An optional BOSE sound system with seven speakers and CD-changer is available as well. It employs electronic frequency control and signal adjustment technology to deliver high levels of musical enjoyment even driving with the top down.

Premium Technology - iPod*-Compatible Audio System

With the Mazda MX-5 Roadster Coupe, an audio system adaptor is introduced for iPod compatibility, a premiere for Mazda in Europe. The system is able to play, for instance, MP3 music files from Apple’s iPod digital music player using the normal audio controls of the car or the steering wheel (latter, depending on market). You can fast-forward, rewind, repeat, and even use the Random Selection function. For installing and charging the iPod, there is a special jack on the passenger side in the glove compartment.
