The alpine unit in my 1.6 is performing fine nowadays. No crashing or hanging.
Its just that the sound quality is pathetic. It gives a good punchy bass at high volumes that shows it has the potentional but at medium levels it sounds absolutely crap.
Now medium is the level I listen to while driving but it sounds hollow and annoying.
I have turned on the loudness and put the treble down and fiddled with various settings but its no where near the sound I get in my 8th gen civic which after years of use and abuse sounds rich and mellow.
