About the Kicker VSS™ PowerStage System

Transform your Silverado or Sierra's factory sound system

You've got a great set of wheels, but something's missing: the sound of the GM 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 Silverado or Sierra'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.

processor/amp with wiring

The digital processor/amp and the wiring
are custom-fit for your vehicle.

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 right rear seat. A 200-watt amplifier provides the power you need to feel the bass from the 10" sub in the front seat.

Substage for 2007-up Silverado/Sierra

Substage™ for the Silverado/Sierra
mounts 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 2014-16 Chevy Silverado or GMC Sierra Crew Cab with the basic audio system. It will not work in the Classic body style, or a vehicle equipped with adjustable pedals, or in a Silverado/Sierra with the Bose® sound system.

Q
What are the best factory speaker upgrades to go with this kit? Some that would run well on the 50 watts available from the AMP? Also, would 6x9 3-ways or 2-ways be better for front doors? Thank!

Thanks for your question. For information on comparing the different speaker options 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 and help you make the best choice for your system and your budget.

Q
I have a 2016 Silverado Z71. It has the 8" touch screen radio (non-bose). Is this system compatible?

You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you.

Q
I have a 2015 GMC Sierra I don't have a BOSE system but I did notice in the description this wouldn't work if I had "adjustable pedals" my truck does have adjustable pedals. Is this really an issue?

The info we have on file indicates this Kicker PowerStage system will not work in Sierra/Silverado models equipped with adjustable pedals--we don't have any detailed information about *why* the adjustable pedals make it incompatible though. For more information on that you would be better off speaking with Kicker's support at 405-624-8583. I hope that helps. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=159

Q
I have this system and was thinking of upgrading my stock speakers with the kicker KSC6934 in the front doors and the kicker KSC674 in the rear doors. Would these speakers work with the signal processor since it is programmed for the stock speakers? If not could you recommend speakers that would complement this VSS powerstage system? Thank you

They will absolutely work. The KS series speakers are a recommended fit in their respective locations and will certainly handle the full power output of the PowerStage system. You'll get much better performance using these speakers over their original factory counterparts. I hope that helps!

Q
I already have the substage. Is there any way to purchase the additional amp and digital processor on its own?

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: We don't sell those parts individually. Please contact Kicker Tech Support line: 405-624-8583. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
