Look what I found on the Mazda Japan site.

I was looking for info on what the sound system was going to be like on the 2014. Or more specifically I wanted to know what I was going to change if I get one. 11 speakers had to fit somewhere.

9" speakers in the front doors? That's different.

That's a lot of speakers! I'm very happy with the Bose sound system in my car.

How many speakers are in the Sport and regular Touring trims? Any diagrams with the location and size of the speakers? Are people in general satisfied with the basic sound system?

6 speakers on non-GT trim models, if memory serves.

Sure is... They are woofers, according to this picture's legend.
The rear door speakers (5) are full-range.
(7) is an "8-channel digital amplifier"
(2), (3) and (6) are mid-high units, with the bottom note about (6) that in station wagon it is in a wall of the luggage compartment instead of the top shelf.
At least that's what it says there, because the picture looks like something opposite: the largest speakers look full-range, the mid-sized ones like woofers...

Wow - great find! In my opinion, although it looks impressive, I really don't like the 'premium' sound of this Bose setup. It's just ok... and I'm not even that much of an audiophile. My 09 Chevy Traverse had much better sound... I just want good, rich sound that envelopes me... I'll probably upgrade later on, once I know what options I have, since I want to keep the center panel, and don't want to add any visible stuff in the car (amps, subs, etc.), unless well hidden...

From what I read audiophiles do NOT like Bose. They say it's all name and no game.

Anyone with the 2014 GT model with the Bose system can respond?

While for the most part that's true - this system far surpasses the old Bose systems in the Mazda 6.

Bose are simply normal speakers tuned again and again and again. Since selling out to China they've degraded in quality but are still Bose.

Can you find much better speakers for the car? Most likely - Is the stock sound quality poor? Not at all.
