    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hey guys! I just bought a 2013 Mazda 3 GS Sky. I dont believe this model to have the upgraded sound system. I've noticed that the bluetooth audio is super quiet. I have to have the volume up to 40 to get to a satisfactory sound level. Is this normal? I was researching online and some people were...

  4. Best Tires for Performance and Quiet Ride

    New Member Introduction & Forum News/Guide
    We have a 2014 Mazda 3 and need to get new tires. It has Yokohama avid S34fv p205/60 R16's on it now. We like the performance but do you know of any tire that would have equal performance and be quieter? The road noise is pretty bad.
  5. 2018 Mazda 3 GT Bose Speakers Quiet

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Hey everyone, I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this but I was wondering if I could get some opinions. I recently purchased a new 2018 Mazda 3 GT that came equipped with the Bose audio system. Is it just me or is the volume for this system really quiet? I have to turn it up to...
  6. Vibrant Ultra Quiet resonator

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    So... I want that exhaust to be heard a bit more but not at all costs! I checked for options and won't go with pre-made axle backs like CorkSport or RacingBeat. Too much $$$ for what it's worth! I want to do something similar to CS but maybe with just one muffler/resonator... So it would be one...
  7. Quiet exhaust

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Engine and Performance
    This seems to be the opposite of most exhaust questions I've seen so far. I was looking to upgrade the exhaust in my 3rd gen 3 sedan to something with a little better flow, but I don't want anything loud if at all possible. Can anyone make a recommendation? I keep seeing that the CS axleback is...
  8. Quiet '14 Mazda3 Project w/Results

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I have the 2014 Mazda3 Sport GT with 18" wheels and Dunlop tires and was sick of the road noise on the highway. I also noticed the noise was quite loud with winter tires on 15" wheels. So, instead of changing to Michelins right away, I decided to put some sound deadener from RAAM Audio in the...
  9. Quiet(ish), High-MPG Axle-Back Exhaust

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 Engine and Performance
    Hey everyone, just got back from Castro Motorsport in NoHo after verifying that my design is physically possible, so I think it's time to start a thread on this sub-project of mine. From the moment I got my Skyactiv I've been looking not to gain power, but to free up as much wasted power as...

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    what is the most quiet tire at a decent price, summer or all season, in either 215x45x17 or 225x45x17, forget Kuhmos I had them on my last car and they sucked. I have seen sumitomo HTR ZIII recommended. Anyways before I spend any money I am looking for recommendations. I am on a disability...
