Got the system in both,the MX-5's is a 200 watt system and I think the 3 has a little less power but they sound very comparable,the 3 has more front to rear fade and the MX-5 is mostly front and side, it has a couple small speakers between the seats that don't add a whole lot but they do help, but when the top is down you lose a lot of sound, but with the top up it cranks, I'm assuming there is a big difference between the hardtop over the softop,acoustics and all. I have read mixed posts on the system in the MX-5, some complain about it some like it, all I know is its a lot better than all the systems my past cars came with. I'm happy with it

Those are not bad, some even receive weather band.
We had 2 of them, still have 1 actually. 6CD plus tape is nice because it's so flexible, you can use those tape inputs for all sorts of devices.

The Cassette would be very nice as I have so much material from the old days that I can't get on disc, although a lot of old stuff recently is being released on disc( companys buying out copy rites and such) but I have a lot of old radio recordings of live shows and things of that nature. not worth much to most people but priceless to me....

Also if you have books on tape. I'm not sure if the library has gone to CDs yet.
#26 of 41 CD player ate my CD!

2006 Touring with stock CD player. It plays the CD fine, but the ejection system goes 'click-click-click) and the display shows "CD out" when in fact it is still in the player. As there isn't a 'manual eject' the CD is stuck.
I am reading the forums and this appear to be a common issue. Is there any preventative maintenance I can do in the future? I am having the player replaced as it is under warranty, but if it happens again I may opt for a non-stock brand.
Other than that, the car has been great so far.
#27 of 41 Mazda Miata Radio Problem

My 1990 Miata's radio works fine on ACC. It stops as I start the car. (only FM AM is OK)
Anyone ever had that problem?

Weird - maybe the battery provides enough juice but the alternator does not?

I finally found a bad ground on the antenna.
The radio started working fine but still fails at times.
My next step is to check the ground on the radio unit itself.
#30 of 41 Sirius / XM module
Jan 06, 2009 (1:24 pm)
Hi- Just bought an '06 MX-5 Grand Touring. I noticed that there is a "SAT" button on the radio console. After quizzing the dealer, I was told the car did not have it, but a $350 plug in module could be ordered and it would cost about $100 to install. Does anyone know about these, and can one be obtained elsewhere cheaper? Can a person with avg car mechanic skills install it? I traded in a Protoge which had an after market XM receiver (dash mount). I suppose I could always install it in the Miata, but having the indash unit would look nicer. Thanks!

A service provider connected cables backward and blew out the battery, main fuse and radio/tape player on my 1993 Miata. I found the fuse box under the dash and replaced the fuse for the radio and cigarette lighter. The lighter works, but the radio is still dead. Is there anything else I can try, short of replacing the radio? I was told by Mazda that they no longer make replacement radios for 93s.
