#24 of 58 AUX working with RSES
Dec 21, 2010 (10:26 am)
I bought a 2008 CX-9 Grand Touring with Navigation and RSES. As I had read on these forums I did not expect the AUX input to work since the car had RSES. But to my surprise when I press the MEDIA button it switches between RSES and AUX.
I thought a switch was need to make it work but this appears to be factory functionality.
Do I have a later date model when Mazda had resolved this issue? In any case, I am glad it works!

I bought a cx-9 with a nav and rses also. However, I cannot figure out how to use the rses with audio (without headset) for the kids in the back and listen to the radio myself in the front. Does the CX-9 have the ability for this or am I stuck listening to what the kids are watching. I have 3 kids and they cannot share one head set, nor will I shell out additional money for more. Thanks for your help. My manual does not indicate how to do this.
#27 of 58 CX-9 DVD AUDIO

I just bought a 2008 grand touring CX-9 with a DVD/NAV.
While my children are watching a movie in the back, is there any possible way for me to allow them to listen to the DVD in the back speakers while I listen to the radio in the front speakers. I know this is allowable with the headset on. However, I have 3 boys and only one headset. Therefore, I am only able to use the speakers.

I don't think the MAZDA CX9 has this feature as far as I know.

If you go with an aftermarket DVD I think you can do this. I put in an Alpine unit (around $500, plus maybe $200 installation) and I think it can run independently of the stereo. Overall, glad I did this rather than go with the original equipment DVD.

We're looking at a 2011 GT-AWD with factory moonroof + NAV, but also want RSES.
Has anyone had experience with aftermarket headrest DVD-monitor set-ups for the CX-9? I've seen a few different types, including an Audiovox, but am wondering about performance & reliabilty.

I was just quoted $1600 for a rear system, two DVD and wireless...BUT I haveseen sets with the DVD PLAYERS already in the headrests for $299...But not wireless, the one guy says they are not a "clean"install; as you have to plug into an outlet and wires running everywhere; I am NOT handy but this is too high; the dealer told me they can get it done for $1800; and the one guy said only ONE company can match my black leather and they ONLY sell two seperate DVD players, not one main and a monitor so I have to pay more for that to...help!!!!! I am in Atlanta. Dogdoc

Do yourself a favor and just get portable dvd player and head rest holder instead. I thought about getting after market dvd player installed as well but lot of places hire people who are not skilled enough and some of them can actually mess up your new car. I bought Panasonic 8.5" portable dvd player that has long play time and headrest player holder for less than $100 together. No tearing your car apart and if something breaks, just buy a new unit which is dirty cheap now days vs taking it back to store to get the unit replaced + installation cost all over again. I can move it to other car if needed as well. So glad I didn't go with after market install.

i got some inexpensive headrest dvd players through Amazon and had a professional install it for a grand total of $500 combined. works great although matching the color of the headrest to the upholstery may not be exact. i can live with that since it saves me $500+.
