2004 Mazda 6s Sedan w/ Bose Stereo Information

Front Doors
6.5" door panel cutouts
stock speaker size: 156mm
Impedance: 2ohms

.75" tweeters in door sail panel

Drop-in aftermarket replacements:
6.5" components with .75" tweeters

This a quite common size and should be very easy to get a good set of aftermarket speakers.

Rear Doors
5"x7" door panel cutouts
stock speaker size: 5.25"
Impedance: 2 ohms

Drop-in aftermarket replacements:
5"x7" coaxials or woofers
5.25" coxials or woofers

Once again these are very common and should be very easy to get a good set of speakers.

Subwoofer
9" cutout
stock subwoofer size: 9"

Modified fit replacements:
Any sub woofer with a diameter under 9" should mount into this unit fine with an appropriate custom adapter. This would include most 8" subs that I know of. However, if you are going to run the subwoofer with out an enclosure behind it I would highly recommend that you ensure the sub is designed for infinite baffle setups. I have installed an 8" in the rear deck and the sound quality is very much improved over the stock sub and can provide a decent amount of bass without taking up much trunk space.

Okay so if this is correct than the BOSE sub inputs are sourced back to the amp not the headunit. So if I want to run 2 amps I'd have to find a 4ch with a preout for the subs?

Has anyone already posted the pin out of the factory amplifier and not the head unit?

I don't want to waste the time writing it up if its already been done.

I am trying to use the existing wiring for the Bose sub to hook up an Infinity Bass link. The Bose sub harness is in my hand and I have the following wires:

blue\red stripe
black
yellow
brown
black\orange stripe

I have searched this forum and the internet for an hour and have not been able to find a clear answer on what each wire is for. I assume the following:

blue\red stripe is constant power
black is ground
yellow is remote power
brown is rear +
black\orange stripe is rear -

Can anyone please tell me if this is correct???? I hooked the bass link up using this assumption and the amp did not power up. Any help would be appreciated.

i remember there being a "how-to" for this on mazda6tech since that's how i was able to do mine.....

http://forum.mazda6tech.com/viewtopic.php?...aftermarket+sub

although, this was for an '03 and i'm not sure whether the wiring has changed since then.

Thanks for the link skeurton! It helps some. The wire colors are a little different but it explains why my amp did not power up. It looks like I need to run a line from the battery to my trunk for constant power. You would think that the bose amp would need constant power and I could use that! If anyone else has more info for me it would be appreciated.

Thanks again! I'll give it a shot with using a wire directly to the battery along with the wires in the trunk. Once I get things working I will post exaclty what I did so this is crystal clear for everyone else.

I can't see why not. I used to hook aftermarket HU's up all the time to nissan bose systems. DOn't know if you would need a premium sound interface like others do.

Hi All,

Just stumbled across the site and havn't looked through in great detail yet as it is getting a little late
in the night.

Can I ask, how simple is it to install a Factory Bose system into a Mazda 6 Limited??

The Mazda 6 Limited 2004 only came out with a single HeadUnit and I came across a complete Bose
system that I want to install.

Generally speaking when you install factory acceories most or atleast some of the wiring looms are
already in place, is this the case on the 6 as well?

Any heads up would be appreciated!!
