I have a 2016 Camaro 2lt with the premium 9 speaker bose system. I added a BOSS Audio R1100MK Car Amplifier and a MTX Audio Terminator Subwoofer. I also replaced the rear side speakers with JBL GTO629 coaxial speakers. The rest of the speakers in the car are actually quite good and I don't think they need replacing. Maybe I'm wrong.
My system currently has 11 speakers:

Center Dash Mid/High Range Speaker
Two Mid/High Range Speaker
Two Woofers in the doors
Two Rear Side Coaxial Speakers (JBL GTO629)
Two Rear Deck Woofers
Two 12in Subwoofers (MTX Audio Terminator Subwoofer)

I want to be able to use a DSP on the entire car. However, I am goind to disconnect the rear deck speakers because I have all the bass I need. I don't know exactly how to do this so I created a rough draft sort of plan. I plan on using a D-6.1200 AudioControl DSP/Amplifier.

It only has 6 outputs which would cover 6 of my 9 speakers (not including the rear deck speakers). It also has two line level outputs which I have a bad plan for. I'm going to use one of the outputs and run it to the amp I currently have which would then go to the subwoofers. And I'm going to run the other one to a separate mono block amplifier which would power the center dash speaker. I have no clue whether this makes any sense or if it will work. Below are the plans drawn out because its hard to follow. But if it does this will allow me to time align and equalize each speaker to my own preference.

So my question is what is the smarter way to do this? If money was no option what components would you buy? Two DSP's? Different DSP? Different Amps? Different Wiring? How would you be able to DSP all 9 speakers? Do I need a LOC?

My plan is all over the place so there must be a better way of doing things. I want to have the best audio system I can have so I am prepared to drop over $1,000 on it. I just need help planning. I'm basically asking someone to help me plan an entire audio system. Any and all help is appreciated.

Plans in a higher quality so you can read the words:

Should I use a AudioControl DM-810 and then feed that into two new amps (for 7 cabin speakers) plus the one I already have for the 2 subs?

To do it right, your going to need an audio interface. I use and highly recommend the NAV-TV M650GM unit. https://navtv.com/products/NTV-KIT838/m650-gm.html
This is a plug and play unit that takes your factory radio signal and gives you a full rang, flat signal. It has Front, Rear, Sub, and Center RCA outputs and a fiberoptic Toslink output (if you're going to go with a DSP, which you really should, I would use the Toslink) one fiberoptic cable to the DSP. Simple, clean, un-distorted signal.
This will the your foundation in which you build everything else off of. It is 100% worth it.

That's a good DSP, there are better ones (Helix Mk2 Pro).
It all depends on what you're trying to accomplish.
SPL level volume?
SQ with proper sound staging and imaging?
What's your Budget?
This rabbit hole goes deep and can get out of hand quickly.
You will spend a lot of money pieces milling equipment together, willy-nilly, with no direction or real clear goal of what you want out of the system. Buy it right buy it once.
