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.

Q
why this say dosen't fit for my 2014 ram 1500 quadcab (not megacab) i have the base speakers 8.4" display?

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!
