Deck Choices for classic Cadillac. 8813

First off. Don't bother asking me what kind of sub I'm going to be using. There is no sub. Haha. Anyways. Looking for a deck that doesn't look like a bloody christmas tree. I want a nice clean cut, high quality deck. Of course, I know nothing in the realms of car audio... That's why I'm here. (Now home audio that's a different story).

My Caddi has a velvet blue interior, with a woodgrain bezel. If any of you have been in an 80's fleetwood, you know what I'm talking about. Anyways. I'm looking for a classy deck.

This mac, sells for almost as much as I paid for my car. As much as i'd like to get it, i want to see what else is out there.

Patiently awaiting your replies,

DaCarlson

Also, using Boston Accustic 6x9's and 4x6's for front and rear. Quality is a must.

DaCarlson,
It may be hard to find a deck that doesn't light up like a Christmas tree.

My first question is, does your definition of "classy" include the word "modern"?

This Clarion deck looks classy, to me at least. Its a very subjective thing.

I'm of no help.

That isn't to shabby. I'd really like it if i could swap out the red led's to blue. I like the black one in particular. I'd prefer a more simplistic looking deck. After all my car is 27 years old.

Thanks for the prompt reply and suggestion.

Nope. But a tube deck? now thats cool. I really like the second one. The tube, sorta looks out of place.
