    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I'm looking for 6.5" components in the front and coax in the rear doors. What's the sweet spot for price/performance? I'll have 120W @ 4ohms available to each speaker/set. I'm willing to spend $300/set, but I'd really prefer less than that. What has $300 sound for less?
