Mazda CX-9 Audio, iPod, Bluetooth, MP3, AUX questions

    I have to agree that the Type A audio system is not bad. I had a Bose System in my previous Infiniti FX35 and while it was better, the Mazda base audio system is not too shabby. The only issue with swapping out the base audio system for an aftermarket audio system is the INFO button. I like toggling the information that it provides and not being able to have that functionality on an aftermarket system would be a big issue for me.

    Crikey, that is exactly the reason I would never swap to an aftermarket head unit. On a separate note, I am waiting to come up with a little extra money and swap out the stock speakers with a set of aftermarket name brand poly-carbonate dome spekaers. I hear from another website that doing this upgrade is like night and day difference in sound quality from a Type A audio system...thats where my money will go instead of an aftermarket head unit.

    Dude, let me know which speakers you end up with. I realize the Type A has 6 speakers only. The Type B has more speakers. Any chance we can add speakers to where the additional Type B speakers are located?

    Not sure 100% if our Type A CX9s are prewired. My sense is that they are not because I have removed my center stack where the "centerpoint" speaker would go on a Type B equipped CX9, and I did not see any taped wire connector in sight, there was just an empty hole where the centerpoint speaker would mount to... and I am definately not about to check on the third row pillar speakers because according to my Mazda Shop Manual the entire third row (among lots of other things) needs to be completely removed to access that area. So with that in mind the only speakers I will be updating will be the ones on the doors (4), the two dash tweeters seems to do a good job IMO.

    That's probably enough to convince me that it isn't prewired. Thanks. Let me know what speakers you end up with and what sizes for each door and the dash.
  • I have a question, how can i disconnect sirus radio for connecting aux imput again, is that a possibility?
  • I've just paired my Mazda with my Nokia E72, and it dials calls via voice control nicely. But, when I try to answer incoming calls, I can pick up the call, but then it drops the it suddenly.
    To answer, I click Answer on the monitor or click a button on the steering wheel. Am I missing something?
  • are you sure it drops? perhaps it just switches to your phone's earpiece and not thru the car. my iphone switches to the phone only (no car) if i answer by touching the phone...if i answer by touchscreen or steering wheel, i can talk thru the mazda.

    After updating to iOS 4.2 on my iphone4, I can now use the play/pause/skip fwd/skip rev functions on my cx-9 stereo including steering wheels control to play audio over bluetooth. Track info still doesn't show up on the display but we're getting closer with each update.

    What year/stereo do you have in your cx-9?

    Would you mind telling how you got this to work? I am wanting to set this up in my wife's 2007 she just got.

    as soon as you press the phone button, turn up the volume on your sound system and you should be able to hear the prompts. if not, try saying "setup" and then turn up the volume.
  • I recently bought a 2010 CX-9 with Bose and Nav. I have noticed that when I call my wife on Mazda, I hear this buzzing sound on my phone, while she can hear me fine. Looks like there is some sort of issue with the BT inthe vehicle. Anyone seen this issue?

    The buzzing sound may be your phone interfering with the audio system. Try moving your phone away from the dashboard.
  • I purchased a 2010 CX9 with the Audio B system (bose no nav 4.3" screen) and when I bought it the RDS was working; meaning it streamed the name of stations, artist and song. I had to take my car in for a repair and ever since then I can not figure out how to turn the RDS back on? Can someone help me with this? I have read the manual over and over but just can't seem to figure it out.

    I have 2007 CX9 w/Bose, GPS, & BT:
    1. If you have compatible phone, turn on phone & stow; use button on wheel & mic overhead exclusively for incoming & outgoing;
    2. A CD is a CD & will work in 6-disc changer;
    3. iPod & any MP3 player works nicely in jack in center stow compartment.
    Tip: read your Bose, GPS & BT instructions, especially to train BT commands.

    I have a 2011 CX-9 and iPhone 3G. I can par phone easily, but can not import contacts. What is the difference between pairing and importing? How do you import? Thanks.
