    Good headunit for running active?

    I'm going to be running active with some 165V30's and a FI Q, obviously i need something with 3 preouts and active crossovers but I'm not sure what to get. I would prefer it to be Alpine but that's just me. As long as it accepts USB, displays the track name, accepts steering wheel controls and has good SQ I'm happy. I was looking at the Alpine 117ri but that has all the ipod stuff which i have no interest in so i don't want to be paying for something that i aren't going to use, same with bluetooth as it degrades the SQ in my opinion.

    Anyone help me out?

    Just had a look at this Alpine Electronics of America, Inc. and it does't say anything about the 9887 being USB compatible but then apparently the 9887 had more "sound tuning" options?

    I would prefer USB to be honest, don't want to be burning CD's all the time and i don't like ipods. I might just go with the 117ri if the crossovers and time alignment or whatever it is called is good.
