  1. Climate Control Unit (CCU)

    Introduction
    The Climate Control Unit (CCU) of the NSX controls heating, cooling and ventilation of the passenger cabin. It utilizes several electrical sensors and actuators across the vehicle to do so:

  2. Radio - AUX-In

    The audio system of the Honda NSX consists of a center dash radio with three Bose active speakers and an optional CD-changer in the trunk. Even though the CD-changer was an option, the required cables were always installed.

    • Four inkan
