So far the Kenwood mic has worked great and actually itís mounted in OEM location. Completely out of sight.

I also don't want to spend a ton on doing this. I know, I know, cheap does not mix with quality.
On the subject of a new radio: I don't like how aftermarket radios do not have buttons. It makes it look bare. The T9 has button and looks stock. If I just got a T9 and continued using the JBL speakers, would there be a dramatic change in speaker output? I love the idea of carplay because I have a 30-minute commute, each way.

On the subject of new speakers: Is it worth it to change from the JBLs?

Great radio with cheap speakers = good sound
Great speakers with cheap radio = crap sound
If you're an audiophile you'll want a great radio + great speakers, but then you also probably wouldn't be asking the question either

Get a good headhunt from a top manufacturer with good preamp/power and you will probably be happy. In my last truck I swapped out the Honda headhunt for a Pioneer; because of the Honda wiring I lost my sub but the sound was still better after the switchover
