Installing Aftermarket Audio In a 2010 Focus SE

Hey guys I have a 2010 Ford Focus SE and I am looking on upgrading the factory deck. My main question is what do I need to maintain the upper screen display since all information with the factory deck is relayed through that screen as shown here in an attachment. If I install the new deck, are all displays going regarding audio going to be shown in the deck, or are there converters that route information from the deck to that screen?

Idealy I'd prefer that if the deck is replaced, that the screen doesn't just become a black screen that is there to look pretty. If just aftermarket speakers of good quality were to be put in I don't think the factory stereo is powerful enough to run them with enough power (25W RMS more than likely). I'm not looking to install a subwoofer or an amplifier as I've done installs with just a new deck and a full set of high quality speakers and have been quite happy with them, but I sold my last vehicle that had that done! What's everyone's experience with new installations? Sorry for the sideways photo it was taken on my phone!
