Question about Infinity BassLink II Car Subwoofer

TURN OFF NOISE

It works for few month with no problem. Now each time I turn off the radio or the car a big boom noise comes out the subwoofer. The subwoofer sound is OK.

    I double check the positive cable that runs from the battery to the subwoofer and the ground cable. Install a new battery and teminals too, just in case.

Hi,

This sounds like a small line capacitor discharging and amplified by the power amp. Unfortunately, this small capacitor can be anywhere from the head unit, equalizer or electronic crossovers (if any), regular amp (if separate from the subamp) and where the RCA terminated cables from the HU initially goes to and finally the sub amp itself. These could be a 1~2.2uF (or thereabouts) line/series capacitor. Its purpose is to provide a pathway for the audio but block an DC signals. What you are hearing (I suspect) as boom are these capacitors discharging along the audio line.

Corrective measure would be open the units up, performing diagnostic and capacitor test (specifically those that are used as inputs). The best would be with the use of a capacitance meter but an ordinary analog VOM/Continuity tester would also do the job. These capacitors are normally located pretty near the RCA input or output jacks. It is not uncommon also for capacitors in the amplifier to cause similar concerns.

Alternately, a quick and dirty trick to reduce if not eliminate the sound is to install another set of capacitors along the audio line. This could be done at the HU's RCA output or the amp's RCA input. Of course this did not correct the defective capacitors (if any) but merely a workaround.

Another possibility that can not be discounted is that the internal DC to DC power supply of the sub amp is acting. Again main possible culprit could be the big capacitors. Additionally, it could be simply the speaker relays (if present) failing to switch off during power down.

All of the above of course would require that you be familiar with electronic circuitry and components, the use of a DVM and possibly a soldering iron. Should you be uncomfortable with a DIY, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified audio professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

KAC-7202 Major feedback after a few minutes of running.


you might try unplugging the wires from the sub, turn it back on with the wires disconnected- if the noise comes back the amp is probably bad - if the noise doesn'tcome back -turn your head unit off and reconnect the sub- if the noise comes then your sub's voice coil could be shorted- if the noise comes back you should try a different speaker to compare- if the noise still there with the test speaker your problem is definately the amp.

Your radio maybe bad.
Use a boom box radio and connects wires to car speakers and turn on the boom box radio. If you have good sound to the car speaker, than car radio has gone to heaven.

My car radios, M7 and 930 Ruf Slant Nose, have the same problem.
German cars & radios are not built as good as the Japanese cars.
