Absolutely awful, but totally expected, In all honesty, Sonic is a little overpriced on this unit. I installed this receiver in a wrangler that sees plenty of topless time and that is what it's perfect for. No one will steal this bad boy, and it sounds as good as it could with the wind howling in your ears. I don't have high expectations and so far this stereo has met every one of them. Hopefully, it lasts more than a year.
