    very nice how are you running your audio? straight from the puter to the amps?
    No I have it running straight to the Head Unit and using a PC-ALP AUX in adapter. (since the Mazda HU does not have AUX In). It works great..... Now my nest step will be to make the XM PCR sound better with the Optical Mod.

    Brunation, did you have the Nav system and replace it?

    A guy I work with just bought a Mazda 3 and it has the nav system but I don't think the monitor is VGA (anyone know if it is?), he would be very interested on how you achieved this.

    Thanks,

    Troy
    Done!

    No, I did not have the Nav system. It was not available when I boght the car, and as far as I know, the Screen was not VGA. and the system is very limited in features...

    Hey Brun, you got the sound hooked up thru the headunit like me. But I see you have an amp too. Are you powering the speakers with the amp rather than the stock HU? If so, are you still able to use the volume controls on the headunit to control the volume?

    Yes, I am feeding the amps from the HU with a help of a LOC (since the 6 does not have RCA OUT) I have 1 Amp for the Sub and 1 Amp for the Rear speakers. And Yes I control the volume from the HU or the Steering Wheel controls.

    I got one from this website: Navone
    The model # is NE-8V
    It works great and I can adjust the output as I wish.

    Thanks, I think Imma pick one up for my 3, so i can upgrade the speakers, get an amp, and keep the steering wheel controls. Those are the greatest invention ever, lol. Just be able to hit mute at a whim.
