    I no longer have the Mazda and did nothing to it after the audio upgrade. The total cost was about $1,000. I used the AudioControl DQ-61 LOC/DSP placed after the Bose amp to drive my Polk D-class 4 channel amp and powered sub. I left the center channel and surround speakers powered by the Bose amp which enabled me to use all of the Bose features and steering wheel controls. I used Infinity reference components in the front and Polk thin 631's for the rear doors as thickness was an issue. I changed the crossover for the doors higher and put more of the mid-bass in the sub because that mid-bass in the doors eventually will cause rattles. I got the speaker adapters from the specialty company I named in my posts.

    Good luck on your car!!! I enjoyed my Mazda for the 3 years I owned it. My only problem was the amount of road noise on trips and I had to fix a few rattles that developed.
