The Boston Acoustic system in the Chrysler offerings is a very good system. I think I would go for the premium system though, as I would rather leave the audio mods to the pros and focus on performance/ appearance mods.

It's gotta be better than current "blose" systems. Is it safe to assume that it will have an IPOD input?

I believe it stated USB ports..however in other vehicles similar in the GM family the USB port had some difficulty pulling files from Ipods unless it states ipod capability...Which i did not see in the specs provided yesterday.

I assume apple does some shiot to their files when transfered to the Ipod/Itunes.

from my understanding of the web chat the files must be mp3's to work... and yeah apple encrypts the files so they cannot be transfered to more than 5 computers but idk if that means they will work or not.....

JohnFitzpatrick:
"I believe any jump drive can fit in the USB. It will have to have MP3 files to be read, however."

If you buy songs from Itunes, they are encrypted (mp4) so they'll only work on your computer/ipod. BUT, if you rip your own CD's into your computer, and than load onto your Ipod, they are MP3's.

ok so here is the wiki definition of Mp4 or MPEG4 :

MPEG-4 Part 14, formally ISO/IEC 14496-14:2003, is a multimedia container format standard specified as a part of MPEG-4. It is most commonly used to store digital audio and digital video streams, especially those defined by MPEG, but can also be used to store other data such as subtitles and still images. Like most modern container formats, MPEG-4 Part 14 allows streaming over the Internet. The official filename extension for MPEG-4 Part 14 files is .mp4, thus the container format is often referred to simply as MP4.
Some devices advertised as "MP4 players" are simply AMV video capable MP3 players, and do not play MPEG-4 part 14 or any other MPEG-4 format.

They overcharge by hundreds of dollars for subpar, over protected, basically useless pieces of hardware.
Subpar I really disagree with.

Overprotected? I guess they just didn't want Bill Gates to steal something else from them.

although in terms of engine soundtrack, the Camaro wins hands down.
At least we agree on this.

According to POWERFREAK it's just an encrypted mp3 file.... hold on and i'll look it up...
I was actually wrong...itunes songs are actually m4p files (i guess they are different than MP4's).

Also, if you do a google search, you'll find plenty of m4p to mp3 converters to get around the encryption, or you could just burn them to a CD and than rip them as mp3. Plenty of ways around the "security"...from what I hear ;)

according to the info they sent to the dealers,
  • Available Bluetooth allows for wireless communication with most Bluetooth-equipped electronic devices inside Camaro
  • Available USB port allows for the download of music from a USB device
  • Available Personal Device Interface Module (PDIM) allows for the use of the redundant steering wheel controls with an auxiliary device
So even if you have all your files from iTunes on your iPod, I'm guessing you can hook your iPod up and use it with the stereo and also control it from the controls on the steering wheel.

Or, you can transfer mp3 files from something like a flash drive to what I'm guessing is a hard drive and listen to them w/o having to keep a iPod or any other mp3 player in the car.

Sounds pretty sweet to me!

Octane - minor inaccuracy in your info

Tweeters are not in A-Pillars, they are mounted in the triangular "shark-fin" patch that sits on the door... the designs you see in the current press material are not quite representative of final production appearance but you can see them in the interior photo that's been released
