Question about Car Amplifiers

1 Answer

Enclosed subwoofer I had an Infinity Basslink in my 350Z for a year and it suddently died. I replaced it with a Boss BASS800 and after two days, it went into protection mode and wouldn't play either. The only change in my vehicle from a year ago is that I noticed my rear 8's have died. Could that be my problem? If not, I have so many frequencies on my head unit and I have no idea what they mean, could I have something set up wrong?

Its possible you may have blown or damaged the 8" speakers. Are you powering the system with the stock receiver or separate aftermarket amp? You may look into whether the grounds are wired correctly.

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

Subwoofers Creating Independent Noise


Sounds like your RCA's are near your power & ground wires. I would run your RCA''s on the other side or as far away from the power wire as possibly. Sounds like your getting the infamous alternator whine. If none of the above work you can get a in line noise filter to filter out that noise. RCA's can pick up noise when their around anything that has alot of current running through it....Hope this helps

Whats the best way to hook up a 12 inch dual voice coil insignia subwoofer spkr to a 4 channel 650 rev boss amp


Well without seeing a spec sheet on the amp and not knowing your voice coil impedance I will assume the following. If the speaker is dual 4 ohm voice coil the in parallel it would present a 2 ohm impedance to the amp. If this amp is stable down to 2 ohms bridged then that would be the hookup of choice. If it is not stable to two ohms with one speaker it will be tough to get full performance out of your amp. You would have to series the voice coils which would then present an 8 ohm impedance to the amp. Just look at your amp's manual before making the decision. My suggestion would be to get another one of those subwoofers parallel the voice coils on each then wire the two subwoofers in series. This would give you a 4 ohm load which your amp is almost certain to be able to drive.

Turn off boss RT-735 CAR AUDIO AMLIFIER??


If you want to turn it off - Simply disconnect the remote wire or pull the fuse.

If it is turning off - there is a problem. Thermal shutdown, Grounded Voicecoil or wire, or load us under rated impedence.

Disconnect the subwoofer and power up the amplifier.

Any repairs will have to be from a service center, as repair parts and diagrams are not available from BOSS. The repar may end up being more than a replacement would cost.

1998 Toyota Camry Le Wiring Diagram. i want to hook a subwoofer with stock stereo. Need to know what to use so it will power off when car is turned off.


Hello motoxbear17,

You do not specify what particular amp or powered subwoofer you intend to install, so I'm assuming that you have an amp that uses a remote 12V+ signal to turn the amp on and off. Some powered subwoofer systems like the Bazookas, Infinity Basslink, and MTX Thunderlink use an "audio sensing" circuit that turns the sub on only when the radio is on. Some amps also have such a "turn-on" circuit that is active when speaker level inputs are used. I'd recommend that you check the documentation that came with your amp and see if it has such a feature.

For a normal subwoofer amp with power, ground, and remote terminals, the remote terminal usually just needs a 12V+ source to turn the amp on.

In your vehicle, the gray wire coming from the receiver harness is a 12V+ switched source.

Here's a link to the '98 Camry wiring color code:

http://www.modifiedlife.com/car-stereo-radio-wiring-diagram-1998-toyota-camry/

With this connection, the amp will power on whenever the vehicle ignition is on or in accessory, regardless of whether the radio is on or off. If this is objectionable, you can simply add a SPST toggle switch inline with the lead and turn it on only when needed.

Hope this helps.

What is the wire diagram for the 3way bx35 boss crossover


Hello rew_smith,

The wiring diagram is silk screened right on the top of the unit. If your diagram is missing or obscured, you can get one directly from www.bossaudio.com.

The first 3 pairs of connections for subwoofer, front, and rear inputs coming from your receiver or head unit. Top is left channel, bottom is right channel. The 2nd set of connections are the outputs and matched in function to the first set. These are connected to your amp(s).

To the right of the input/output connectors are the 12V +, remote and ground screw terminals. The 2 switches and 9 controls allow you to set the high-pass frequency and output levels for the front and rear channels, and the crossover frequency, bass boost, phase, and output level for the subwoofer.

Hope this helps.

Adding subwoofer


Hello dongurian,

You can add the Bass600 even if your Pioneer does not have any premap outputs. The Bass600 has speaker level inputs and you should have gotten a keyed plug with pigtail wires to attach to the speaker output. Or, you can use a line-out converter if desired.

Hope this helps.

Infinity 336rms amp worked for over a year then one day stopped?


check your fuses. Also check the power wire connection to the amp and then the ground source maybe move that if there is paint under it. check fuses on the amp. Check ohm load to the amp from the speakers.
