Default Anyone do an install on a 2010 -2013 Camaro with Boston Acoustic Factory Amp

I've got some questions in regards to factory integration and I can't seem to find the answers.

Wondering if the best place to grab the inputs for the processor is pre amp or post amp.
Also wondering in either of those situations if the outputs are full range or if they are modified, as well as if there is a "loudness" curve built into the system (sounds like it is) and if that is programmed at the headunit vs the amp.

If anyone could start here by answering these questions, that would be fantastic!

(oh, and I don't want to lose back up sensor beebs, chimes, bluetooth audio, etc... - is this done at the amp. If so can I keep this functionality while removing the amp?)

THanks!

Yes, you'll lose them.

Tap post amp.

Not sure if the signal is flat, though.

I've left the amp in with all the speakers disconnected. Then used an old hands free kit Speaker to do the chimes/nav stuff. That would not work for BT streaming though.

I used the Speaker outputs from the stock trunk amp going to a jl cleansweep, and the system sounded just fine. New fronts, rears, and subs with a couple amps, and we didn't have any noise issues and all of the functions still worked. This install was last year, but I think someone makes an amp replacement kit now.

Check out SubThump - , they sell a harness kit to remove the factory amp, it looks very complete. Should make life easy.

I'm doing an install soon with some stuff from subthump. My buddy did some research before he bought and their stuff seems legit. Hoping for the best.
