About the Kicker VSS™ SubStage™ SRAMCQ09

Custom-built bass for your vehicle

Are you disappointed with the level of bass your factory system provides, but don't like the idea of installing a universal subwoofer and wiring kit? The VSS SubStage powered subs by Kicker are made to fit in specific vehicles, so you get harnesses that connect to your factory wiring, and a sub that's made to mount where your particular vehicle has space. Each system comes with vehicle-specific instructions that guide you every step of the way. The package also includes all of the wiring and hardware you need to complete the installation — that means no running to the hardware store to find a part that you didn't know you'd need.

Ready to rumble

The SubStage doesn't skimp on power and performance — it comes equipped with a 10" square sub powered by a perfectly matched 200-watt amp, all housed in a custom enclosure that's optimized for sound quality. You'll look forward to rumbling lows that can play back the biggest digital drum beat yet also deliver the low-frequency subtleties of a standup bass. Kicker's earned their reputation for making subs that crank out bass you can feel and the SubStage is no exception.

The SubStage SRAMCQ09 fits the 2009-up Dodge Ram Crew and Quad Cab, and the subwoofer installs under the driver's side of the rear seat. It connects to the factory stereo via two wire taps for signal, and attaches to the battery for power. Please identify your car before purchasing to make sure it'll work with this package, or you can call one of our Advisors at 1-888-955-6000 to confirm fit.

Product Research

Features

Overview: Kicker's SoundGate SubStage factory audio upgrade kits are designed to fit in specific year/make/model vehicles. The SRAMCQ09 is compatible with select 2009 and later Dodge Ram crew cab and quad cab pickups (please confirm fit with the Crutchfield vehicle selector). Included with the system are a 10" subwoofer in a custom enclosure, subwoofer amp with custom mounting brackets, and all the necessary cables to power the amplifier and connect to the factory radio.

Subwoofer: The custom enclosure is loaded with a single 10" square Kicker subwoofer, powered by the included 200-watt amplifier. The enclosure mounts under the rear seat on the driver's side and specific wire routing instructions are included for the power cable and for tapping into the factory wiring for the subwoofer's signal input.

Note: If present, the storage cover or fold flat floor under the driver's side section of the rear seat must be removed. (If there is a storage cover or fold flat floor under the passenger's side and middle sections of the rear seat, those items can remain in the vehicle, with no modification.)

OEM Sub: If there is a factory subwoofer under the passenger's side rear seat, it must be disconnected for the Kicker Soundgate subwoofer to work correctly. The factory subwoofer enclosure can be completely removed, leaving a storage space underneath the passenger's side rear seat.

Electrical System: The amplifier is designed to have minimum impact on the truck's charging system. The amplifier is mounted under the driver's seat.

Dimensions: The listed dimensions do not include the mounting brackets (regardless of these measurements, the amplifier mounting brackets and subwoofer enclosure are custom built to fit out of sight in the vehicle):

  • Amplifier:
    • Width: 7-1/2"
    • Height: 1-3/8"
    • Depth: 3-5/8"
  • Subwoofer Enclosure:
    • Width: 20-1/4"
    • Height: 9-1/2"
    • Depth: 16-1/4"

Will this work with the factory sub? It is installed under the passenger side rear seat.
[ Michael  Feb 13, 2019 ]

Not sure about the factory sub, but it mounts on the drivers side rear seat.
[ JC  Feb 13, 2019 ]
Q
Is it possible to get a bass knob for this system?
[ Joe Fro  Apr 11, 2017 ]
2 answers
A
You can't get a bass knob for the system
[ Evan  Apr 12, 2017 ]
A
You should spend your money on something better. This was the worst subwoofer distortion I've ever heard. I sent mine back after 2 weeks of wrecking my music. The stock woofer sounds better.
[ Evan  Apr 12, 2017 ]
Q
Can the Kicker VSS be used with the factory deck or does it need to be aftermarket?
[ Michael  Feb 14, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
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.
[ Kenny  Feb 14, 2017 ]  Staff
Q
Can this assembly be purchased using the finance option you advertise?
[ Will  Apr 02, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
Thanks for your question. If you are speaking of the 6 months special financing, then yes. Using either the Sony Financial Services credit card or by purchasing with Paypal credit. On the product page just under the green "add to cart" button you will see "Special Financing Offers", that will give you more details. Hope that helps.
[ Kenny  Apr 02, 2016 ]  Staff
Q
What is the difference between the Kicker VSS sub system and the one that comes in the Ram from the factory ?
[ GREENARD  Oct 21, 2015 ]
1 answer
A
Thanks for your question. For information on comparing two or more models 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.
[ Krissy  Oct 23, 2015 ]  Staff
Q
Is this sub compatible with the lay flat folding flooring or does that need to be removed?
[ Grant  Sep 24, 2015 ]
2 answers
A
It need to be removed
[ WYATT  Oct 01, 2015 ]
A
The folding floor will need to be removed, the sub box is taller than the folding floor.
[ STEPHEN  Sep 24, 2015 ]
Q
Does the amp that comes with this have a built in crossover to block higher frequencies? If so, what is the crossover point?
[ Ramsey  May 01, 2015 ]
3 answers
A
It has no adjustment
[ JC  Feb 13, 2019 ]
A
Sorry. I only had this for a few weeks before it was stolen and that was a couple years ago.
[ CHARLES  May 07, 2015 ]
A
I don't think it does. I've had other custom build systems with crossover settings and to me this one sounds like it does not.
[ MICHAEL  May 03, 2015 ]
Q
Will this fit a 2015 Ram Sport 1500 Crew Cab with the 8.4 inch stock system(none Alpine premium soud)?
[ Javier  Apr 02, 2015 ]
1 answer
A
For details on fit or installation please contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and give you the details on if this will fit and what you will need for an installation in your vehicle.
