Putting aftermarket head unit in 2006 2.0 Sport with Bose
« on: January 16, 2018, 05:26:59 PM »
Hello all,

Apologies 1st post is a beg for knowledge! I’m fitting a Kenwood single din hu in my 2006 Sport but the only adapter for a the hu I can find that list that they fit a 2006 Mazda 3 but only non-Bose equipped cars... I think the issue is that I also need to ‘de-amplify’ the signal that comes out of the hu so that it will work with the OE Bose amplifier.... but the only kits I can find that are designed to do this with Mazda OE bose units say that they are compatible with 2009-on 3s, or the RX-8, or all NB and NC Mx-5s... do any of you know if any of these will work, and if so, which?

Any help at all much appreciated, I’m totally stumped!

TIA

Doug

Well, for anybody who ever has the same problem as me, the one you need is the MX-5 one... weirdly you have to hacksaw the iso plug into its two halves to facilitate fitting the signal reducer that comes in the same packet, but hey, it works now and I’m happy!
