The Boston Acoustic system in the 2SS does not have a subwoofer. You can add the subwoofer as an option and yes...since it is two 10" subwoofers it will take up a nice chunk of space and add some weight (i'm guessing it will be a plastic molded speaker box and relatively light amp/speakers so maybe 30-40 lbs extra).

Personally...I'm sticking with the Boston Acoustic system and if I require more bass I will put my own subwoofer system in that will take up less space and likely sound much better.

Is that the Boston Acoustics that GM will be offering or is this completely different?

If it is BA than thats what I'm taking home.

its not boston accoustics. the dealer installed subs are mtx. that is what these are. boston accoustics are the speakers inside the cabin.

1. Yes it is.
2. Those wheels are the 21" accessory wheels available directly from GM.
3. No, not brushed aluminum... matte black paint.

actually if you look at the wheels from a direct on shot, they are the brushed aluminum but they seem to have a translucent black clear coat over them so when you see them from a different angle they are black. compare the pics. you can tell the back parts and the sides of the spokes are darker than the front. which indicates they are from the polished rims.

Nice editing by LSXTV on the videos. They used Dale Jr's trunk shot in both videos. Either way, I still don't see GM's sub option looking like that. You lose the trunk/rear seat pass-through plus you can't exactly put stuff on top of the amps, thereby making the trunk nearly useless.

well i dont really see any other choice for it. look at the picture on my last post. thats the picture they showed us from indy. that is what the system looks like. the way the subs are , yeah its going to kill trunk space. its 2 10" subs. there isnt alot of room for it and the best place to put it is in the middle. if it were 2 separate 10" subs you could do 1 on each side of the trunk. but they come together and sit in the middle of the trunk up against the rear seat.

john cox as i recall said that was not the actual piece. it was just a placeholder to show 2 mtx subs and by no means the final production piece.

ok if it isnt it then it is probably pretty damn close. you really dont have too many options for 2 10" woofers in a trunk without using up alot of space. you need the right amount of air space for the subs and that makes for a pretty decent size box with 2 of them. ill bet the only place for them is in the middle like they show on this black camaro.
