What DSP do you have? Does it have built in high to low converter? I don't think there is a plug and play for Mazda (that I'm aware of). I have a Mazda 3 2017 and i had to cut the outgoing speaker cables from after original amplifier and then connect it to my Mosconi DSP 4to6.hi all master,
can anyone show me the wiring diagram or socket which is plug and play dsp to original HU for m3 2018 come without bose system.
Hi Mike,We found that the front door speakers cut off at 45 hz, so we tapped the rear door full range speaker leads for the sub. The sub crossover is set at 80 hz.
Dont forget a dsp or for a streamlined dsp with built in amp route.3 options.
1. line out converter
3. Amp that allows high level input.
For plug and play simplicity, The PAC is the better option.
Iam PAC into a cheap EQ (mounted under glovebox for access) then into my amps,
Depends what kind of bass you are after, adding bass for sound quality or bass for sound pressure level. That leans more for spl bec of the ported box. If you want just more bass, a simpler 8 or 10 inch sealed would do, that unit will easily drown your stock speakers output.Hey what do you guys think about this rockford fosgate p500 12" powered sub? https://www.crutchfield.com/p_575P50012P/Rockford-Fosgate-P500-12P.html
Just looking to add more bass with this + and LC2i? Or should I got for the lc7i in case I want to upgrade the rest of the car speakers down the road as well with an amp?
I have the same vehicle/trim, would you or anyone else be able to point me to that thread? I had looked into upgrading a while ago but I'm revisiting my options.I have 2017 Mazda 3 GT with Bose audio which was sounding good stock. However wanting more bass I added the Rockford Fosgate P300 sub and that improved the sound to the point I am completely satisfied. Upgrade itself was relatively easy DIY. I followed instructions from the thread on this forum and everything went smoothly. Did not cost arm and leg too.
you mean the basspro hub from jbl? Nice! How bout share some pics of how elevated/protruding the sub is? Yeah our donut tire rim has a recessed part unlike other donuts that are flat. TyHad the JBL 11" spare tire subwoofer and LC2I installed in my 18' GT hatchback Bose system. What a huge difference. Just now that the subwoofer sits a bit high so you need to raise your rear cargo mat. I had the shop that put in my subwoofer build me one.
Nice, cant go wrong with jl amps 👌🏽
Have you demoed the alpine powered sub? Because if you haven't, you might just feel its not enough as all under seat subs are. Sub freq requires air to be moved, with under seat subs, there aren’t much air to be moved due to the enclosures size to fit under the seat. They will just sound like mid bass.I have a 2017 m3 hatch GT and originally wanted to go to the audio dealer to install Alpine's PWE-S8, but put off for a few weeks. Then earlier last week, went to Alpine's website and saw they have a PWD-X5 (a DSP, power sub plus power for 4 more channels)...Anybody has that installed and could comment on its sound?
