Clifford 650 MK3 CAT1 Alarm

The Clifford Concept 650 is undoubtedly one of the best security systems money can buy. A reputation renowned Worldwide, this system strikes fear into the most ardent of car thieves. With its G5 Technology and Anti Hi-Jacking Features, this system protects YOU and your vehicle from whatever the Car Thief can throw at it!

The amount of features are endless and can provide you with the ultimate protection, leaving all other Car alarms standing.

Clifford 650 MK3 CAT1 Alarm Features :

  • Proximity Alert Sensors
  • Shock Sensors
  • Tilt Sensor
  • Internal Sensors
  • Immobiliser
  • Bumper Protection
  • Battery Back up Siren


  • LED – The Clifford Concept 650 has a very bright Neon Blue LED that shows the status of your alarm.  It’s usually located on the dashboard

This is a great visual deterrent as it shows your vehicle is protected

  • Keyless Entry – On vehicles fitted with central locking or total closure, the doors can be locked and un-locked and windows closed with the remote control.

Much better than fumbling with the keys

  • Remote Control – Firstly, they look great they are a slim black remote with a brushed aluminium front and you get two of these.

It has a low battery warning tone.

This gives you plenty of time to pop in a new battery

It’s got a remote range of up to 100 feet.

Great for finding your car in a car park

  • Its anti snatch anti grabbing – This is to stop professional thief’s recording the transmitter signal.

The Clifford recognises it as a recording and ignores it.

  • Remote Siren Silencing – The alarm can be set silently without the confirmation chips.

Great when parking late at night

  • Engine Immobilisation – The Clifford Engine Immobiliser is the best that money can buy. Its a micro computer connected into two vital circuits and when activated, stops the engine from being started

Absolutely no one can illegally start your engine

It will also automatically arm after 20 seconds.

So if you forget to arm the system, it will immobilise the engine for you.

  • Audible & Visual Arming and Disarming – When arming or disarming the alarm, the lights flash and the siren chirps.

This gives you proof you have activated or deactivated the system.

  • Digital Dual Zone Proximity Sensor – This is for Interior and Exterior Protection and is the best sensor on the planet. It’s a radar sensor and senses movement inside and outside the vehicle, that’s why its called dual zone.

When armed, any movement inside the vehicle will trigger the siren

Great protection against loss of property through the window

And outside it sets up an invisible bubble around it and can be easily adjusted by the driver or turned off if parked in a busy road.

If anyone gets too close it will trigger “warn away” beeps from the siren.

  • Doors Boot and Bonnet Protection – All doors the boot and bonnet are connected to the alarm and when it’s armed, if they are opened or a forced entry is attempted, the siren will automatically trigger.

Even the most ardent thief can’t get passed this.

  • The Smart Siren – Firstly, you have a choice of fifteen different siren tones and six sound patterns.

This identifies it’s your vehicle and not someone else’s

And secondly, it has its own battery for back up.

If your battery is unlawfully disconnected by someone lying under the engine, the siren will automatically trigger.

120 decibels is its volume

The maximum the law allows, and you’ll hear it

  • Remote Courtesy Lighting – When you disarm the alarm, the interior lights come on until you start the engine, or  for 30 seconds.

Very useful at night

  •  Auto-lock – This feature of the Clifford automatically locks the car as soon as you start driving. It also automatically un-locks should the vehicle lose power.

Protection against car-jacking

  • Auto Arming – You can programme the Clifford to automatically arm the alarm

This means your vehicle is never left unsecured

And instant by-pass with one turn of the key easily stops the auto arming

Making it ideal when filling up. 

  • Pin Code Over-Ride – Your alarm has its own unique pin code of 4 numbers. You can change them if you want to a favourite date or to match your bank pin code.

In the event of an emergency, or a lost remote control you can completely de-activate the alarm and immobiliser.

This means you won’t be stranded

  • Valet Mode – Valet mode is accessed via a console mounted button switch and enables you to disarm the alarm but not the immobiliser. This is de-activated by entering your pin code. When the engines turned off, it automatically arms the immobiliser again.

If the vehicles being serviced you don’t have to leave you remote.

  • Smart Auto-Testing – Every time you arm your Clifford, the system automatically checks its self. All trigger inputs, the boot and bonnet circuits, the door circuits and sensors are all tested.

In the unlikely event it finds an error, the siren will make a series of chirps and these identify it.

So you always know its working

Smart Auto-Testing can be used as or in conjunction with a turbo timer.

  • 8 Event Recall – This amazing feature enables you to see why the alarm went off and what the last 8 actions were.

Great for knowing what went on

All Clifford G5 remote controls can be programmed to operate a second vehicle.

Very convenient for friends or partners as you only need one remote

  • Black-Jax Anti Highjack Recovery – This is an exclusive feature and is a safe and reliable response to car-jacking which is fast becoming a very serious vehicle crime.

When set, using your unique pin code, its fully automatic.

You hand over your vehicle avoiding any danger, and Black-Jax allows the criminal to drive away, leaving you in safety.

As soon as the driver slows down for a turn or stop, the engine shuts down, the siren activates and the lights flash on and off.

Your vehicle is completely immobilised and when faced with this the thief has no option other than to leave the vehicle.

This means there are no high speed chases and almost immediate recovery

Skinz Soundproofing

Good car audio begins with properly treated doors and panels. Flexing metal panels and expanses of plastic cause a myriad of issues with car sound from bass cancelling road noise to annoying shakes rattles and vibrations. A flexing metal panel can effective sap the energy away from your speakers by creating inter-cancellation at the rear of your speaker while other surfaces can produce unwanted nasty resonances which colour the sound. Our sound deadening and panel lining products go as far as possible in eradicating these products while our wave diffuser will absorb the sound issuing from the rear of your speakers to prevent that sound reflecting back into the speakers. The importance of sound treatment such as the Skinz range should never be underestimated.


Connection Cables

Hanging electronic equipment together is a sophisticated science in itself. Connection was introduced by Audison in the early 200’s and consists of ranges of products for wiring power to amplifiers, amplifiers to speakers and head units to amplifiers. Cables and interconnects are available in three different grades depending on how discerning the listener and their choice of equipment is. Just as you wouldn’t run your Ferrari on Gin you wouldn’t connect your Audison Voce speakers to a Voce amplifier with bell wire. Aside from the quality requirement, when dealing with the extreme current capabilities of large amplifiers to use inferior power wiring could prove extremely dangerous.
