    2011 Camaro Daily Driver Build / Chime In Please

    Hi all,

    Have some stuff sitting around in my garage ready to be used, just don't know what I want to do with it yet and was hoping the experts could chime in and tell me how you would do this system if it were you. Here are the components, music likes, any information I can think of, and maybe a little of my opinion. I am NOT as skilled as many of you here are but I do know good sound, I just wouldn't mind hearing people's input in how to get there the right way.

    Hardware:

    2011 Camara 2LT RS
    Stock Radio (will be keeping this, I hate the look of the Metra kit and don't want to lose anything)
    Rockford Fosgate 3sixty.2
    Diamond Audio D600.4
    JL Audio 500/1
    Boston ProSE 60 for the front
    Dont have rear fill right now ... but more on this later....
    2 x 10" ID10v3's

    I was going to go HU to stock amp, then to the RF 3sixty.2, then out to the amps ... but ... after reading some stuff here and there, my question is would you ditch the rear fill, and use the spare 2 channels on the Diamond D600.4 and go active? Also, in the new Camaro there is a center channel, and wouldn't you know it there's a center in/out in the 3sixty.2 .... so another small amp and replacement speaker for the center? Wonder how it'd sound with a center channel ... a good one that is, not factory.

    So given all this information, how would YOU caraudio.com community ... do this system? I'm all ears.

    Yes, going active would be better than having rear fill IMO. Nice equipment. Any pics of the car?

    No sir, not yet, but I think before I even start I'm getting the camera and keeping a log.

    agreed on going active. and since your already going to be tearing into the doing some sound deadaning while your in there would probably be a very good idea

    Will do some deadening, however not sure with what to go with. A shop near the house stocks Dynamat and Cache' ... the Cache is heaaaavy. Thinkin that may do the trick. Wish I could find someone local who has a lot of experience with doing active systems. Just nervous about initial startup blowing some tweets ... probably keep everything off until preset the 360.2 to very very low and kind of "preset" the crossover/eq settings before feeding signal to the tweets/mids .... that sound like a plan?
