    Front driver and passenger side speakers

    I have a 2014 CX-5 with the Bose system. I was cleaning my car one day and noticed the front drive and passenger side speakers were really low and bassy sounding. Anyone else experience this?

    That's because those are 8-inch subwoofers. I played some 30Hz test tones and they get pretty low.

    Hard to call an 8" speaker a subwoofer. Actually just a dedicated woofer.

    For gen-1 CX-5 Bose system it uses "a pair of 9-inch (23cm) Ndģ woofers -- one in each front door -- delivers deep, low-frequency output from a package much slimmer than conventional speakers."

    Not many people have replaced Bose 9" door woofers as they're more to be involved even a custom-made speaker adapter is needed. There's also a TSB for these 9" woofers as they may start having noise caused by corrosion.

    Oh 9-inch huh? Even better deeper bass than an 8-incher.

    No my passenger side just rattles like a blown speaker listening to songs with a lot of bass. Never abused them with excessive volume either.
