    I have a decent stereo system in my Blazer and I just got my
    Tuffy 6x9 boxes. They put the entire speaker inside the metal box. They have safety lock torx bit heads on them.
    They look like they will keep thiefs away from my speakers when I have the top off. I don't know how they will sound yet in there but, I rather have secure than sound better.

    I plan to bolt them in the corner just behind the door pillars just under the bed rail.

    Just a little FYI!

    a metal box for speakers... i dont know about that..(not saying they arent but for sound purposes it would really really suck..) if you wonder what i mean about that.. take a piece of wood and hit it.. then take a piece of metal and hit it.. you will find the wood give a little thump where the metal will continue to vibrate and give off a little ringing sound... but hey.. like you said.. you want secure.. bolt them to the truck and it aint coming out easly... lol

    I figured they wouldn't sound as good as a wood enclosure but, when I top is off the wind noise makes it sound like crap anyway. But, its one less thing to worry about when the tops off!

    You could put a dual zone sensor on the truck.. meaning you would have to put an alarm on the truck.. or if you already have one you can add the sensor.. this way if someone get near it or puts the head in then it would set the alarm off...

    Currently its sitting in my driveway because of the tranny getting toasted. Plus, its not worth it to put an alarm on it in the condition its in now. But, down the road when I have it all fixed up I would want dual zone sensor on the Blazer.
