Overview

Our take on the Kicker VSS™ SubStage™ SSICRE07

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.

Custom-built bass for your vehicle

Ready to rumble

The SubStage doesn't skimp on power and performance — it comes equipped with a 10" 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 SSICRE07 fits the 2007-up Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra Crew Cab, and the subwoofer installs under the passenger's side of the rear seat. This kit will not install in 2007 Classic models. 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.

Bravo to Kicker and there setup for the crew cab Silverado. I've built and customized systems for 20 years. Now I'm old and lazy. I just wanted to add quality to my factory Bose system and I'm impressed beyond words. It's a must buy in my opinion

Sound gate Sounds Great!!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I did quite a bit of research before I settled on the purchase of the Soundgate. I wanted to bring my stock radio to life and the Sound gate does exactly that. It has its own built in Amp and adds enough kick to make my stock system sound better than and factory premium system. I also added a set of Alpine 3-way speakers to replace my factory door speakers. Wow! It could not have turned out any better! The Soundgate mounted convieniently under the back seat of my truck so it's completely out of the way and bolted down so there's no annoying vibration at all. Just full rich bass tone. A great purchase!

Pros: The built in amp and made to fit my truck.

Cons: The price is a little on the high side but Crutchfield as always had the best price I found.

Great Item And Kicker Quality

Written by: Scott G from Emporium Pa on May 5, 2013

I was looking to add some more base to my factory Bose system, after much research both online and on Youtube I gave this a try. It was easy to install and the quality is second to none. I could not believe the amount of base that this unit added. You cant go wrong with this and is wroth the cost.

Pros: Amount of added base and ease of install and quality.

Cons: None

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sub sounds great. Easy to install. Had a few issues with the signal wiring. Customer Tech service was very polite. Very helpful. Easy to control with factory radio controls. Would recommend to anyone looking for a sub that doesnt take up much space and sounds great.

Pros: Easy to install, Customer tech support

Cons: Directions are a bit confusing and are not detailed enough

Features

Overview: Kicker's SoundGate SubStage factory audio upgrade kits are designed to fit in specific year/make/model vehicles. The SSICRE07 is compatible with select 2007 and later GM crew cab pickups (please confirm fit with the Crutchfield vehicle selector). Included with the system are a 10" subwoofer in a custom enclosure, subwoofer amp, 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" Kicker subwoofer, powered by a 200-watt amplifier mounted to the enclosure. The power cable is connected to the accessory lug in the engine compartment. Specific wire routing instructions are included for the power cable and for tapping into the factory wiring for the subwoofer's signal input.

Electrical System: The amplifier is 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 subwoofer enclosure is custom built to fit under the back seat):

  • Width: 19"
  • Height: 8"
  • Depth: 17-1/2"

4 questions already asked

do you have the Bose system? If yes then there is a sub under your center console between the seats. You would never know it. This system is specifically designed or it. If you have the standard stereo system then I believe there is a cheaper model for you not sure [ BYRON  Apr 26, 2016 ]
NO The installation was rather simple. Its Power From Battery through Firewall, and a signal wire that taps into the existing Bose Sub under your center consol. Much easier than Expected and it ROCKS!!!! [ BYRON  Apr 26, 2016 ]
No [ BRADY N  May 23, 2015 ]
I did not know that the '07-'13 Silverado crew cab had an optional storage box under the rear seat. However, if the storage box is only under the driver side (2/3 section) of the rear split bench seat then the SubStage enclosure should still work. It fits directly under the passenger side (1/3 section) of the rear bench seat. You may have to temporarily remove the storage box during install to route the wiring harness that comes with the unit. [ NATHAN A  May 21, 2015 ]
The kicker box takes up most of the area under the rear passenger seat. You could probably customize the storage box to fit next to it. But as it sits, it will not fit with a factory storage box if the box extends across both sides under the rear seats. [ JUSTIN  May 21, 2015 ]
If you plan on upgrading your head unit down the road it shouldn't be a problem unless you change or bypass the factory harness. If you use harness adapters through Crutchfield, you shouldn't have any issues. [ NATHAN A  Apr 22, 2015 ]
I've upgraded my entire system. Head unit, door speakers and installed an 1100 watt amp. You can do whatever you want. [ JEFF  Apr 20, 2015 ]
I'm not completely sure. But I do know this woofer is designed as an add on. If I was planning to upgrade the speakers and head unit, I think I would not purchase this woofer and put the money towards building a system from the ground up. With new stock systems, many functions are integral to others so splitting them up doesn't work well. Not to mention Bose I believe utilizes speakers with an odd resistance which makes piecemeal in a system together hard. I hope that helps. [ JUSTIN  Apr 20, 2015 ]
Nots sure. But I like mine and it sounds good. To be honest with you I think the Bose sub only works while watching a movie. But not sure. [ BRADY N  Mar 03, 2015 ]
I believe it does because the control wire to the original sub is still intact, just spliced into with a splice clip. Power is never cut to the original subwoofer also. Though I can't specifically hear it, in pretty sure it's providing low to mid range bass response. Hope that answers your question. Justin [ JUSTIN  Mar 03, 2015 ]
Yes, this one is without the extra 4 channel amp. I spoke with Kicker tech support (405-624-8583) and verified it would work in conjunction with the Bose system. I hope you enjoy the speaker kit, like I have. Sean [ SEAN  Mar 03, 2015 ]
I believe the factory sub still works since all you are doing is splicing into the signal wires with the provided quick clip splices and spade connectors. Therefore, I believe the signal is just being shared between the two. But it really doesn't matter because you couldn't tell after putting in this sub because it is so much more powerful. If the factory Bose unit is still working it gets masked by the Kicker system. [ NATHAN A  Mar 03, 2015 ]
I didn't have an existing subwoofer when I purchased the Soundgate Sub Stage so I won't be able to answer your question. My truck wasn't outfitted with the Bose system. I replaced the factory speakers with 4 alpine speakers and had an 1100 watt amp installed to push them. The alpine speakers along with kick from the soundgate made for an awesome fit. It sounds amazing. If you lose the Bose sub I don't think you'll ever miss it if you install the soundgate. I hope this helps. [ JEFF  Mar 03, 2015 ]
Yes ... you only tap into the signal [ BYRON  Mar 03, 2015 ]
