1991 Acura NSX: Blast From The Past
March 07, 2012
Here's something I haven't used in a long, long, long time: a trunk-mounted CD changer.
But since the NSX doesn't have satellite radio or an iPod hookup, it was time to try the trunk-changer out.
Loading the CDs into the changer was pretty easy. Figuring out how to get the CDs to play was another story...
It's well documented that I'm no genius, but if you look at the stereo's head unit, there's nothing about the CD player on any of the controls.
So I consulted the manual (no, I'm serious) and found out all you have to do is press the Tune/AM/FM button/knob on the right-hand side and the lights for the CD player suddenly become illuminated on the screen. It should've been so obvious.
Everything was pretty self-explanatory after that.
The CDs are susceptible to skipping over harsh bumps, though, which is something else that we're not used to with today's modern cars. Also, it takes the system forever to catch up if you fast-forward through a bunch of tracks.
Hey, what do you want? It's a 21-year-old car. I'm just glad it at least plays CDs.
