I doubt very much if the sound had anything to do with this incident. Probably first of all I would assure the safety was OFF! And it probably vibrated against something like a seat belt buckle or something causing it to discharge. When it comes to the Gang Banger "Good SKS!!!

You're absolutely correct. It wAS on Mythbusters... And they couldn't get the sks to go off no matter how much they tried. I think they ended up putting the gun in a room with a hand grenade and then it went off.

If you attached an SKS to a jackhammer, used by construction crews to break up concrete, you MIGHT get it to fire. Having your stereo turned up? No.

Mythbusters busted this a while back. I forget the ending, but I know that even some crazy booming system wouldn't set it off.
If your worried about it, don't drive around with a chambered round in your SKS with the safety off.

a properly cared for gun that hasnt had someones brother's cousin's sister's boyfriend do a "trigger job" on it, will not go off unless someone sticks a body part in the trigger guard and yanks.

the mythbuster episode the stacked a bunch of sks in a circle that they modified to have super light triggers and set of some explosives near them. they got exactly ONE to go off by the shockwave of a powerful explosion.

for that to happen in a car stereo sound system it would turn anyone within 15yards to a red gooey paste. and you prolly still wouldnt set one off

No way. Not without something bad wrong with the triggers going on.
