I have a 2003 Civic and I want to upgrade the audio system. What I have right now is just the base model stuff.
I'd like to put in a new receiver, speakers and subwoofers.
I'm concerned about theft though. I know poeple will break car windows to steal audio equipment on a car. Is this something I need to worry about? Would the chances of my receiver getting stolen outweight the benefits of having a new audio system?

usually the receiver/amplifier is stored in the trunk. Some cars have ways to set the trunk such that it can only be opened with a key - i. e. the lever inside the car will not open it. If you have that feature, then the decision is easy. Just make sure that, if you have someone else install it, they know to put it all in the trunk.
That said, the chances of any theft is generally pretty low. But it's not zero. If you could simply apply the average rate of theft to the cost, you would find that it isn't a factor. But you can't do that. Theft is binary. The chances are low, but if it happens, it's going to suck.0
