Overview

Our take on the Kicker VSS™ SubStage™ SSON12

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" 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 SSON12 fits the 2012-up Chevrolet Sonic, and the subwoofer installs on the back of the driver's side 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.

Features

Overview: Kicker's SoundGate SubStage factory audio upgrade kits are designed to fit in specific year/make/model vehicles. The SSON12 is compatible with select 2012 and later Chevrolet Sonics (please confirm fit with the Crutchfield vehicle selector, not compatible with the convertible). 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 subwoofer is mounted behind the driver's side rear seat (in the cargo area of the hatchback, or the trunk of the sedan) and the included wiring harness has an adapter plug that connects to the multi-channel amp's harness (for subwoofer signal input). The power cable is connected to the fuse box in the engine compartment and specific wire routing instructions are included.

Electrical System: The amplifier is designed to have minimum impact on the Sonic'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 in the vehicle):

  • Width: 12-3/4"
  • Height: 18-1/4"
  • Depth: 11"
