Upgrade your stereo and keep your factory controls

Most of the people appearing in our videos are employees at Crutchfield. We pull in folks from around the company to share their expertise.

The VSS Powerstage system upgrade by Kicker will transform your vehicle'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 interior or dash. The heart of the system is the Powerstage processor/amplifier module that plugs in between your car's stock receiver and speakers, with a custom-fit, powered subwoofer completing the upgrade.

The Kicker VSS Powerstage lets you enjoy Kicker quality sound without replacing your factory stereo or speakers. The Powerstage starts with an amp and digital signal processor that acts as the new brains of your system. The processor is tuned to your specific vehicle's interior, and the speaker configuration is designed to get the most sound and clarity out of your speakers.

The supplied plug-and-play connectors work with the factory wiring harness in compatible vehicles to make installations go smoother. And putting the system over the top is a custom fit 10" subwoofer. In this example the sub fits neatly under a back seat in a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado Crew Cab.

Be sure to check if your vehicle is compatible with the Kicker VSS Powerstage and if you have any questions, just give us a call.
