Question about Infinity BASSLINK Car Subwoofer

Amp keeps blowing fuse

Had a basslink installed in my car for over a year. Worked great and then all of a sudden it stops working. Checked the fuse and it was blown. Replaced and when started car, fuse blew again. Double checked the wiring and replaced fuse once again. Fuse blew and I have no idea where to start checking. Used a multimeter to check voltage to power and remote turn on and everything is fine, however, the power light on the basslink no longer lights up and fuse blows before I can run back to the trunk to see if the basslink powers up. Please advise.

Re: amp keeps blowing fuse

Unfortunately it sounds like your amp circuitry is shorted out causing too much current to flow through your unit and blowing the fuse constantly. A big problem with installations is power and ground wire gauge not being thick enough or grounded well enough, and over time the amp will heat up too much for too long and eventually short. Also, understand that the installation locations of these units is already asking for trouble due to clearance and cooling issues to start with. Good luck and hope this helps.

Re: amp keeps blowing fuse

I have this same problem. You have blown the internal amp. I have had 2 of these do the same thing. There is nothing you can do but report it to infinity and try to get the unit replaced.

My basslink worked great, son blew fuse, replaced, now sounds lik

If the speaker has been overdriven, it may have damaged the cone surround or damaged the speaker coil, causing it to 'rub' inside the magnet. To check for rubbing, you need to move the speaker cone backwards and forwards by hand and listen where the speaker coil/cone goes into the magnet. It should be silent if ok. If you can heara rubbing or grating noise, then the speaker is damaged. If the output driver on the amp is damaged it can give a distorted sound, which could easily happen if it tries to provide too much current.

What probably happened was both of the final audio output transistors shorted. This caused a higher than normal drain on the switching transistors on the primary side of the torrid power transformer causing one to short and then blowing the fuse. I replaced both switching transistors and ramped up the current to about 5 amps. I could see the power supply was not working but there was still a short. I traced the short to both audio output transistors. Replaced them and unit is like new. After I found a service manual on this item it was a breeze to find the problem.

2nd Basslink, still no power-on. Please help

this is in response to the post below:

I just bot a basslink t and i wired it up and nothing it just keeps blowing the fues in the unit i got mine on ebay2.gif so i dont know if i can use the warranty dose anybody have an ida for me- britter623

I got a used basslink about a month ago and had the exact same prob kept blowing fuses...found out that the voice coil had blown on the I had a brand new dvc polk 10 sittin in the closet, I swapped them out, put the polk in the place of the infinity sub, however, the magnet is much larger, hence, dual voice coil, it would rattle sooo much from the passive radiator against the magnet, also could not turn the gain up at all due to the rattle. I got the bright idea to build a "custom fiberglas enclosure for the polk and incorporate the infinity's parts(amp/control) I finished the box finally last night and hooked it up this morning, no power, no lights, no nothing! s@#%, F&@%! ANyone had a prob w/the amp not having the lights turn on, no power??? Hope that helps about your fuse blowing issue.
