Question about Infinity BASSLINK Car Subwoofer

1 Answer

Bazooka BTA series self-amplified tube subwoofer wont' power on

I had an Infinity Basslink self-amplified subwoofer. It used a wiring kit that consisted of 2 RCA cables, a ground wire, a battery wire, and a random blue wire that connects under the steering wheel, by the looks of it.

The wire connecting to the POSITIVE battery post is the RED wire.

The wire that acts as a grounding wire is a very dark brown / black-ish wire.

The wire that connects under the steering wheel is blue.'

The infinity sub that was using this wiring setup was installed at BestBuy where I got the Alpine deck I have now. The sub pretty much caught fire (cheap piece of ****) and is now garbage. My friend sold me his old Bazooka self-amp tube sub. I figured I could use the existing wiring that was already run throughout the car.

I twisted the REDcables together (the existing red battery cable and the red cable on the bazooka wiring harness).

I twisted the black cables together (I figure that should complete a grounding circuit, right?)

All that's left is the blue cord which connects under the steering wheel. My friend told me that the yellow cable on his wiring harness was connected under the steering wheel in his car so they should be the same. I twisted the blue and the yellow together. Gave it a shot. Nothing. Untwisted them. Nothing. No power. I looked at the bazooka website and according to them the ORANGE cable is supposed to be the remote on/off which connects under the steering wheel (to the ignition, I believe). Should I try and use the orange cable and the blue cable I have now, even though my friend said the yellow one is what he had used?

Why won't this work? So frustrating...

Need schematic diagram infinity basslink subwoofer


Design: The BassLink brings together a 10" subwoofer (treated paper cone, foam surround), a 10" passive radiator (to increase efficiency and limit distortion), and an extremely efficient, specially designed 200-watt Class D amplifier that work as an integrated system. Special circuitry monitors voice coil position to maintain linearity at high power levels, so you hear loud, clear bass.

Enclosure Type and Materials: The enclosure is made of an acoustically inert polymer which is rigid enough to resist flexing and dampens any resonance.

Servo-Control: The servo-control system continually monitors the performance of the speaker and ensures that the amplifier delivers exactly the right amount of power.

Class D Amplifier: This unit has a built-in 200 watt Class D amplifier which is highly efficient and designed specifically for use with the subwoofer and passive radiator combination.

Auto Turn-On Feature: When the speaker level inputs are used, the system will automatically turn on and off with the radio. Note: The auto turn-on feature does not operate when the preamp level inputs are used, unless the remote turn-on lead is connected.

Low-Pass Crossover: The low-pass crossover frequency can be varied from 50Hz to 120Hz for a seamless transition between the output of this unit and that of the other speakers in the vehicle. The crossover has a slope of 12dB per octave.

Bass Boost: The amplifier includes a continuously adjustable bass boost from -6 to +3dB centered at 40Hz.

Phase Switch: Allows you to select normal or reverse for best bass.

Mounting: You will be able to put BassLink in a variety of in-vehicle locations, thanks to its compact size and mounting feet that enable the rigid polymer box to be mounted vertically or horizontally.

Vertical Mounting Dimensions:
Width: 14.625"
Height: 13.375" (including feet)
Depth: 8.675" (10.076" including feet)
Horizontal Mounting Dimensions:
Width: 14.625"
Height: 9.5" (including feet)
Depth: 12.75" (15.1875" including feet)

BassLink LC Remote Level Control

Overview: The BassLink LC allows you to adjust the volume of BassLink powered subwoofer.

Installation: The BassLink LC may be mounted under the dash or may be dismantled and mounted inside the dash for a factory appearance.

Under-dash Mounting: Select a mounting location that allows easy, safe access to the control while driving. The BassLink LC has mounting "ears" to use as a template for drilling pilot holes. Attach screws through the "ears" to secure the BassLink LC to the mounting surface.
In-dash Mounting: Disassemble the BassLink LC by removing the Phillips-head screws on the front, rear, and top panels. Remove the bottom and side panels and disengage the RJ11 connector from the back panel. Choose a mounting location that allows easy, safe access to the control, and provides 1-3/4" clearance behind the mounting surface. Drill a 9/32" hole in the mounting surface. Feed the BassLink LC's potentiometer (with the knob removed) through the hold and use the nut provided to hold the control in place.
Connecting to BassLink: Route the cable behind the dash or other interior panels and under the carpet. Do not route the cable outside the vehicle. Connect the cable on both ends.

