Just to make sure you confirm the right connector type before you proceed to buy similar products. The PAC AOEM-MAZ2 which came with orange harness is Type A connector. My CX-3 came with Type B connector
What i did purchase was the one that I put the Link for.
It did take that Larger Plug from the TAU, and piggy backed back in via the Pac unit, maybe there is a difference in the type of Kits available, is yours a Pac?
My Sub Install is done, all is working
Thought I would share something that I have just completed in my CX3.
I had been searching for a fair while on various sites in the hope that someone had done a similar install in their CX3, but seems very limited in what to do, and where to run Wires to Tap into Speakers for a High Level Input on an Amp.
I came across the little Item called a PAC AOEM-MAZ2, it is a interface that Allows Replacement or Addition of an Amplifier in Select Mazda Vehicles.
The CX3 was not Listed as being one of the cars that it would fit, reading through some of the Reviews and Questions people have had success in plugging it into a CX5, Mazda 3 & 6, also seems to work with or without Bose.
This is the Item I bought from Amazon this is the Link to it.
This Unit simply plugs into my Factory Unit it then gives 2 x sets of RCA's and also a Amp Trigger Wire.
Please see above link for photo's of how it plugs in, Photo's, and reviews, etc.
I have just Installed a Fusion Black Edition En-ab1102 10" 750w Active Sub + Amp and thought this may be very helpful for others that may be wondering what they can do without having to take the Door Trims off and chase Speaker Wires, when this really is so easy.
This Uploaded Picture below is of the Factory Box in my RHD Australian CX3, its located on the Drivers Side, down towards the Footwell, whereas if its a LHD they are saying its behind your Glove Box.
This has worked in my Australian CX3, hopefully it might work also for you.
How much better does the stereo sound with the Pac kit and Fusion sub.
You will still be limited by the stock speakers etc but at least they can focus more on all but low bass.
I used the PAC AOEM-MAZ2 with a Pioneer TS-WX120A sub that I put under the drivers seat.
The PAC AOEM-MAZ2 was truly plug n play. The Pioneer sub only required a 10 amp fuse, so I used an unused fuse location at the fuse block. It made a big difference in the sound quality.
