New Stereo

So the factory stereo in my truck is crapping out on me, so I'm gonna get myself a new head unit and probably speakers. Never really been too big on having a sub but wouldn't mind having a little bit of bass. Any suggestions on a good setup?

I have always run kenwood head units. I believe they are the best and most durable. I had a flip out touch screen I changed out of four different vehicles before someone finally stole it. Never had a problem with it. And a little bass wise people are using the kicker comp box and speaker. They are cheap and not too loud. Just enough to piss off the wife sometimes but not enough to piss off the neighbors lol

I have a Pioneer 5500 it Rocks! Great sound easy to use and the install is a piece of cake. It has Bluetooth plays movies and has a backup camera.

I have had quite a few Alpine decks in the past but this new double din set up is great.
