Question about Infinity BASSLINK Car Subwoofer

1 Answer

2nd Basslink, still no power-on. Please help

My first basslink worked fine until i had it stored in the garage for a while and then tried to install it and the red light would come on and then slowly fade away and cut out. Soon, it didn't turn on at all. So i figured it was the amp that went out so i went out and bought another basslink, which had blown speakers but a "working amp." Still, i cannot get the thing to turn on. I made sure power, ground, and remote as well as rca's were all plugged in but it just isn't working. Does anybody know what it might be? Checked both the fuse on the sub and the fuse on the power cable and both are fine.

    Same as that. Had mine in storage (was working when I removed it from my old car) and decided to plonk into my Freelander. Spent ages getting the power lead through engine compartment but did it in the end.


    All other speakers work in my car but nothing from the basslink. I've put a multimeter across the terminals (live and ground) and I'm reading twelve volts so power is there - just no red light........so its not a fuse issue (inline or on the amp).


    any help appreciated.

    Just order a basslink from amazon online, once it's connected the power light fades out after a minute,,no servo light at all. I'm sure I'll have to send it back for another, this is the issue when ordering online,,although it may cost less, if you have a problem it takes longer to get resolved. At this time I am not impressed at all with the infinity basslink

I got a used basslink about a month ago and had the exact same prob kept blowing fuses...found out that the voice coil had blown on the infinity...so I had a brand new dvc polk 10 sittin in the closet, I swapped them out, put the polk in the place of the infinity sub, however, the magnet is much larger, hence, dual voice coil, it would rattle sooo much from the passive radiator against the magnet, also could not turn the gain up at all due to the rattle. I got the bright idea to build a "custom fiberglas enclosure for the polk and incorporate the infinity's parts(amp/control) I finished the box finally last night and hooked it up this morning, no power, no lights, no nothing! s@#%, F&@%! ANyone had a prob w/the amp not having the lights turn on, no power??? Hope that helps about your fuse blowing issue.

Power light


Hi Bill, I believe the power problem is related to the Remote wire which should be blue or yellow. The remote wire is suppose the turn the Basslink on and off when the radio is turned on and off. The yellow wire is normally used for power antenna. Traditionally the remote wire is blue. You can use a Speaker level adapter and splice in with the L/R rear speaker wires, and the adapter will convert the speaker level to line level. The output of the adapter will go to the Rear speaker input on the basslink., Write back if you need more detail on the adapter.

Infinity Basslink killing battery


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.

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.

Amp keeps blowing fuse


I have this same problem. You have blown the internal amp. I have had 2 of these do the same thing. There is nothing you can do but report it to infinity and try to get the unit replaced.
