The only ways anyone has successfully stolen a Prius have been either to
steal (or otherwise get hold of) a fob for that car or to put it on a
flat-bed truck and haul it away.
There's another way to steal one; if the driver leaves the car running
and takes the fob with him, someone could drive off with it, but once
they shut the car down, they won't be able to start it up again, so I
don't consider that to be a successful theft.

I've found the relative lack of soundproofing to be a bigger problem
than the audio system. Play something at a moderate level (volume below
20) and you can clearly her it from some distance away outside the car.
External noises are similarly easily transmitted into the Prius. No
matter how good an audio system you put into the car, the intrusion of
external noise will make any improvements of minimal help.
