Question about Infinity BASSLINK Car Subwoofer

1 Answer

Humming noise when amp is powered on.

My infinity basslink simply hums when plugged in. Occasionally it will pick up a signal from the head unit and play very distorted low tones. I have checked the connections and even hooked it up through line out connections rather than the speaker wire connections that it was originally hooked up with. Still, the humming continued. Could this be a blown coil or a blown amp? all fuses are good. What should I do?

Check the heatsink, touch it with your finger feel it ,if you can hold it with in 15 sec, then your power amp. component might be working if not then probably you Power Amplifier IC or transistor is shorted.

My cars battery died, and when i turned the car on finally the head unit and my infinity bass link didnt turn on


Check the fuse in your car's fuse panel. If it is burnt then change. If it is still good, check the fuse on the head unit and amp.

My first suggestion is to check the gain setting of the unit. If it's above the 50% point, drop it down.

Second, verify your ground connection is good, short, and solid.

No power


Hi,

Other than the +12V, the ground (-) and the 2 RCA inputs, normally external amps have also a remote trigger which switches it to active on. The remote trigger is activated by a wire from the head unit. Colors would either be yellow or blue but depends on manufacturer of head unit. Alternately, you can connect a simple toggle on/off switch to activate the external amp.

Additionally, pls verify that the 2 RCAs from your head unit are audio out and not audio in for aux source.

Good luck and kind regards.

Basslink drops out.


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.

Humming from speakers when CD player running


Yes, The humming is always there you just can hear it better when the cd is playing. The humming is caused by the electrical system in your car. There is an inline filter you can buy and insert it between the car's power source and the head unit. I had a head unit I bought that was absolutly terrible until I installed that filter. Also if you did a do it yourself job on your amp wiring it is usually best practice to run your RCA cables on the opposite side of the car as your power cable. You can also purchase shielded spark plug wires which is a source of noise usually of a different kind tho. First make sure you have a good ground. This means that you have grounded your amp to bare metal not painted metal. If that didn't work put in the inline filter on the head deck as they are only $20 available at radioshack. If that doesn't work, go back an wire your car right this time and put the power and RCA on opposite sides of the car. If you still have that hum it may be the spark plug wires but that sounds more like static than hum. You have a text book case of alternator hum... Hack

Loud humming noise from subwoofer


if it is a powered sub you should lift the ground. you can do this by adding a three prong to two prong adapter. you know, like when you go to plug something in and the cord your plugging in has three prongs and the outlet your plugging in to only has two. it doesn't have the hole for the ground so you go get a little grey adapter that has three holes on one side and two prongs or tabs on the other.if that doesn't take the hum out (actually, is keeping the hum from getting in) you have a problem with the amplifier.
