Radio Wiring Harness Diagram

I need a copy of the oem radio wiring harness diagram for an 05 GT Package RX8 (Bose System).

If someone can post it up - that would be great. Hoping to get this done this weekend, but if not... i'll just grab it from the dealership next week.

Thanks

Save this link... very useful:
http://smrmicro.com/rx8servicemanual/
You can save each page as a PDF (in case the site goes down for whatever reason... good to have a hard copy).
I believe what you are looking for is under Electrical in section J.

for a Bose system, you need to use the pre-amp out on the back of your stereo. do not just wire up the harness that comes with your stereo or you'll double-amp.

06 RX8 Bose system

I can't verify every wire but I just finished splicing a line out converter to my amp to power my sub and I can tell you that these worked for me and I couldn't find my exact diagram anywhere. I even had my Mazda dealer email me the diagram they have for the bose system and not all the wires matched up it was interesting. Anyways hope this helps, and remember to splice in before the amp otherwise your signal will be weak and it wont sound right. Cheers!

Left Rear (+) Purple

Left Rear (-) Pink

Right Rear (+) Blue/White

Right Rear (-) Blue/Black

Ignition Switch Wire = Pink/Black
