  1. Speaker

    Introduction
    A number of sports cars from the 80s and 90s, were equipped with a BOSE audio system. A popular example, beside the NSX is the Corvette. These systems were specifically tuned to the vehicle to create the typical BOSE sound.

    Details
    Three specifically tuned amplifiers make up the system. Each one build into the speaker enclosures in the left door, right door and the passenger foot well. The foot well amplifier additionally supplies an extra speaker at the rear ...
  2. Airbag (SRS)

    Introduction
    Since its launch, the NSX was equipped with a driver's airbag. As of 1993 a passenger airbag and seat belt tensioners were added.

  4. Radio Head Unit - Cassette Belt Replacement

    Introduction
    Beside ageing capacitors, the NSX's Radio Head Unit suffers from another well known issue in the world of cassette drives: Lengthened capstan drive belts. Typical life time of the belt is estimated to be around 20 years but might vary based on storage conditions and usage.

    Diagnostic
    First indications of a failing belt are functions related to reverse operation acting strangely. Typical observations are auto-reversing instead of rewinding when using skip track, ...
  5. Radio Head Unit - Capacitor Replacement

    Introduction
    The Radio Head Unit of the NSX suffers from ageing capacitors the same way as many other ECUs in the vehicle. Similar to others it takes about 30 years to manifest itself but high temperature and humidity can cause issues to appear much earlier.
    Units that have not been taken care of can become damaged beyond repair and a capacitor replacement should be performed as a precautionary measure even if no problems have been observed yet.

    Diagnostic
    As leakage ...
