Custom-built bass for your vehicle

Are you disappointed with the level of bass your factory system provides, but don't like the idea of installing a universal subwoofer and wiring kit? The VSS SubStage powered subs by Kicker are made to fit in specific vehicles, so you get harnesses that connect to your factory wiring, and a sub that's made to mount where your particular vehicle has space. Each system comes with vehicle-specific instructions that guide you every step of the way. The package also includes all of the wiring and hardware you need to complete the installation — that means no running to the hardware store to find a part that you didn't know you'd need.

Ready to rumble

The SubStage doesn't skimp on power and performance — it comes equipped with a 10" square sub powered by a perfectly matched 200-watt amp, all housed in a custom enclosure that's optimized for sound quality. You'll look forward to rumbling lows that can play back the biggest digital drum beat yet also deliver the low-frequency subtleties of a standup bass. Kicker's earned their reputation for making subs that crank out bass you can feel and the SubStage is no exception.

The SubStage SRAMCQ09 fits the 2009-up Dodge Ram Crew and Quad Cab, and the subwoofer installs under the driver's side of the rear seat. It connects to the factory stereo via two wire taps for signal, and attaches to the battery for power. Please identify your car before purchasing to make sure it'll work with this package, or you can call one of our Advisors at 1-888-955-6000 to confirm fit.

Product Highlights:

  • custom-fit powered subwoofer
  • enclosure mounts under the rear seat on the driver's side
  • molded plastic enclosure
  • 10" square woofer
  • built-in amplifier (200 watts RMS)
  • includes instructions for your Ram and all installation parts
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

Vehicle-specific enclosures with subs? Say what?

Instead of the usual sub in a box, the manufacturer creates a molded enclosure that fits perfectly into a convenient spot in your specific vehicle, housing a high-quality sub. Some enclosures even include a built-in amp, for the ultimate in stealth bass. The advantages? You don't lose much space (if any), your sub is perfectly matched to its enclosure, and your enclosure has a factory look that won't tell potential thieves you have an awesome sound system. Doesn't get better than that.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I just finished installing his sub and amp in my 2012 ram crew cab (premium audio). If I could have, I would have given it 2.5 stars. The install wasn't too bad but there could have been more pictures, especially in regards to securing the ground wire and tapping into the factory wires. It took me about 3 hours to install and that includes taking out the factory "sub" and enclosure. I really like that the wiring is all plug and play and the perfect length.

Now to sound quality. This is where I'm disappointed. For the money, I expected better sound quality. The sub bottoms out easily with really low bass frequencies and just sounds bad. It might have something to do with the size on the enclosure. Also, the bass that isn't distorted is not crystal clear. It isn't bad, but it's not crystal clear. So if you're listening to hip hop or dub step, it's not going to sound all that great. However, it sounds pretty good with something not as demanding. I played my normal audiophile CD tracks from Bob Marley and Dire Straights and they both sounded good and balanced.

The most disappointing thing is the problems I have with the sound quality could likely be solved with a smarter amp. Cut the really low bass frequencies out and cut higher frequencies out. The low frequencies is most important because I'd rather hear no bass instead of muffled bass.

Knowing what I know now, I would probably save up a little more and buy the JL loaded enclosure and a JL amp.

Simplicity at its Best!!!

This sub is designed for the Ram 1500 to fit under the rear passenger seat and does so awesomely. And the bass is clear and crisp. Highly recommend this sub for your Ram 1500.

Product Research


Overview: Kicker's SoundGate SubStage factory audio upgrade kits are designed to fit in specific year/make/model vehicles. The SRAMCQ09 is compatible with select 2009 and later Dodge Ram crew cab and quad cab pickups (please confirm fit with the Crutchfield vehicle selector). Included with the system are a 10" subwoofer in a custom enclosure, subwoofer amp with custom mounting brackets, and all the necessary cables to power the amplifier and connect to the factory radio.

Subwoofer: The custom enclosure is loaded with a single 10" square Kicker subwoofer, powered by the included 200-watt amplifier. The enclosure mounts under the rear seat on the driver's side and specific wire routing instructions are included for the power cable and for tapping into the factory wiring for the subwoofer's signal input.

Note: If present, the storage cover or fold flat floor under the driver's side section of the rear seat must be removed. (If there is a storage cover or fold flat floor under the passenger's side and middle sections of the rear seat, those items can remain in the vehicle, with no modification.)

OEM Sub: If there is a factory subwoofer under the passenger's side rear seat, it must be disconnected for the Kicker Soundgate subwoofer to work correctly. The factory subwoofer enclosure can be completely removed, leaving a storage space underneath the passenger's side rear seat.

Electrical System: The amplifier is designed to have minimum impact on the truck's charging system. The amplifier is mounted under the driver's seat.

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: 7-1/2"
    • Height: 1-3/8"
    • Depth: 3-5/8"
  • Subwoofer Enclosure:
    • Width: 20-1/4"
    • Height: 9-1/2"
    • Depth: 16-1/4"
