About the Kicker VSS™ Powerstage™ System

Transform your Ram's factory sound system

You've got a great set of wheels, but something's missing: the sound of the Ram 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 Ram'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 Ram's interior or dash.

Transform your Ram's factory sound system

You've got a great set of wheels, but something's missing: the sound of the Ram 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 Ram'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 Ram'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 Ram-specific wiring harness. Kicker's technicians measured the acoustics of the Ram'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.

Important Note: This upgrade package will only work with a Ram Crew or Quad Cab with the basic audio system. It will not work in in a Ram with the premium (Alpine) sound system.

Product Research

Features

Vehicle Compatibility: The Kicker PRAMCQ13 VSS PowerStage Multi-Channel Amplifier & Powered Subwoofer System has been designed to work in the following vehicles:

  • 2013-2017: RAM Crew Cab and Quad Cab vehicles with base radio.

Note: Not compatible with Alpine premium factory audio systems.

Multi-Channel Amplifier: The Kicker VSS PowerStage System includes a 4 x 50W amplifier designed specifically for powering the existing factory speakers and providing the optimum sound quality. The PowerStage amplifier features built-in, computer-optimized, 32-bit digital sound processing (DSP) that's tuned specifically for the vehicle and factory speakers. Mounting the amp is made easy with pre-attached brackets that allow it to be bolted underneath the driver's side dash, with no cutting or modifications. This also provides a more discreet look, with the amplifier tucked out of sight.

Subwoofer: The Kicker VSS PowerStage System includes a 10" square subwoofer pre-mounted in a sealed enclosure that's molded to fit behind the rear seats. The subwoofer also features pre-attached brackets, allowing it to be mounted with no drilling or vehicle modifications. The subwoofer gets powered by the included 200W RMS subwoofer amplifier that gets mounted underneath the driver's side front seat.

Wiring: The PowerStage System includes pre-cut and terminated wire harnesses designed specifically to plug into the vehicle's factory wiring, making installation much faster and easier. Both amplifiers include power/ground harnesses, that get run to the battery and vehicle chassis, along with speaker-wire harnesses designed to be routed through a specific path in the vehicle.

Q
why this say dosen't fit for my 2014 ram 1500 quadcab (not megacab) i have the base speakers 8.4" display?
[ Steven  Sep 03, 2016 ]

A
The research we have on file for your '14 Ram 1500 Quadcab (w/8" screen, non-Alpine) shows that the Kicker Powerstage System is not compatible. However, the Kicker VSS SubStage would work in your truck if you wanted to add the subwoofer portion of the Powerstage to your truck--here's a link to the SugStage system on our website: http://www.crutchfield.com/p_206SRAMQ09/Kicker-VSS-SubStage-SRAMCQ09.html?tp=113 Feel free to speak with an Advisor if you have more questions-- you can reach them by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat (using the "Contact Us" link at the top of your page). I hope that helps!
