I'm guessing they went the Boston Acoustic system instead of Bose for some reason, but I won't speculate why. I don't know if it can be upgraded or not.

Well, they do have a rep for getting the most out of any acoustical environment with the smallest equipment "footprint". My 3rd Gen RX7 had a Bose system and it was excellent! That is saying a lot with that car as there was MINIMAL room for equipment in it!

That said, I like the BA system in the Camaro. It may not win any awards but it is still quite nice, with the help of some added bass components...

Alot of times you can just add a little extra bass and change the whole dynamic of the sound, for instance putting in a 10 or 12 inch speaker with about 500 watts is easily added to the car with not much trouble. go to and you can look at prebuilt boxes amps and speakers and the wiring harness you need to be close to plug and play, and it would be so much cheaper than putting in a bose system... i added 2 10's with 500 watts to each one and it sounds great and the bass is not too overpowering... just my .02
