  1. So I just got a 2016 Silverado (specs in sig.) and wanted to upgrade the audio and not bust the bank. So here is my list of parts prices links where I got it, and some pictures of the install. Sundown Audio SA-2.75FR 2.75" speakers for the front dash. $69.99 2 Pair Kicker 40CS674 6.75" 2 way coaxial speakers for front and rear doors. $99.99 Metra 82-3005 Speaker adapter for front doors. $12.00 Scosche SAGMHR634B Spekaer adapter for rear door $10.99 Noico 50 mil Sound deadening material $36.90 uxcell Car Sound Deadener Application Rolling Wheel $6.25 So far I have $236.12 in the upgrade and I am very happy so far. My future upgrade will be a sub. Here are the components I planned to use. Kicker 40CWRT101 CompRT 10" Sub $104.99 Kicker 43CXA3001 600 Watt amp $119.99 Kicker 43CXARC Bass Remote Control $20.98 Soudoffaudio Single Deep Sub Box Passenger Side in Cocoa Color $140 Which brings the Sub install to : $385.96 and a grand total of $622.08 That is a little more than the factor Bose upgrade but it is going to sound way better. IMHO Here is pictures of the factory dash speakers. Here is an up close picture of the back of the factory dash speaker. Here is a side-by-side of the factory and the Sundown replacement speakers Here is pictures of the Sundown speakers installed. Here is a picture of the front door completely stripped. Side-by-side of the factor front door speakers and the Kicker replacements. Picture of the sound deadening material installed and then one of the speaker installed. Here is a picture of the factory Rear door speaker installed. Here is picture of the rear door stripped with some of the sound deadening installed. Side-by-side of the factory rear door speaker and the kicker replacement. Here is a picture of the rear speakers installed.
  2. Replacing Bose factory 6.5" subwoofer in the center consol with a JL audio 6w3v3. I have seen many people talk about doing this but have never actually seen anyone follow through. I also replaced my rear door speakers. Factory size is 4x6 and I put in 6x8. Made tempelate of speaker size and traced onto the truck door with sharpie. Then used tin snips to cut out the hole. It was super easy and there is nothing back there to get in the way. Then made a mounting ring out of MDF and a jig saw. Painted it black and put a foam sealer on it which pulled tight when I mounted the speaker. I did notice a better sound quality when I added the 6x8 over the 4x6. I swapped because I lost sound out of my back right speaker and thought why not throw a bigger speaker in there. I will be installing the JL 6w3v3 with the JL jx250 amp this week and I will post pictures and let anyone know how it turned out. Obviously it's not a 10 or 12 under the rear seat but I think it will add a much better sound overall. Not looking to wake the neighborhood. I have read many places it's is "sooo complicated" to get to the Bose sub in the center consol why bother with it. Not true at all. It took 25-30 min to get the entire console out and pull the sub.

  4. Before investing tons of $$ would love to hear what the kicker system, or any other, sounds like...Wondering if anyone in the Bay Area, CA happens to have a setup and would let me hear it? Thanks!

  6. So I've already installed the Kicker Powerstage in my 2015 non-Bose crew cab. It's sounds lot better than the stock system. Alpine recently announced the SPT-21GM drop-in replacements for the rear, front and dash speakers: http://alpine-usa.com/product/view/chevrolet-silverado-tahoe-gmc-sierra-yukon-restyle-sound-system-spt-21gm/ I was thinking of eventually upgrading to the stock speakers as I would like a little more mid bass and better clarity in the highs. How do you think this combo would work using the kicker dsp/amp?

  9. I currently have a single 12" Kicker Comp R I'd like to us in my 2015 Silverado double cab. I'm having a hard time finding a box that can fit that sub. Seems most of the boxes I find are either only for 10" subs or don't have enough depth. I realize I'll likely be short on the optimal internal volume for this sub, but it's what I've got and I have no interest in using anything else. I've used Kicker Comp R's before in small boxes and I think they sound good. I could build the box, but I'd really rather find something already ready to go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  10. Original Post from earlier in the week: I just ordered mine for my 2014 Sierra CC (Non-Bose) and I can't WAIT for the UPS man to get here today!!! People can talk all they want about the price vs. aftermarket and bla bla bla. I ended up getting mine at Shopgmcparts.com for $847 on sale. Will try to post pics this weekend as well as give an updated eval for the new body style system. For anyone with a 2014 and up truck, you know that you basically run your entire vehicle from the steering wheel. I wasn't interested in messing with that and the head unit to get a little better audio sound. I'm sure I will swap out the speakers for something a little more crisp further down the road but for now, I'm stoked about having a little more boom in my Hip Hop and Rock!! So to update, I just had my system installed yesterday. Yes...I paid someone because I can't manage to pull apart interior panels without breaking all of the clips in the process so the $100 was worth the frustration to me (we can't all be master DIY mechanics!!) I have nothing but love for this system so far! It is so well balanced that it is ridiculous! I'm in my mid 30's and am not looking to turn my truck into a pressurized chamber any more so if that is what you are looking, look elsewhere. What it DID do is make it louder, more crisp, and enough bass to enjoy some electronic music, hip hop, rap, and rock the way the Sweet Baby Jesus intended! I listen to a very wide variety of music (really...not the typical "I listen to everything" knee-jerk answer that most people say) and I put the system to the test with quite a few different genres of music in the next two hours of cruising after picking my truck up from the shop. Not one time did it splat, bottom out, crack...NOTHING! I think that is one of the upsides to buying an all-inclusive package that is designed to go together. It knows its own limits and, within reason, won't let you push past them. I have no regrets on spending the money on it. And when it comes to space and appearance, the pictures they show online for the product is exactly what you get. You can see the sub box under the back seat on the passenger side but the front of the truck looks exactly the same as it did prior to installation. That was one of the huge upsides for me was that I wanted to keep it looking as factory as possible. I know it was a bit wordy but I hope this helps anyone who is sitting on the fence about whether or not to pull the trigger like I was. And come on critics, bring all your worst about how much it costs and how you can get a custom system for the same price and...whatever. I bought it on Tuesday night for $850 brand new from ShopGMCparts.com, had it on Thursday, and had it in the truck for another $100 before lunch on Saturday. Take it from a true music lover (NOT a car stereo critic,) this thing was worth every cent and I believe will not let you down! Cheers
  11. Soundgate Powerstage by Kicker

    So I installed the Kicker Soundgate Powerstage about a month ago for my 2011 Silverado crew cab(non-Bose). System sounds great, was a breeze to install, high quality components. Anyone who knows about these systems knows how expensive they are, and well, some things happened, long story short, I'm in a serious bind for cash, so I'm offering the system up for sale. I won't give you a long review on what it is or what it does, if you're looking at this you probably know exactly what it is and have done some research(it's a 10 inch sub and amp in a box custom to fit under the back seat, and a separate 4 channel amp for all other speakers while keeping the factory stereo.) I will say that it is awesome as it should be for how outrageously expensive it is. It's 1,249.99 on Crutchfield, and I was not able to find it any cheaper anywhere else. http://www.crutchfield.com/p_206PSICRE7/Soundgate-Powerstage-System-by-Kicker.html Like I said, it is virtually brand new, perfect condition, only been installed for maybe a month. I hate I have to do this but I just do. So, anyone who has been considering this system and has been hesitant about the price, here's your chance to get it MUCH cheaper. First person to offer up $950 gets it. I live in the Triangle area of North Carolina, Willing to drive half way if reasonable distance, or we can discuss shipping. Quickest way to contact me is by email, ntsolomon5 @ gmail. com
