Our take on the Kicker VSS PowerStage PCOCRE15 by Crutchfield's Buck Pomerantz
Transform your Colorado or Canyons factory sound system
You've got a great set of wheels, but something's missing: the sound of the factory radio leaves a lot to be desired. Low power, less-then-ideal speaker placement, and dialed-back bass all contribute to the unhappy situation. This VSS Powerstage system upgrade by Kicker will transform your Colorado or Canyon'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 truck's interior or dash.
It plugs into your factory wiring with no cutting
The heart of the system is the Powerstage processor/amp module that plugs in between your car's stock receiver and speakers with the help of a GM-specific wiring harness. Kicker's technicians measured the acoustics of the truck's interior, then developed a program to get the strongest and cleanest audio performance possible from the stock speakers. The Powerstage module breathes new life into your vehicle's factory system, automatically correcting for the limitations of the factory speakers, then adding plenty of power so the speakers can sound their best.
Of course, there's a subwoofer with it
It wouldn't be a sonic upgrade without a subwoofer to bring bass magic to the mix. Kicker includes a custom-fit, powered subwoofer that mounts under the rear seat. A 200-watt amplifier provides the power you need to feel the bass from the 8" sub in the front seat.
The powered sub fits under the rear seat
Do it yourself and save
This VSS upgrade package comes with all the hardware and brackets you'll need, and all the wiring is pre-cut and terminated to help make the installation easier. Step-by-step, illustrated instructions make this sonic upgrade a fun and rewarding project.
Important Note: This upgrade package will only work with a 2015-up Chevy Colorado or GMC Canyon Crew Cab with the basic audio system with a 2-knob radio. It will not work with the Bose® sound system. 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.

Overview: The Kicker PCOCRE15 amplifier and powered subwoofer system is designed specifically to fit 2015 - 2018 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon Crew Cab trucks with factory non-Bose, 2-knob radios. It features an 8" Kicker CVT subwoofer, mounted in a sealed enclosure with a built-in 200 watt amplifier, along with a Powerstage 4-channel amplifier with DSP for the main speakers. The system is designed to integrate directly with the factory radio and vehicle wiring without taking up usable space.
Subwoofer: The PCOCRE15 subwoofer enclosure gets mounted underneath the rear seat in the extended cab with the provided hardware, and includes a 14', 9" pre-loomed wire harness. This harness contains 2 plugs that get attached to matching plugs from the amp/enclosure, a ring terminal for grounding, and a power terminal that gets attached to an additional 54" loomed power cable (with ring terminal and in-line fuse holder) for running to the vehicle battery. The 14', 9" harness also contains a 2-pin Molex plug for attaching the additional 6" 2-wire harness. Both wires on this plug get tapped into the factory wiring for the signal to the subwoofer.
4-Channel Amplifier: The PCOCRE15 includes a Kicker Powerstage 4-channel amplifier, giving 50 watts of power to each of the 4 main speakers, and featuring computer-optimized, 32-bit digital signal processing (DSP) that's been tuned specifically for the vehicle. The included wiring "T" harnesses integrate directly into the factory radio wiring for each signal channel without the need for splicing, and additional power and ground wiring is provided for running to the battery. Mounting hardware is included for installing the amp behind the glove box, keeping the original factory look.
Note: The PCOCRE15 is only compatible with factory non-Bose, 2-knob style radios.
