  3. Bad Bose Amp?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    2011 Mazda3 w/ Bose system- both of the front door 6.5" speakers are "dead"... no sound at all. The weird thing is Tweeters look like they are spliced off the 6.5" line and they kinda work. Not great sound but they are working. All other speakers appear to work fine. What does that sound like...

    Hi. I have the PAC line-out system to connect an amp to the stock head unit, a 2 channel amp, and component speakers.

  11. Anyone know value of Bose Amp and sub-woofer

    2004-2009 Mazda3 Audio & Electronics
    After the 6-disc changer head unit crapped out on my 2008 S GT I decided to replace the amplifier and sub woofer as well. I went with a Kenwood Epsilon head, an Alpine four channel amp and a JBL sub. This is not a "blow your hair back" system but a nicely balanced and very clear system. But I...

    I'm going on a long trip in my 2010 GT S with the premium bose audio package.

  20. Amp remote power cuts out when i-stop restarts the engine

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I've replaced the bose amp with a kicker 800.5 amp, and it is all great with one issue. When i-stop shuts down the engine, when it restarts the engine, the amp loses power for a moment and the sound cuts out for a few seconds. I've tried tapping the grey "acc" wire coming out of the TAU, and...
