Question about Infinity BassLink II Car Subwoofer

Open Question

Infinity Basslink II with LOC produces distorted sound???

Okay, I have an Infinity Basslink II installed in an 04 Acura TSX. I have left the unit hooked up to the battery, ground, and remote for about a week with no problems. It stays powered up, turns on and off with the remote wire as it should. Problems is, when I installed it a week ago and connected the RCA's, it sounds as if it is overpowered and distorted (extremly loud compared to the rest of the system) and if I turn up the headunit slightly, it blows the 20 amp fuse in the amp. You can hear music faintly in the back ground. I wanted to ensue everything else was hooked up correctly, hense why I left it all hooked up for a week without the RCA's. I have used a line output converter that states that it is a high / low impendance adapter level converter, dual channel, full DC isolation,input 10 ohm; output 10k ohms, and adjustable level control. Thr LOC is connected to the rear 6x9's and the polarity is correct. Tried differant RCA's, same response. What is the problem here? I've installed this unit before in a differant vehicle, worked great. Is the LOC the problem? Wrong amount ohms? The TSX has the factory amp, is this messing with the Basslink through the RCA's? The sound is the only issue when you plug in the RCA's. Any Idea's...

SOURCE: LED lights up but! ???

Sounds like there is a problem with the amp. Try switching the inputs around for that output on the amp. If that does not help, Yes I would have to say that there is a problem with the amp output circuit.

Doubtful - the factory head unit isn't meant for 2-ohm operation and will stand a chance of damage.

My basslink worked great, son blew fuse, replaced, now sounds lik

If the speaker has been overdriven, it may have damaged the cone surround or damaged the speaker coil, causing it to 'rub' inside the magnet. To check for rubbing, you need to move the speaker cone backwards and forwards by hand and listen where the speaker coil/cone goes into the magnet. It should be silent if ok. If you can heara rubbing or grating noise, then the speaker is damaged. If the output driver on the amp is damaged it can give a distorted sound, which could easily happen if it tries to provide too much current.
