i was thinking about a single 12"... i got ahold of an ID Max 12" just gotta get a recone for it... im just not sure on what to do with a box... i was thinking of going for SQ with a possible IB design... but i also thinking of a ported box for SPL... just not sure on what kind of box to build...

IB setup not good idea in a hatchback. You might want to check the mazda6 forums also.

i got a mazda3 witch in my opinion is way better then the mazda6... and IB/ or trunk baffle which ever you want to call it in a hatchback is def worth it if you know what your doing...

for example this is req's car... him and i did this install... IB install with two IDQ15's sounds fanominal we hit a 139.2... and there not SPL subs what so ever but it is most def a design i was thinking of... but as i said earlier i dont know just yet...

honez. if you want some good ideas, go register here and take a look at the build log forums. theres lots of cool **** in there.

http://www.diymobileaudio.com/forum/f9/

and like i said, there are lots of cool speakers out there to pay with. this forum is more geared toward the younger user base and SPL. DIYMOBILEAUDIO is geared toward an older audiance and SQ. those are generalized statements, but they are factual.

take a look at this site too, www.hzemall.com - the gallery has tons of cool stuff, including this and its sorta the idea i talked to you about - but we are going to do it a bit differently.

take a look at this too, its a hatch, cool ideas - we could use them a bit i think.

here is a build log of the bg neo3 tweets i was talking to you about, the pictures are not working right now, but give it a few days and maybe they will come back up - from wat i read they seem to have come out real nice, and we can modify the sail panels in your mazda for them to fit quite nicely.

http://www.diymobileaudio.com/forum/f9/bgneo3-a-pillar-build-up-t4486/page2.html

not like we are going to do this to your car, because i refuse to - but it is one of my favorites and i would love to listen to this car if i had a chance.

http://www.hzemall.com/our_gallery/installs/2005_toyota_echo_second/install.htm

i know this is a mazda 6 not 3, but check this out - pay attention to the door panels, same as mine pretty much. and on top of that - check out the A pillar build. we are going to do about the same thing. and lastly, the amp rack - thats kinda like how i did the amprack for keizers amp on that fiberglass box. we can build that amprack in the floor the same kinda way while not using the factory plastic crap.

this is a fantastic idea but i dont know if i like the docking station being right there in front of the environment controls... i was thinking about that little cuby whole on the left side of my steering wheel that would most def be a good place to put an ipod adapter or some shtuff like that

thats a sweet install but as you said for your GTI i dont wanna loose my spare but the other with the ID under the spare is absolutely genius

yea def wont do that s*** to my car... way to much effort for what i want to do
and i cant make out the pics for the A pillars


i know this is a mazda 6 not 3, but check this out - pay attention to the door panels, same as mine pretty much. and on top of that - check out the A pillar build. we are going to do about the same thing. and lastly, the amp rack - thats kinda like how i did the amprack for keizers amp on that fiberglass box. we can 2build that amprack in the floor the same kinda way while not using the factory plastic crap.

as you said it is a mazda6 not a 3... and im pretty sure that it would not work in my car for the way he mounted the amps but the sub... possible not sure but...
