I'm not sure if we're too hot on Mazdas.

When you say separate speaker, do you mean the unit is out the car?

If it's in the car and the lights on the front panel come on etc, then it's not a bad earth. It must be the speaker connections.

Check for an amp in the system.

Refit original unit, check output levels with a multimeter at both the headunit output and at the speaker.

when we bought the car there was no radio in it, i think i may take the card off the door and check the connection there.

Some models did indeed have an external speaker amp. What model and age is it?
Go and find it and check it has power and connections.
