    Lightbulb Anyone for an audio upgrade?

    I'm a little burned out on Z projects so I thought I'd ask any of the OG Gearheads are up for an audio upgrade in August. I can provide the tools, location and some expertise while you provide the new audio gear. If interested (but not necessary!), I also have a nice 4-ch amp that will be up for sale whenever I get around to it.

    Just throwing it out there in case anyone wants to upgrade their stereo system but are too intimidated by the prospect

    An audio upgrade is way off for me. Got to finnish my brake upgrade, a new set of motor mounts, and a roll bar have to come first. By Bose system still works fine so if it's not broke, don't fix it.

    Thanks for the offer, I'll keep you in mind.

    Ha, funny thing. I was about to rip out my factory radio to make space for some gauges.

    I'm intending this for anyone who wants a modern sound system, not an 8-track.

    Hey, Yata.
    Got a quick link to the wiring diagram for the radio and headrest speakers or do I have to break out a 9volt ??

    Hey Yata old buddy, old pal,....

    Miata doors have plugs at the hinge area that make taking doors easier or do they have home runs that must be pulled through ??
    The reason I'm asking is I'll be throwing in a new radio and instead of hacking up the factory dinky little wiring, I'm thinking of throwing in some decent speaker wires. You know, just for the doors as I don't plan on running rear fill.

    It's for the drive to and from the track.
    I have a thing about wearing earbuds for more than a few minutes and being left with my own thoughts scares me. I need the distraction.

    I know, I know. Because race car but my isn't. Yet.

    Put an Enthuza XR on it,you'll think you're driving a race car.

    The idea is to have good tunes in the TOW vehicle............. ah crap, a trailer, that's another damned thing I need to get. Maybe U Haul will be selling some off from their inventory, one can only hope.
