Question about Infinity BASSLINK Car Subwoofer

1 Answer

Basslink drops out.

I have a new Basslink that worked fine for a few days. Now it comes on for about 5 seconds after I turn on the stereo, then just drops out with the power light still on. I have 8 ga. power and ground wires. The power wire goes directly to a power distribution block by the battery. The power light stays on when the unit drops out. I have an auto on and off wire hoked to the white power sensor wire on my amp. The car is a 2000 BMW 528i. I used speaker level wiring and tapped into the 12 pin plug on the amp. Any suggestions? Thanks, Curt

    I have installed an Infinity Basslink in my car with no problems. However after a year the basslink makes what is described on their web site as a thumping then 'motorboating' noise. They say this could be due to the following:-


    1. Are the power and ground leads are the correct gauge.
    2. The speakers or speaker wires are not shorted out.
    3. Determine if the voltage to the amp is to low.
    4. Check to see if any fuses are blown.
    5. The alternator may not be powerful enough.

    The power and ground leads are the correct gauge, the speakers are not shorted out, no fuses are blown and the alternator has been upgraded from 65amp to 90amp recently although it worked fine with the 65amp for over a year. Therefore I think it could be point 3. Has anyone else had/solved a problem such as this before, if so please could you tell me how you did it.

The auto on switch should only be in the on position when the REM wire is NOT connected. Auto on can be flaky. Basslinks respond better to RCA inputs then the high level ones. You might try getting an RCA line converter, they work very well with the Basslink.

Basslink works for a few seconds after i turn on the stereo, then it fades away. The servo light is always on even when i disconnect the input line and turn the knobs to the min level. What could be wrong?


Hello, check the +15v and -15v on the Switching Power Supply Control board. If one or both are missing, it is probably Q117 for +15v and Q118 for -15v. If one is missing the limit comparator will rail to one side and cause the auto variable volume control to trip the servo protection.

Power light


Hi Bill, I believe the power problem is related to the Remote wire which should be blue or yellow. The remote wire is suppose the turn the Basslink on and off when the radio is turned on and off. The yellow wire is normally used for power antenna. Traditionally the remote wire is blue. You can use a Speaker level adapter and splice in with the L/R rear speaker wires, and the adapter will convert the speaker level to line level. The output of the adapter will go to the Rear speaker input on the basslink., Write back if you need more detail on the adapter.

if the protect light comes on then you might not have enough voltage running to the amp so you would need to add a second battery just for that amp.

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.
