I want to apologize in advance for my uneducated knowledge and why I love this site to learn from all of you.
I tried searching forums and did not find what I was looking for, so I am hoping maybe posting a new thread might help.
In a nutshell, I am looking for some more power in my audio system. I have a 2012 LT1 with the Boston Acoustics 9 speaker system. Even though I think it sounds good I feel it lacks in volume when you really want to crank!
It is my understanding that the BA speakers in the car really are not that bad of speakers and that they just lack there full potential because the factory amp is not all that great. So am I correct that saying I should be hunting for a new AMP to replace the factory amp? And I should do this before considering changing out the speakers themselves?
So with that said? For those that have replaced there factory amps could you please tell me what you used when swapping. I also intend to add a bass enclosure. How many channels amp am I looking for? I see 2-4 & 5...Also what is a good wattage? BA seems to be 245W but I guess really only runs like 10W to each speaker?
Is swapping out an amp easy? Is it plug and play...Just remove old amp and plug in the existing wiring from the factory amp into the new one?
I also saw this searching on Crutchfield... would this be recommended:
2010 & Up Camaro Factory Fit Amp Mount
And as far as the adding a sub....What would you also recommend or have done? Single 10" Dual 10's? A 12? And also something else I saw was this... I originally was thinking most subs go behind the back seat but would this type of set up work and sound good? I just liked this side mount idea in case I ever needed to put down the back seat.

In the end I am just looking to add some more crank to my volume and some more thump with a nice snap thump bass not a boomy bass...I am giving myself a $1000 budget for everything but right now I would really like some help, recommendations and advice on starting with a decent amp!
Thank you all in advance for helping this newbie. I really appreciate it
