Transform your Dodge Ram's factory sound system

You've got a great set of wheels, but something's missing: the sound of the Dodge factory radio leaves a lot to be desired. Low power, less-then-ideal speaker placement, and dialed-back bass all contribute to the unhappy situation. This Soundgate Powerstage system upgrade by Kicker will transform your Ram's stock radio and speakers into a high-fidelity sound system capable of giving you full, accurate, and richly-textured musical pleasure. And it does it without changing the look of your Ram's interior or dash.

It plugs into your factory wiring with no cutting

The heart of the system is the Powerstage processor/amp module that plugs in between your car's stock receiver and speakers with the help of a Ram-specific wiring harness. Kicker's technicians measured the acoustics of the Ram's interior, then developed a program to get the strongest and cleanest audio performance possible from the stock speakers. The Powerstage module breathes new life into your vehicle's factory system, automatically correcting for the limitations of the factory speakers, then adding plenty of power so the speakers can sound their best.

Of course, there's a subwoofer with it

It wouldn't be a sonic upgrade without a subwoofer to bring bass magic to the mix. Kicker includes a custom-fit, powered subwoofer that mounts under the right rear seat. A 200-watt amplifier provides the power you need to feel the bass from the 10" sub in the front seat.

Do it yourself and save

This Soundgate upgrade package comes with all the hardware and brackets you'll need, and all the wiring is pre-cut and terminated to help make the installation easier. Step-by-step, illustrated instructions make this sonic upgrade a fun and rewarding project.

Important Note: This upgrade package will only work with a Dodge Ram Crew or Quad Cab with the basic audio system. It will not work in in a Ram with the premium (Alpine) sound system.

Features

Overview: Kicker's SoundGate PowerStage factory audio upgrade kits are designed to fit in specific year/make/model vehicles. The PRAMCQ09 is compatible with select 2009-2012 Dodge Ram crew cab and quad cab pickups (please confirm fit with the Crutchfield vehicle selector). Included with the system are a square 10" subwoofer in a custom enclosure, subwoofer amp, multi-channel amp with custom mounting brackets, and all the necessary cables and adapter plugs to power the amplifiers and connect to the factory radio and speakers without cutting into any of the factory wiring.

Multi-Channel Amplifier: The multi-channel amplifier is rated at 50 watts RMS x 4 channels and powers the front and rear factory speakers. The amp also has a built-in computer-optimized, 32-bit DSP (Digital Signal Processor) programmed specifically for the truck's interior and factory audio system. Custom brackets are bolted to the amp to mount it out of sight, above the parking brake. The included wiring harness has adapter plugs that connect between the factory radio and factory harness, so cutting/splicing/testing the existing wires is not necessary. The included power harness is connected to the accessory lug in the engine compartment, and specific wire routing instructions are included.

Subwoofer: The custom enclosure is loaded with a single 10" Kicker subwoofer, powered by the included 200-watt amplifier. The included wiring harness has adapter plugs that connect to the multi-channel amp's harness (for subwoofer signal input) and the power cable is connected to the accessory lug in the engine compartment. Specific wire routing instructions are included, as is all necessary mounting hardware.

Note: The subwoofer is mounted under the rear seat on the driver's side. If the truck is equipped with storage covers under the rear seat, the driver's side cover must be removed to install the subwoofer.

Electrical System: Both amplifiers are designed to have minimum impact on the truck's charging system.

Dimensions: The listed dimensions do not include the mounting brackets (regardless of these measurements, the amplifier mounting brackets and subwoofer enclosure are custom built to fit out of sight in the vehicle):

  • Amplifier:
    • Width: 8-1/4"
    • Height: 1-3/8"
    • Depth: 6"
  • Subwoofer Enclosure:
    • Width: 20-1/2"
    • Height: 9-3/4"
    • Depth: 16-1/4"

Crutchfield response on Tuesday, March 18, 2014 After investigating, we were able to confirm that this product is not compatible with the newer trucks. We updated our database to reflect this, so now it's only listed with the correct vehicles.
