Hello, i moget not be the only one that has had this idea or plan but I’m planning or at least trying to upgrade the speakers in my mx-30, I feel that it needs a bit more than what comes with it (I have the standard and not the Bose edition)

has anyone had the same idea and knows where the speakers are located and the size?

Getting to the thought that changing the original speakers is probably near to impossible. Now my thought is to install a subwoofer instead. Only question i have is if someone have done it, and if someone has were there some hole in the firewall that you could route the battery cable to the amp?

I personally don't think you should ever tap directly onto the battery for accessories. You should check the fuse panel to see if there are any spare slots or tap off an existing feed. Secondly you need to link into the audio system. Have you checked where the amp location is for example. I cannot locate an mx30 wiring diagram to assist you. My temptation would be to go to a professional audio fitter to avoid any potential issues.

I have the stock stereo and not the bose edition, the amp is located under the passanger seat. Took this out of a CX-30 forum and the amp looks and is placed in the same position as mine, the speakers position and size is exactly like the mx-30 so my conclusion is that the stereo for cx-30 and mx-30 in identical. i will probably take it to a professional shop but here in sweden there isn't any "professional" shops, it's mainly companies that sells speakers, subwoofers etc and has some private experience with installing speakers etc. Only thing im questioning right now is the firewall/battery cable.

Agreed. Two weeks in, standard audio is terrible on the Sport Lux.
This is my first mazda, previously a volvo driver for 15 years. Perhaps I've been spoilt.
I'm regretting the purchase now that the novelty of the car being 'virtually silent' has worn off.

Has anyone upgraded there stock speakers? Thanks for the info a schematics Vstmatteus. I will look into it once I receive my mx30. The first thing I noticed is the 'bad' stereo lol, but I'm also spoiled by bmw. Pioneer and hiphonics sell subwoofers with built in amplifiers which will probably do a lot to improve the sound. They also take up very little space under one of the front seats.

Also, whenever installing an aftermarket amplifier, always route your own cable and fuse it near the battery! The fusebox under the dash wasn't designed to handle that kind of extra current and you can seriously cause electrical problems. I installed a lot of amplifiers, winches and offroad lighting, they always feed directly from the battery. Look for the cable loom on the driverside. There's usually space to tuck in an extra wire or 2.
