  1. Vibration from bass, help

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    This is really irritating me, car is just about a year old with only 5800 miles on it but has always done it from day #1 , I have not taken it in as I just had no time. However, going to the dealership next month for my regular service. What happens is that when the bass gets to a certain tone...
  2. WTF Loss of bass after infotainment system update?! HELP!

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hey guys, I have a 15 Mazda3 GS hatch, that's the mid-level trim here in Canada, so it's the one with the 6-speakers. I was having "ghost" issues with the infotainment where it would navigate and click on its own, so I went to the dealer to have a software update done. I figured why not since...
  3. window/panels vibrating during high bass

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    I am pretty happy with how the BOSE audio sounds, delivers a good enough kick (although I wished it would be a bit tighter and mids would be a bit more accentuated, I understand that there is no mid EQ), but overall it's quite a good system for stock. The problem is that I like to listen to my...
  4. HORRIBLE vibration sounds coming from door driver side door handle and dash

    What's up guys this is my first post on this forum! I'm hoping that being a part of this will help me take care of my car better. I like to listen to trap music, therefore am really into a lot of bass. I have a '15 5-door w/o Bose speakers and they're starting to make parts in my car vibrate...
  5. Non-Bose Headunit + Polk dxi651 = No bass

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I installed some 6.5" Polk dxi651 on my 14' iTouring with the non-bose system and they have less bass than the stock speakers. I'm not great at soldering, but they seem to produce sound -- I'm just wondering if I screwed something up installing them or these speakers kind of suck or they really...
  6. effect of door insulation on bass response

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Ok you audiophiles....I want to add some sound insulation in the form of foam or the like to my door cavities. I've already added dynomat type material to the door skins for vibration dampening, but now am working on exterior noise reduction. Will adding material to the door cavities reduce...
  7. Audio Quality - Bass

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Audio quality with the Bose sound system is hit or miss. I blame it on the mid bass peak that sounds exaggerated with some music genres. First off, regardless of the genre, FM is simply muddy and lifeless. I don't blame Bose or Mazda for that, although it could be a tad better. In any case, loss...

  9. Audio - rear sub

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Has anyone with a 2010-2013 Mazda 3 w/tech pkg upgraded their rear Bose "sub" without a HUGE audio upgrade? I find that the so called "sub" is small as heck and doesn't really put out that much bass. I would like to hear everyone's opinions. Thanks.

    Anyone use one of those 6x8 to 6x9 adapters yet and know if they fir behind the door panels ? It looks like they will but i haven't tried yet. Maybe cut out the panels ?

    I was wondering if anyone knew if you could adjust the bass level on the bose subwoofer that came with the tech pack. The bass sounds like crap now unless i have my ipod playing.
