I would suggest a double din radio if you have the money. Easy to modify the radio bezel to fit one in.

I prefer alpine so I would just alpine headunit, speakers and amp.

I agree you can't go wrong with Alpine speakers and amps but their headunits are lacking what they used to be. Also, not necessary to keep everything the same brand.

Do you already have the Pioneer subs and are they in a box ?

If you're looking for amp recommendations for those subs we'll need to know which version they are. I believe the Champions came in a dual 4 ohm and a single 4 ohm or dual 2 ohm version. Decent subs though. Should get the job done in that cab.
