    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    I'm doing some upgrades on my new Mazda Axela 2.0 Metero Grey Mica. This is the thread I show what I've done so far and maybe it should have been inside this section instead of interior and appearance since I did a shitload of sound deadening and audio...

    Non-Bose system. Upgraded Alpine Component speakers in the front only.* 2018 Mazda 3, but most Mazda's have been using this TAU (Tuner Amplifier Unit) for over a decade now. Even with the car off, in accessory mode, once the infotainment system boots up, a high frequency (10kHz) hiss appears...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    Hi all, I have a Mazda 3 GSX 2015. I've noticed recently that my front dash speakers (left + right) don't seem to work anymore. They don't seem to be outputting any sound from music or from a phone call via Bluetooth. I've tried various tests such as playing music loud and soft, adjusting the...

    This is for the 2018 Hatchback, but likely similar for all generation 3 models. Sorry in advance for the long post. First some simple questions. I would appreciate informed first hand responses instead of the typical "I read somewhere..." Question 1: What is the efficiency of the non-Bose...

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Well, its just one of those things thats either a quick fix.. or its going to cost me some bucks: Its to my understanding the previous owner had a "problem" with the speakers on the passenger side front and rear.. and I confirmed that with checking the fade front back left right.

  10. Bose vs. OEM VW Speakers

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Audio & Electronics
    Had to rent a car today and we ended up getting a 2018 VW Atlas SUV. The speakers in it blow away the Bose speakers that came with my car, and I have the higher end 9 speaker surround sound system. The VW has a ton more music clarity and the surround sound is far more enveloping than what Bose...

  12. Speakers sound like they are underwater?

    2010-13 Mazdaspeed 3 Audio & Electronics
    Hi all, A few months ago we picked up a 2006 Mazda3 hatchback for an extra car. Looks like the previous owner took decent care of the car, FWIW. I do notice that at higher volumes, not MAX level high, but rocking out on the highway levels, I find that bass heavy songs make the vocals sound...

    2016 non-Bose system. I would like to upgrade my speakers, but I'm no audiophile and my budget is tight. As well, car audio is a foreign land to me. In this thread, it was mentioned the dash tweeters could be replaced with 3.5" speakers. The door speakers would be replaced by a woofer. Can I...
