Finally, I have installed both front Focal speakers. Yesterday, I have installed the second one and I have realized, that something is off. I have seen a video on Youtube, about adjusting amps and a guy, used an app to check the speaker polarity(Polarity checker). That was way to cool.
I have tested it with mine, and of course that the driver side speaker, it was reversed. Now, it sounds way(!!!!) better than before.
I have also found out, that my living room home theater center speaker(I have one in the bedroom as well), it was reversed as well.
Polk Audio PA660.4 amp. Did not use bass blockers. Has it's own crossover(PS165FX).
Pulled off the Blizzaks and put the stock Toyos back on. I only put about 5K miles on them this winter. Looks like treadware on snows is still basically at 13/32.

I think the D mode keeps it in gear a tad longer - so I am trying manual shifting and my shift points are always before 2000 RPM - I hope thats ok.
Washed and waxed her. This is the first time that I've been able to wax since we bought the car back in December. Damn, that titanium sure sparkles and pops in the sunshine!

I usually shift around 2500-3000 RPM when in manual shift mode. That's also how I shift when driving the Speed3. I think shifting at 2000 RPM is fine, because like I said, if it was bad, the car will not allow you to shift at that point. Racing Beat noted that part of Mazda's fuel economy strategy is to shift at around 2,200 RPM, so you're not really far off.
