    Hello, So I recently just got my new car which is a 2010 mazda3 hatchback with the bose system and I absolutely love it. I was wondering if anyone has gone the complete aftermarket route because that's what I'm looking at. I bought my car used and when I got it the audio doesn't...

    I have a 2018 3 Touring and am looking to add an amp (65w x4 RMS) as well as componet front speakers. Rear speakers are already replaced.

    Hey I’m new to the community, I have a 2010 mazdaspeed3 and was looking to hookup subs to it. After digging a little deeper I noticed the previous owner had wires ran under the carpets and in the dash for when he had subs in it.

    I just discovered JL's new OEM integration processor, the FiX-82, and I was wondering if it's worth it. Has anyone installed one yet or does the stock head unit not have that much eq and time processing added that it isn't worth it. I have only installed a sub in my '15 i Touring so far and was...
