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...
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.

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.
check that fusse under the hood if its blown pull it out and replace it wont hurt anything if u pull it out an put it back in if the cars off.but if ur getting power lights on the amps then more then likely ur fuse isnt blown.id start by checking the audio cables are produceing sound.if u need more help let me know firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
yes the problem is in the installation.the power supply usually has 2 to 3 positives one positive which is usually red go directly to battery.
the other,either yellow,orange,or blue go to car stereo(not to battery or ignition) this supply,turn off the amp when u turn of the stereo.
hope this help u....
