah? I think that might do it, what the hell is that thing from anyway?

I'm putting a Compustar 2-way that I bought on here from MR2NR on my Routan.
