What ups everybody!

I have a question about sound systems especially for the mazda 3. I have the basic model 2005 mazda 3 and I want to put a sound system in my car. I will be ordering the Grom Ipod adapter soon and I just want a sound system that is reliable and suited great for a mazda 3. I'm trying not to spend more than 3 hundred dollars for a whole system and I was just wondering if any of you guys have any recommendations like what brand I should get, and such. Links to sound manufacturers or sites with cheap systems will be much helpful. Hope to hear from yall!

are you wanting speakers, sub and amp? if so, good luck. i have a cousin in the wholesale biz and so i sell to some people around town and even at those prices, what you said, assuming you want what i mentioned, is pretty impossible.

You'll find a lot of different opinions on where to start. Some may say you need a new HU, but you've already invested in the GROM adapter and you can get good sound using the OEM HU.

If I had a budget of $300, I would start with an amp and some decent 6.5" component speakers to upgrade the front. You might find a decent 4-channel amp, that way if you get a small sub later, you can power it with the same amp.

Another possible place to start with your budget would be to add an amp and a sub, while keeping the existing speakers running off of the factory HU, and upgrade speakers later.

Thanks man!

Yeh I plan on keeping the OEM HU for now just so I can save up for other upgrades later. So I guess I'll start by looking for an amp and try looking for a sub somewhere around my budget.
