Has anyone with an Akrapovic notice the alarma going off?

I seem to notice a lot of car alarms going off in car parks when I drive off from Cold with my Akrapovic evo system. Not surprising when you stand behind the pipes and feel the bass

Anyone else noticed this?

Happens each morning when I got to work.
The Akra exhaust has a very low bass tone when you first crank the car up in the morning.

I notice this too, however I'm not on an Akra system. I would figure most aftermarket race exhausts during a cold start would set off car alarms.

There was a POS old Buick parked next to me at work yesterday and when I start the car, it set off the POS's alarm. Also, at where I live, there's a Honda Fit Sport and every time I drive by the car and the alarm would go off. It's hilarious.

this isnt limited to akra exhaust... i think almost all aftermarket exhausts do this.

Yes I notice most of the time Akra will set off the most sensitive car alarm in the parking garage not only in cold start. It's really hilarious............. and kind of fun......

Wow. I never thought the Akrapovic would do such a thing. I didn't think it was THAT much louder than stock - but then again, I guess it's not just purely decibels, but the effect of the lower registers that really move the air, thus setting off the alarms.

Cool

The stock SL63's exhaust will set off alarms more often than an E92 with Eisenmann race!

Anyone with the slip-on akrapovic alone setting off alarms. I was wondering if it was the effect of the x-pipe in combination with the slip-on.
