Video: Kicker Soundgate Powerstage System

Heads up!

Welcome to this article from the Crutchfield archives. Have fun reading it, but be aware that the information may be outdated and links may be broken.

Editor's note: This video was outdated, so we replaced it with a newer, better version: the Kicker PowerStage System.

The Soundgate Powerstage system upgrade by Kicker will transform your compatible vehicle'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 interior or dash.

Zak: Hey, I'm at the Kicker booth at CES 2013 with Aaron, and Aaron why don't you tell us about this Soundgate from Kicker.

Aaron: Soundgate is a phenomenal product for the guy or the girl that just bought a new car or truck and they want that Kicker experience, but they don't have room for four twelves and 10,000 watts of amplifier. So what we've done is given you the ability to have a Kicker quality system that's completely integrated with the stock stuff. Let's have a look.

So here's your stock radio. When you buy the car or truck it comes with this, so we're not gonna swap this out. But what it does not come with is a Kicker amplifier or Kicker subwoofer. So we're gonna move down here and we're gonna add in this multi-channel amplifier with DSP control. Now what the heck is DSP control? It basically means that we can tailor this amplifier for your car perfectly every time. And you don't have to do anything. You just simply plug it in and it works perfectly. So this silver box is pure magic.

Now because you've already got speakers in your car that you already paid for, we're not gonna make you swap those out. This is gonna amplify those speakers and it's specifically equalized and crossed over for those speakers. So it makes them sound a whole lot better. Now of course Kicker is known for bass, so what we've got here is your add on subwoofer, which is also amplified. So we're gonna give you that Kicker thump in your car or truck just like you expect when you're sixteen years old, but now you're a little bit older. We've still got the Kicker for you.

Zak: Great. Thanks, Aaron. That's the Soundgate from Kicker.
