Often they more advanced systems, complex wiring, factory amplifiers, and other features that can make installing aftermarket component difficult.

Harness works perfectly. Was a real pain to stuff behind my stock bose HU in my MS3. Seemed like a quality product now I am enjoying the sound.

Does What It Says

November 10, 2013

This product DOES work in a 2010-2012 Mazda 3!! It does what it says...makes it possible to run a system off your stock head unit. I own this product but, I wouldn't recommend it. Save yourself some time and a little money and accept the sound you ready or have or give in and replace your head unit. The sound quality is not good and there is a delay in the product that tells the remote to turn the amp off, therefor when you turn off your car your system with violently vibrate for about 3 seconds. Very annoying and kind of embarrassing. The sound: everything works like it says but the sound is somewhat "bad." The quality is horrible. If you like listening to your system less than half way turned up then this is the product for you. I could barely tell I had a system if I turned it up too loud. I removed the product immediately and broke down and bought a 2 din CD player. I chose 2 din so the aftermarket wouldn't look so out of place since the factory radio is so large. If you buy this product and love it, more power to you, it just wasn't for me. I'm all about sound quality. The only props I give this product is keeping the factory look. Other than that, it's a pretty sad buy.

It works!

October 18, 2013

It was pretty easy to install once I figured it out since the instructions were not particularly clear in my scenario. I have a non-bose system and this let me keep my factory head unit while I installed an amp and sub. I took off one star for "Ease of Use" for the instructions not being quite clear.

Excellent plug and play to add a sub to my mazdaspeed 3!!

September 17, 2013

I didn't want to chop up wires and i wanted to have full steering wheels controls for my OEM system. I used this adapter to wire in an amp and sub into a BOSE OEM system with no problems at all. Truly plug and play!!!

Great Product!

September 12, 2013

Purchased about 6 months ago for my 2010 Mazda CX 7 non-bose head unit. Stock speakers had good bass but wanted that extra boom boom. I installed the unit myself in less than 1 hour. Sure it could be done faster but I worked slow not to damage any trim pieces around my head unit. I also made time to clean up and strap any loose wires. Once got to the back of the unit; basic plug and play with the PAC AOEM-MAZ2. Ran my RCAs and remote wire to my new powered sub waiting in the back of the CX 7 and it worked perfect. No static over the speakers or anything like that. Great Product! I would suggest this product for any do it yourself type person. Easy install, no surprises and best of all it worked. Note: This did not interfere with my Bluetooth features either. They worked for me without any rigging on my part. Good news, since I use Google Play over Bluetooth for most of my music. it was my main concern in purchase after reading some reviews.

Does exactly what it says on the tin.

June 14, 2013

If you need line level output from your head unit and it lacks this feature this little box will do the trick. I particularly liked the adjustment screws to individually adjust the volume of four channels. The only drawback is that the adjustment is highly sensitive. You have to tweak them with feather fingers. It doesn't produce any extra noise and is small enough to put anywhere.

Works as Advertised; Compatible with Bose/Non-Bose Units

January 25, 2013

Contrary to popular belief, this is designed specifically to use with Bose. The PAC AOEM-MAZ2 is nothing more than a PAC OEM-1 Bose interface (black box) with a Mazda harness adapter. But it will work with non-bose radios as well. Just make sure to lower the voltage on the OEM-1 unit when pairing to amplified inputs. I own a 2009 Mazdaspeed3 with Bose. Most are aware that Mazda made a minor change in harness PIN arrangement from 2008.5 Mazdas and up. In my application, everything works flawlessly except for the remote lead. My amps are signal sensing and did not require it. Installation was straightforward. I had to max out the voltage on the OEM-1 box as Bose HU's put out a very low voltage signal. The noise floor is still a little high but tolerable. The low frequency roll-off (inherent in most Bose HUs) is still there but not as aggressive. For the price I feel this is well worth the cost. Good job PAC.

Works in 2012 Mazda 3 Skyactive

May 5, 2012

This was no doubt the easiest way to get signal to my amp without cutting any factory wires. Works great and hides behind my radio. I have installed this in my 2012 Mazda 3 Skyactive Hatchback and would recommend anyone looking to go ahead and buy it. It's great. I ordered on Thursday and it was in my mailbox on Monday.

truly plug and play

November 19, 2011

Despite the advertising, this worked perfectly in my Mazda 3 2010 non-bose factory head unit. No connection issues at all, just unplug the connector on the rear right of the head unit and plug this device in. You do not need to fully remove the HU. I ran my RCA cables and remote turn on wire up through the center console and everything fit nicely in a slot behind where the rear of the HU connects to the dash.
