About the Kicker PFSDC12 VSS™ PowerStage™ System

Transform your Super Duty's factory sound system

You've got a great set of wheels, but something's missing: the sound of the Ford 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 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.

Transform your Super Duty's factory sound system

You've got a great set of wheels, but something's missing: the sound of the Ford 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 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.

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 truck's stock receiver and speakers with the help of a Ford-specific wiring harness. Kicker's technicians measured the acoustics of your 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 right rear seat. A 200-watt amplifier provides the power you need to feel the bass from the 10" sub in the front 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.

Perfect system for me

Crutchfield customer from Festus, MO on 2/19/2017

2014 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is an expensive system. I am sure you can get more thump for less buck if a person wants a custom system and doesn't mind loosing under seat storage. However that is not where I was at. Also my F250 had a terrible factory sound. A sub alone would not have been enough so I was looking at 4 speakers, a head unit, and possibly a separate amp to drive those speakers. I happen to like sync and though I know it's possible to maintain all that functionality I had little interest in changing my head unit. I called Crutchfield and they mentioned this Kicker system. It sounded like it was everything "I" was looking for. I started my web research and was excited about the product. I had high expectations and this system did not disappoint. Install was straight forward and directions were adequate. I found some YouTube videos on similar installs that also helped. This is not a "thumper" setup but that is not what I was wanting. I actually have my bass turned down a bit. But the improvement over the factory standard system cannot be overstated enough. In summary, if you are unwilling to give up storage and are looking for that factory look then your shopping ends with this system. Though expensive, I feel this upgrade was a fair value and money well spent. If you understand what the intention is of this setup then you will not be disappointed.

Pros: Factory look No loss of storage Complete plug and play

Cons: Price

Q
With the upgraded system amplifier that comes with this set up. Would the Kicker 44KSC6804 be a good door(s) replacement speaker? Or what would you recommend for around that price range?

Thanks for your question. For information on selecting the best speakers s I would recommend reaching out to an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to help determine the differences between the speaker models and help you make the best choice for your system.

Will this kit work with that basic head unit from ford and be worth it without replacing factory speakers?
