Good thump

Almost 5 stars... read the pros and cons. All in all I think it sounds great.

Pros: sleek fit. integrates right in to the existing Ford harness. Clean set up. clean install. Plug and play. Sounds great

Cons: My only con is that I cant control bass output with a separate knob. Basically you have to turn down the bass on your deck and then you miss out on some mids. Some songs have tons of bass, others dont. I will be looking to see if i can integrate a control knob

F-150 SuperCrew Great sound from factory speakers and deck

Although the installation requires you to take apart quite a bit of the dash, it is worth it. The end result is close to audiophile sound out of the factory deck and speakers. Two gripes though, the subwoofer mounting requires installation of nutserts also called rivnuts and the rivnuts supplied are rather thick so unless you have multiple really long wrenches or have super strength you can't use the diy method of installing with the bolt, nut, washer trick. I had to purchase a rivnut tool. Second gripe is it would be nice if the subwoofer had a volume level for music that plays back overly boomy with bass. Listening to classical or jazz music with the kicker subwoofer thump sound is unnatural.

Pros: Excellent end result with just plug and play components, will not void factory warranty, vehicle appears like it's a stock audio system.

Cons: You will end up buying a nutsert/rivnut tool just to install 3 nuts. Kit comes with foam wire wrap for wiring but there is nothing in the instructions on what harness to install it on.

SoundgateT PowerstageT System by Kicker

DNS from Arlington,TX on 5/19/2013

2011 Ford F-150 Lariat

SoundgateT PowerstageT System by Kicker is exactly as advertised. The included instructions are right on and all the components and wiring fit perfectly. Kicker states the product was designed to fit not only the existing system, but also engineered to complement the massive cabin space of the F150 Lariat Supercrew. It is true. It is a bit on the expensive side but in this example you get what you pay for. I am actually far beyond impressed!.It adds wicked bass and enhances the entire range of sound. Kicker really did their due diligence designing this product.

Pros: Superb sound, detailed instructions, very neat clean installation. Every bit as slick as the factory sub and enhanced system. It isn't without effort to install but the end result is worth it.

Cons: None

I picked this up the other day. It is pricey but I couldn't resist that it was all plug and play as I did not feel like tearing up all of the backseat area to mount an amp on the back wall. Anyway, long story short is that the improvement over the stock system is great! The system has the potential to hit as hard as anyone would want unless you're one of those that needs to vibrate anyone and everyone around you. Apparently Kicker recommends not to use aftermarket speakers. I have Infinity Reference 6832cf's all the way around and they have opened up quite nicely with the provided DSP. Very clear sound and zero distortion. They sounded good without the DSP but now that it's hooked up I can tell they were a bit muddy before. Overall I am very pleased. I can also say that it'll blow the Sony Stereo out in terms of bass and clarity. The only upside to the Sony is the extra speakers in the A-pillars and center channel. This was installed in a 2011 FX2 F-150 and the install was very straight forward as I hoped it would be.

Pros: Hits hard and super clear and one of the easiest installs I've done.

Cons: None that I have come across performance wise. As stated above it's a bit pricey.
