Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I've had this system hooked up for a few weeks now and wow it really does rock!! I was skeptical at first because of the lower power numbers and the high price tag but after listening to it I have no regrets. The 10" sub produces tight, clean bass and is very punchy, and does not overpower the rest of your music. Everything blends together nicely creating a very well balanced system. The reason I'm giving this system a 4 out of 5 stars is because I think for the money spent Kicker should throw in 4 new door speakers. I decided to replace my 4 door speakers with JL Audio TR650-CXi speakers and they cleaned my mids and highs right up. I wasn't about to listen to my expensive system through GM's cheapo, paper cone, factory speakers. It sounded ok through factory speakers but it sounds great through the JL's. Installation was pretty simple, the sub box fit flawlessly and as did the amp under the dash. I was able to tuck all of the wires neatly out of sight and other than the sub box under the rear seat my truck looks completely stock. If your considering this Kicker Soundgate Powerstage system don't hesitate, you will not be disappointed.
Pros: Great bass System is well balanced Clean and easy installation Sounds amazing
Cons: For the money spent it should come with new door speakers
