I just bought a 2012 Mazda3 Sport hatch and discovered that the lower driver front door speaker is blown and flubs. Checked ebay and was aghast at the prices for a used replacement. $80-100 for a used speaker that's probably no better than an aftermarket one that costs half that price new.

Which begs the question.. Does anyone know the specs of the oem bose speaker? It appears to be part# GS1G66960B (but i may be wrong?). Looks to be round and have some amount of offset on the mounting flange. ✅2009 2010 2011 2012 13 Mazda 3 6 Front Door Lower Sound Audio Speaker Bose OEM | eBay

Hmm... spent a few hours in search results and read that the bose speaker is only 1 ohm.. seems rather difficult to replace with a similar spec aftermarket. Though, I imagine you could put in a 2 or 4 ohm that has 90+ sensitivity and have similar volume as the bose. Thoughts?

Has anyone done a speaker replacement while leaving the bose amp & head unit (purely for simplicity)?
