I'm guessing they'll just make the Kicker kit (single-sub, sidewall mounted) part of the audio package.

Because the 6th gen is still about two years out and Camaro needed an update.

Standard procedure.

I'm not buying in 2014 but was hoping to see kinetic blue as an available color. I will miss IOM for sure. New yellow? Hope its the transformer yellow metallic but not likely.

I completely agree. I'm planning on buying a 2014 1LE in Impact Orange....or I was.

I was really thinking with the changes to the front and hood that it was going to look great in IO. Now I'm not sure which color to get. I'm against getting red so it only figures that they offer three red colors....

Well I'm still 10 months from placing my order so I have time to think about it.

I think its frakin' hilarious that GM is still using an Audio system for a current build car from a company that has been out of business...Boston Acoustics.

Unless something happened very recently Boston Acoustics is still a functioning company.

The convertible list a CDIS (color driver information system) however that option is not listed for the coupe. Anyone seen the CDIS? When can folks order a 2014?

Probably pretty similar to what's going into new Buicks.

Thanks for your reply, I have not seen that display. I think this year I will be able to purchase a Camaro ZL1. I have been saving to buy.

I should have clarified...Boston 12v is done. Happened last year. They are selling off what they had made in late 2011 is what I had heard....thus, once it's gone, it's gone.



Bye to Boston Accoustics, who will be left standing...

Boston Acoustics Exits Car Audio

February 23, 2012 by Amy Gilroy
Filed under Car News, Home Page Featured, Industry news

5 Comments

Boston Acoustics, a 23-year fixture in the car audiophile market is exiting the 12 volt aftermarket as of April. The company will instead focus on its home audio products including speakers, soundbars and radios, and will also enter new home audio categories, said Sanjay Sharma, national sales manager of Boston Mobile Audio.

Boston AcousticsThe maker of GT amps and PRO speakers informed reps and key accounts this week, that it will exit the market by the end of April. It has retained its manufacturer reps through that time period to ease the transition, it said.

Most of Boston’s inventory will be kept by the company to honor warranties.

Sharma said of the market exit, “This was not an easy decision. We had analyzed both businesses and we were really focused on growth. As a result we wanted to sharpen our focus on product categories related to the home.”

Boston Acoustics is owned by D&M Holdings which also owns Denon, Marantz, McIntosh Laboratory, Snell Acoustics and other brands.

Unrelated but i'm in love with the 2014 Silverado.

Good job Chevy. Pound for pound it's the nicest full size truck out there.

Obviously I'd take a raptor but that Siverado is amazing.

The color options for 2014 is very limited and not very exciting. Here is the long list of what colors were available for the 1st Gen. What colors would you bring back?

I like Hugger Orange and Le Mans Blue

Does anyone know if we will be able to purchase a 2014 hood and whether it will fit the 2010-2013 cars??

You'll likely need the '14 front fascia as the hood lines seem to be wider on the '14.
