Mazda likes to simplify things in their audio system design so the head unit should have 4x pre-amp level outputs to the BOSE amp which you can just route directly into the pre-amp inputs on the MS-8. Not sure if you're planning on running external amps or not, but as you might know if you plan on using the MS-8s internal amp for your speakers it's not all that powerful (20Wx8 @ 4 Ohms & 30Wx8 @ 2 Ohms). Might be worth thinking about keeping some of the BOSE speakers if you don't already have replacements for all of them just so you have matching power. The MS-8 will work its magic and make a difference regardless.

But to answer your question I'd think if your factory speakers are in proper working condition you shouldn't have any trouble selling them.

thanks, guys. The MS-8 sounds pretty complicated, but it might be worth it in the long run. The bose sounds fine for now, just curious about the future. I will probably just add a sub for now and see how that goes.
