Our take on the Kicker VSS™ Powerstage™ System by Crutchfield's Buck Pomerantz
Transform your Challenger's factory sound system
You've got a great set of wheels, but something's missing: the sound of the Dodge 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 Challenger'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 Challenger'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 Challenger-specific wiring harness. Kicker's technicians measured the acoustics of the Challenger'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 in the trunk, neatly tucked into a recess on the left side. 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 the 2009-up Dodge Challenger with the basic 4-speaker system. It will not work in a Challenger with the premium Boston Acoustics or Kicker sound systems.

The Kicker VSST PowerstageT System adds a digital signal processor with a built-in 4-channel amplifier to the factory system in select '09-newer Dodge Challengers. The signal processing and added amplification will definitely produce improved clarity and accuracy from the factory speakers, while the included sub and sub-amp will give you much better bass quality. This upgrade should give you a noticeable improvement in full-range sound quality at any volume level. I hope that helps.
