I have an alpine 9886 in my truck and I like it, but due to the gas mileage in it, I upgraded to a car and now looking for a new aftermarket radio to put in the car, Im keeping the head unit in the truck and will use the truck in the winter (michigan weather) but because it is a few years old, I would like to put something new into the car now, but dont know what is good out there now, I dont like the a/v head units (the one that looks like a mini computer) so I would like something that still kinda looks like the 9886, but better, any suggestions?

I have a sundown amp and an fi sub in the back, if that helps also, honestly I would like to find a head unit that makes the most clean sounding music and the hardest hitting music also

Why don't you just upgrade to 149bt?I have a 149bt,and it sounds alot better than my old cda117,and also more features.The tune-it is pretty cool too,or you can go with the Pioneer 80prs which is a good SQ deck too.
