    More Bass. If the factory sound system in your S197 Mustang Coupe just doesn't have enough bass for your liking, then install a Kicker VSS (Vehicle Specific Solution) Powerstage Amp & Powered Subwoofer for the powerful sound you want.

    Multi-Channel Amplifier with Digital Signal Processor. The brains of the Kicker VSS Powerstage System is the Digital signal processor with a built-in 4-channel amplifier module that plugs in between your Mustang's factory stereo and speakers with the help of a model specific wiring harness. The digital processor has pre-set high-pass filters, EQs, and speaker time alignments to automatically correct for the limitations of your Mustangs factory sound system for the strongest and cleanest audio possible.

    10 inch Subwoofer. Powered by a 200-watt amplifier, this Kicker VSS Mustang SubStage Subwoofer features a powerful single 10 inch square subwoofer encased in a custom enclosure that mounts in the passenger side of the trunk for a clean OEM appearance.

    Complete Kit. This Kicker VSS PowerStage System comes complete and includes a Subwoofer assembly (enclosure, 10 inch square subwoofer, amplifier), an Amplifier assembly (full range amplifier, mounting brackets) 11 foot Subwoofer Wiring harness, 42 inch Amplifier Wiring harness, 4.5 foot Subwoofer Power harness, 4.5 foot Amplifier Power harness, (1) M6 nut, (1) lock Washer, (2) 30 amp ATO blade fuse and (12) Zip ties.

    Simple installation. Kicker's VSS PowerStage system is simple to install with no permanent modifications required. It simply taps into the factory wiring harness without the need for any cutting or splicing.

    Application. This Kicker VSS Powerstage Amp & Powered Subwoofer is specifically designed to fit 2010 to 2014 Mustang Coupes equipped with the Factory Base or Shaker Stereo System.

    Please Note. This Kicker Amp & Subwoofer Kit is not designed to be used in Vehicles that was equipped with a Navigation/GPS System.

    Is it possible to buy just the enclosure, without the sub or amp included? I'd prefer to do the entire speaker set in the car with the same brand of electronics.

    • We do not currently carry this with just the enclosure without the sub or amp included at this point in time.

      Review from Kicker VSS SubStage Powered Subwoofer (05-14 Coupe)

      Vehicle Specific is a Good Thing

      I picked this up for Black Friday, and had it installed. The unit shipped well, and included every part needed for the installation. The instructions were clear and concise (which the installer appreciated), with enough pictures and everything to make installation quite simple. Thankfully it takes up as little space as advertised. The quality of the materials is excellent as well. For the sound quality? It's good, offers a nice Bass hit, without being overpowering. I ended up dialing my bass back a little bit as I settled in, but that can vary on personal preference. I'd recommend this setup to others, but mostly once it's on sale a bit.

      Perfect setup, decent sound

      I got this on Black Friday and for that price it’s perfect. I don’t think it would be worth the retail price because it doesn’t hit as hard as I’d like but install was a breeze and fit is perfect. Look for it on sale!

      Works with the Steeda Rear Chassis Cross Brace!

      First, every thing that you have read so far or will read is probably true. The clarity from the speakers is shocking. The reason why it costs so much is if you seen what came with this kit you would understand. Every thing is plug and play. The only cutting you have to do is cutting the excess part of the zip ties that are included and cutting a small slit through the firewall grommet. You will add about 40 pounds of weight with this kit. To keep the factory look this is the kit to get. I have rear adjustable coil-overs and a Steeda Rear Chassis Cross Brace. There is no interference with this kit. Both can be used at the same time.

      Powered subwoofer sound and installation

      Powered subwoofer was a huge addition to my cars radio. The lack of output was noticeable once I installed the amp. WOW how great does my stock stereo and speakers sound now. The engineering that went into the design was incredible with the fitment of the amp and subwoofer, spot on in fitment. The instructions were excellent and easy to follow. I now cant wait to tackle my other stock speakers in the car!!! Cons - subwoofer seems to be a little under powered vs the rest of the cars speakers. With that said however, its much more than stock so overall it was a win.

      Great upgrade

      The kicker sub is great for basic bass however it doesn't have as deep as a tone as I'd like. But I'm overall satisfied with the weight and ease of use with the subwoofer.

      Review from Kicker VSS SubStage Powered Subwoofer (05-14 Coupe)

      Worth it

      This system runs from the right side engine bay to the trunk. Fuse hooks into battery then you fish it through the firewall. Some plastic pieces have to come off. Have the panel popper, don't screwdriver it. Kick panel. Door floor moulding, pretty straight forward. Then it runs under the backseat, and into the trunk. Easy. Mounts in the trunk easy. Sounds awesome. Hard part. Connecting into right side speaker wires. No easy way to get your head up into bottom of the dashboard to strip back sheath on the wire bundle and find the correct wires. Then to connect the in-line one-time pressure lug while folded up under the dash is a literal pain in the neck. Worth your time to look into removing passenger seat, if you aren't a contortionist or masochist.

      2nd Post

      This is my second post on this item. Initially I only purchased the subwoofer and as I previously posted it allowed me to play tunes louder but didn't give the thumping bass I expected. I reached out to Kicker and they sold me the amplifier individually - same price as if I got the combo. I installed the amp and what a difference! The bass thump is there although not overwhelming it does massage the back. I added speaker upgrades in the doors and reardeck and there clearly is a distinction. If you just want "some" bump in your system this is a winner just make sure not to waste the time and buy the subwoofer alone.

      Review from Kicker VSS SubStage Powered Subwoofer (05-14 Coupe)

      subwoofer for 2012

      The amp does not push the speaker hard enough. I have to lower the back seat behind the driver to hear any difference in sound, otherwise it sounds just as it did before. In addition to lowering the seat, I've had to lower the treble and raise the bass all the way while boosting the volume to hear additional bass. The unit looks fantastic and mounts great ! I just wish you had put at least twice the power in it so it could be heard without all the tricks to the stereo.

      Review from Kicker VSS SubStage Powered Subwoofer (05-14 Coupe)

      Leaves a lot to be desired.

      Had this system professionally installed. Snaking the wire through the engine compartment was a little beyond my forte as the right wheel well has to be pulled apart to get wiring harness into the cab - left it to the pros. The unit sits cleanly into the truck and looks great, not taking up a lot of space. The audio is definitely louder and it appears I don't get much distortion when I play at higher volume but I do not get the deep low bass I was expecting from this system. Has me wondering if I should have gotten the additional powerstage amp. If you want louder stock system this will work but if profound thumping bass is what you want look further.

      It's all about that BASS.

      This kit delivers it in spades. Although the install was a little hairy, took me a couple of hours, disassembling have the car for the wiring, the end result is a factory look with earth shaking results. It also can be removed with no signs of the install. Very well thought out. No regrets.

      Great system

      I installed this before this was added to American Muscles website from another website. I was sceptical at first because I have used bigger systems in the past but I have to say, I was shocked and still am to this day 2 years on how good this system is. Match this with the Kicker speakers and it truly is a huge upgrade to the stock systems.
