1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata: Problem. Solution.

1997 Mazda MX-5 Miata

Monticello posted earlier about the passenger-side speaker vibrations in the Miata, the result of a blown speaker. The speaker's done, all right, flatulently flapping around between its magnet and surround. But I found a solution: balance hard left and some old mono recordings, like these solo funk-outs from James Brown's band.

Since the A/C is also busted, the Miata is definitely gonna make you sweat.
