About the Kicker SF150SC15 VSS™ SubStage™

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 big subwoofer in your vehicle?  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. (Note: This system won't work in Ford EcoBoost vehicles with Auto Start-Stop Technology.)

Ready to rumble

The SubStage SF150SC15 doesn't skimp on power and performance — it comes equipped with a 8" 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.

This SubStage fits 2015-up Ford F-150 Super Crew and Super Cab pickups, plus 2017-up F-250, F-350, and F-450 Super Crew and Super Cab trucks, installing under the rear seat on the passenger side. 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.

Crutchfield customer from Chapel Hill, TN on 7/29/2018

2015 Ford F-150 XLT

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I don't have the Sony system, but I do have the 7 stock speakers. This was a nice addition and added the low end I was missing. Easy to install. Was missing some parts from Kicker, but Crutchfield's great customer service took care of that promptly. Finally, I do have the Auto Start/Stop on my truck and I have keeped it turned off. So far this has not been an issue. If does come an issue, this can be remedied with FORScan, by turning the auxiliary sub feature on in the truck programming through the OBII port.

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

So clean, to be able to get some much needed bass with a stock stereo & not take up any cab space is more rewarding than anything else on the market. Install was a breeze.

Pros: Deep bass, & so clean, easy installation

Cons:

Installed Kicker SF150SC15 VSS in my F150. It sounds great. It is a good match for the factory speakers. Good bass but not overpowering. I had it installed by a Kicker dealer. Fits great. Happy with purchase.

Q
I've got a 2018 Lariat with the BO stereo system and factory subwoofer and the 5.0 with auto start stop. Will this work?
[ Jon  Oct 30, 2018 ]
3 answers
A
it does work. Just keep in mind that if you is the auto stop/start is will keep turning on and off. Sound quality I wouldn't recommend. I returned mind.
[ Juan  Oct 30, 2018 ]
A
No
[ Jeremy  Oct 30, 2018 ]
A
No, it is for the non b&o
[ Jeremy  Oct 30, 2018 ]
Q
Does this system plug directly into the factory subwoofer connector under the carpet on the driver's side? Any additional wiring required?
[ Ryan  Aug 04, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
It appears the plugs that this connects to are behind the driver's side kick panel. There is no additional wiring needed to install this powered subwoofer. It comes with everything including the wire taps that are needed for part of its install. My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101
[ Paul  Aug 08, 2018 ]  Staff
Q
By all wiring included, does that mean for aftermarket as well?
[ Lulu  Jul 26, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
Yes it does. It comes with power conductors that connect to the positive post on battery and the negative attaches to the frame. It comes with two signal conductors that splice into existing speaker wiring. It comes with the splice connectors for the signal wires. Nothing more needed.
[ ROBERT  Jul 27, 2018 ]
Q
By all wiring included, does it mean for stock stereo as well?
[ Lulu  Jul 26, 2018 ]

It sure does come with the wiring to get the audio from the stock stereo system as well as the power wiring to run My Bio: http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/Bio.aspx?bio=101
[ Paul  Jul 27, 2018 ]  Staff
Q
Does this also amplify the existing door speakers?
[ larryj2112  Jun 28, 2018 ]

It does not. I am disappointed with this product. I already asked for a return label.
[ Juan  Jun 29, 2018 ]
Q
I have a 2018 f150 5.0 Stx with 8" touch screen 6 speakers, also has auto start/stop tech. Will this work with my truck?
[ Brent  Jun 22, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
Sorry, no. This system won't work in Ford EcoBoost vehicles with Auto Start-Stop Technology.
[ Ryan  Jun 27, 2018 ]  Staff
Q
Why won't this work with Ecobooat models with start/stop tech?
[ RaiderSmiley  May 02, 2018 ]
2 answers
A
It's because of the voltage drop when the auto start/stop engages. Puts the amp in protect mode. There are ways around this. After all Kick made an OEM version that Ford sells. Only different is the ford dealer needs to reprogram the trucks computer. All they are doing is turning the auxiliary sub feature on from all the research I've done. There are solutions so you can do yourself. Getting ready to try out myself.
[ Anthony  Jul 15, 2018 ]
A
They do not provide a specific reason other than it's not recommended. You can contact Kicker directly for more info: 405-624-8583
[ Ryan  May 09, 2018 ]  Staff
Q
Does this work in the 2018 F150 Lariat without an existing subwoofer? There is no sub connection in the door pillar like the XL and XLT.
[ Ralph  Apr 26, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
The Kicker VSS SubStage system would work in your 2018 F-150 Lariat provided it does *not* have Ford "EcoBoost" with Auto Start-Stop Technology. It connects to the factory stereo via two wire taps for signal, and attaches to the battery for power (all wiring included). For more details or to discuss further, please contact an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. Thanks! :)

Q
The Ford version of this subwoofer requires programming by Ford. Does this one need any programming?
[ Ralph  Apr 22, 2018 ]
7 answers
A
If your truck has Auto start ?stop then yes ..........
[ Jeremy  Apr 26, 2018 ]
A
I had to order mine through ford and send the Crutchfirld back as it was supposedly not compatible with eco boost engine.
[ JC  Apr 23, 2018 ]
A
No programming is required. Just plug and play. It is the perfect fit and sound. I couldn't be happier.
[ ADAM  Apr 23, 2018 ]
A
No it does not. Presuming you already have a factory sub in place which you require for this to work, it's not worth the price to upgrade. The sound is not any better than the factory sub.
[ brian  Apr 23, 2018 ]
A
No
[ KEVIN S  Apr 22, 2018 ]
A
No, it's plug & play ready
[ JACOB I  Apr 22, 2018 ]
A
No programming needed. Plug and play. I'm happy with it.
[ CARON  Apr 22, 2018 ]
Q
Will this fit a 2017 F250 XLT? And be compatible with a 8" display with 7 speaker system?
[ L  Mar 03, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
According to the research we have on the '17 F-250 XLT (w/ 8" display & 7-speakers), the Kicker SF150SC15 VSS SubStage system would work just fine! : ) For more details or to discuss further, please contact an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. Thanks!
[ Larry  Mar 13, 2018 ]  Staff
Q
Has anyone heard if this is similar to the SoundStage in that if you have the 2.7 with auto-stop it may not work? I have not contacted Kicker yet but I'm curious. I currently have auto-stop disabled due to having something plugged into the trailer harness but I don't know if that will solve the problem or not. Thanks!!
[ Chad  Nov 11, 2016 ]

If you visit Kicker's website it states that this system can NOT be used in a vehicle with the Ecoboost/Start Stop. To be precise, "NOTE: This system is not compatible with Ford EcoBoost® vehicles with Auto Start-Stop Technology." If you'd like to verify, go to Kicker's website and enter your model and year truck under "Vehicle Specific Solutions." The Ecoboost exclusion will come up in bright red. I'd link it for you but Crutchfield prohibits external links in their Q&A area.
[ Rodney  Dec 26, 2016 ]
Q
Is it possible to connect a remote gain control to this system?
[ John  May 26, 2016 ]
1 answer
A
This model did not come with that option but I do believe that they do offer one for a few more dollars.
[ Michael  May 27, 2016 ]
Q
I have enetered my vehicle info on your website (2015 F150 xlt super crew, factory radio, 7 speakers w/o 8'' display, w/o sony sound system) and your website says this doesnt fit? Also, it says it has a 10 inch woofer, but other websites say 8 inch, is this information incorrect?