Inputs and Controls

Inputs:

Universal Interface: Front and rear, left and right Universal interface speaker-level inputs (for use with the supplied speaker-level input wiring harnesses)
Line Level RCA Inputs: Front and rear, left and right female preamp level inputs
+BATT (+12V): Gold-plated screw terminal, 0.350" wide
REM (remote turn-on): Gold-plated screw terminal, 0.350" wide
GND (ground): Gold-plated screw terminal, 0.350" wide
Fuse: There is an installed 20 Amp fuse
Remote Gain Control: Phone type jack for included remote gain control

Controls:

Gain Control: Rotary control that sets gain (variable from 250mV to 4V)
Crossover Control: Rotary control that sets the low-pass crossover point (variable from 50 to 120Hz)
Bass Boost Control: Rotary control that sets bass boost level (variable from -6 to +3dB, centered at 40Hz)
Phase Switch: Selects normal or reverse phase (0 or 180 degrees)
Power LED: The power LED glows red when the BassLink is on
Servo LED: The Servo LED glows green when the servo circuit has determined that the woofer has reached maximum excursion and power to the woofer has been modified to provide maximum performance. The LED should light momentarily during high-level bass transients. Note: Avoid adjustments that cause the LED to remain lit for an extended period of time


Thanks

Can you use a bazooka ba1150 to power up an infinity 1230w sub? not a techie just happened to have these two items and was wondering if i can use them together. thanks.


This is an 150 RMS amp, but the ratings say it'll push 2 10's.
You probably won't get much out of that amp with a 1230 watt subwoofer.
The subwoofer you are wanting to run is 300 RMS, so you'll get half the power you could be pulling. But it would do okay I guess. Nothing like what you could get with a different amp though. You need like a 1000 watt amp to get the most out of your sub. But "YES" you can use them together.

I need the wires to conect my infinity basslink 10''


Any auto parts store or WalMart will sell adequate speaker wires. For a sub of this power rating, you'll be fine with 14GA speaker wires (pronounced 14 gauge) but if you want to get beefier wires in case you upgrade the sub later, I'd recommend this 10GA hookup kit or something comparable.

I NEED A SUBWOOFER THATWILL FIT INT A 2008 MISUBISHI RAIDER CLUB CAB( SAME AS DAKOTA. ANY SUGGESTIONS


Hello andrewsa104,

If you are looking for something that is made specifically for vehicle, two possibilities are JL Audio Stealthboxes and MTX Thunderforms. These are generally "turn-key" systems with amps included. But check.

Here's a link to a thunderform that fits a 2002 - up Dodge Dakota Quad Cab.

A less expensive approach would be a generic powered subwoofer system that you fit under a seat or behind a seat. Many manufacturers offer such solutions, including Bazooka, MTX (thunderlink), Infinity (basslink), etc.

Hope this helps.

Does it sound hot cool and bad ***


Hello dylanholick,

Visonik is somewhat low-end car audio and band pass enclosures in general usually produce rather muddy and boomy bass. It will probably sound "bad", but not hot, and not cool.

If you aim is a good self-contained system with amp, sub and enclosure all in one, why not consider an Infinity Basslink, MTX Thunderlink, or perhaps a Bazooka. They're all available at www.crutchfield.com for little more than you'll pay for the Visonik and any of them will definitely sound better.

Hope this helps.

Power Never Comes on


that remote wire has to be hooked up to the power or the radio power antenna wire which will switch the remote wire on when the radio is turned on, so that remote wire really should be hooked to the radio wire that gets power when the radio is turned on , thats why the sub is not turning on

Infinity Basslink killing battery


Both issues sound like they are related to a non-connected or loosely connected remote wire on the Basslink.

If you're using RCA preamp wires to connect your stereo to the Basslink, make sure the remote wire input on the Basslink is solidly connected to the stereo's remote output.

If you're using the speaker level inputs on the Basslink and not the RCA preamps, make sure the remote input is not connected, as the Basslink will automatically turn on when it senses the speaker level inputs are active.

No Sound from Basslink


Do you have speaker wiring or RCA's hooked up from AMP to Basslink? Also check the settings, make sure you are have bridged the channels on amp.
