Hi guys, I know there are many threads covering this subject but I couldn't find anyone facing problem I do.
I just got my first car month ago, 2002. Mazda 6 and few days ago I found that there is a water leak. I removed all interior to dry out and I decided to add amp end sub when pretty much all interior is out.

I like what KoukiS14 did http://forum.mazda6club.com/car-electronics/226674-bose-subwoofer-replacement.html so I wanted to do the same.

So I removed the rear deck I found this (photo in attachment).
I knew there wasn't sub in the back but I was kinda hoping there is cable for the sub there, but there wasn't cable either.
I have some minor knowledge in electronics, so I think I can install it If someone would tell me what do I have to do.
Also, I don't have cd changer or anything, just a basic radio and 4 speakers in the door.

Adding a sub is more than just plug and play. And on our cars w/o Bose, we basically have to start from scratch, not that the bose method is much easier/ cheaper...

In my future sub plans, I plan to cut out that circular plate, and somehow mount my desired sub within the hole. To me, the biggest PITA is going to be removing that plate. The rest is just time consuming.

As for getting the sub to actually play music, you either have to replace your factory stereo, or install a LOC to give your amp a signal it can use to power your sub.

Of course you need power from the battery, and you need to run all the needed wires and all the stuff you really dont think about when your system is all done and bumping.

Also, from first hand experience I wouldn't suggest using the rear deck as a mounting location for anything. I had my amps suspended on a hinged rack using threaded rods and it was SQUEAKY!
