Item #: 108BASSLIN
This item is no longer available.
Original Price: $199.99
You crave high-performance bass, but you don't want to use all of your available cargo space to get it. The master designers at Infinity put the same state-of-the-art technology that distinguishes Infinity speakers into the BassLink amplified subwoofer, so although it takes up just one cubic foot of trunk space, it'll produce resounding bass in any vehicle.
The BassLink brings together a 10" subwoofer, 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.
An array of controls will enable you to tweak your bass until it has just the thump you want. For optimum system blending, the low-pass filter is variable between 50-120 Hz (12 dB per octave), and a phase switch (0- or 180-degrees) is included. Adjust low bass impact with the bass EQ feature (-6 dB to +3 dB at 40 Hz). And you'll be able to put BassLink in a variety of in-vehicle locations, thanks to brackets that enable the rigid polymer box to be mounted vertically or horizontally. A wired remote with 16-foot cable allows you to adjust your BassLink's volume from your dash.

Good bass was easy to install

Good bass was easy to install
To put it simply, over the course of 15 months or so, I had three of these and they all died and had to be replaced. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, and well, I won't be buying any Infinity products again. My advice is to keep shopping.
Pros: Inexpensive with lots of output
Cons: Guaranteed to fail
Worked for about six months. After that, it would only play intermittently even though the power LED was always lit. Also would "pop" from time to time, even when the power was off. Googled and discovered that this was a common problem with this item. Called Harman for a warranty exchange and was informed that it is being discontinued and was given a credit, which we put toward a sub to build our own system. Buy at your own risk
Pros: Sounds great when working
Cons: Will stop working at some point....hopefully while the warranty is still valid.
Worked great. Fast delivery.
This sub sounded great for awhile but after about a year it started popping and cutting out. Did some research and found out that this is highly common with this unit.
Pros: Compact and good punch for the price.
Cons: Doesn't last long.
This system has plenty of punch for the cost. If you're looking for quality bass without losing all your trunk storage this is your answer!!
Pros: Compact Inexpensive Easily moved to other vehicles Aestheticially pleasing
Easy install, fits in small space, like a garbage can when it fails 3 months later. Save your reviews until the shiny wears off, a 5 star review the day you install it isn't a review at all. Mine sounded great until it died too. I also have used many Infinity speakers with stellar long term results. This product should not have an Infinity label on it. Unfortunately I bought mine through a different online retailer, so returns aren't as simple as it would have been had I purchased from Crutchfield. And Infinity support is Very disappointing. Mine is going straight to the dumpster.
Pros: Easy Install, fits in a small space, remote level control
Cons: Only lasted 90 days.
This is a great product if you are looking for more bass but don't want to lose a lot of trunk space. I wanted more bass out of my Chrysler 300, but didn't want lose the spacious trunk space by installing a big box and amplifier system. The BassLink powered subwoofer installed easily in about an hour (my battery is in the trunk, so running the power cable to almost no time) and only takes up the space behind the wheel well. I now have amazing bass and can still use my trunk. The bass is not what you would get if you did a true system with subs in boxes and separate amplifiers, but it is a huge improvement over stock and exactly what I wanted.
Pros: Great Bass, small package, easy installation
Cons: Cant think of any at this time
I added this to my Infinity factory stereo. It seems to be the perfect amount of bass so that the rest of the speakers aren't drowned out by too much bass.
Pros: Plenty of power and bass for an addition to a factory stereo. Absolutely perfect for a hatchback install.
Cons: The bass doesn't come through too great when it's installed in a trunk of a mid-to-large size sedan. I'm not sure it would fill up a full-size SUV either.
I Installed the Sub in my 2000 540i, L-O-V-E it ... makes my car seem to ride better !!!! It now sounds better than my AUDI, M Benz and leuxus !!! Wow i'm impressed .
Pros: pretty easy to install, once i figured how to connect to my factory amp.
Cons: none for me
I have purchased Infinity speakers for several cars I have owned over the past decade and have always been pleased with the brand but this subwoofer has been a great disappointment. It stopped working after a little over 3 months for no reason at all. I am not one to crank the bass. I just wanted some presence at the bottom end. About 2 weeks ago it started buzzing and popping in a very annoying and startling fashion. Today it gave up the ghost. Because I don't plan on replacing it or filing a warranty claim I opened it up and found several resistors and at least one capacitor had failed - burn marks and smell on the circuit board. In my book it's inexcusable. I will still consider Infinty speakers in the future but not this product. I should have known better than to get an all in one package. A separate amp and enclosure can actually be had for about the same amount of money.
Pros: Sounded good while it worked
Cons: Shoddy construction makes it unreliable
Pros: Small with a lot of bass and quality sounds
Excelent over my expectatives
I wanted a simple compact powered sub for low end fill in my wife's mustang. From the get-go this sub had muddy, cheap sounding lows. We can't turn it up without it sounding like a blown factory door speaker(even adjusting filters and running the signal through a equalizer). Now at 14 months old the unit no longer works.... right out of warranty. Shame on you Infinity. I was a loyal customer but I will try another brand next time for my speaker/audio needs. Do not buy it.
Cons: It's a cheaply built, crummy sounding piece of junk.
Died within 3 months. all it does now is pop. I tried to sell it to Kellogg for its snap crackle pop commercials, but the said it wouldn't pop on Que.
Pros: Sounds great
Cons: Stopped sounding great after a couple of months.
Installed in 2009 Lincoln MKX Fits perfectly and sounds great!!
Pros: Good range and has a clean sound.
Cons: Not very loud.
The basslink WAS a great powered sub. It sounded tight and clean at all volumes in my e30 bmw. However, after about a year it started making piping sounds and working intermittently. I swapped it out with my friends working mono amp and sub and that confirmed it was the unit and not the wiring. I heard other similar reviews about the product and I guess this happens to some of the units after about a year of use. Prior to it malfunctioning, this was a great sub. Hopefully I can get it fixed and use it again.
Pros: Great sound, size, ease of installation.
Love Infinity's Basslink! This is my second one. First one i had was used in a Celica for about a year, then transferred to an RSX for 10 years. I then sold the car with the basslink. Since then, i have picked up a new weekend car, and commuter car (Corolla) and currently running my second Basslink. This little powered sub provides nice clean Bass, and takes no room at all! Been very happy with this
Pros: Great price, Great Sound, Compact, Design and build Quality!!
Cons: May not satisfy heavy Bass listeners
I needed a unit that would fit in a small location and was an integrated unit, this seem to fit the bill. It sounded fine in a small pick up truck. Almost a year later it started making popping noises, a month late thats all it did make popping noises, Now I feel i'm Mary Poppins as I drive around. A spoon full of sugar isn't helping this medicine go down.
Pros: When it works it was fine
Cons: When it didn't last it wasn't fine
Great sound and easy to install in my Jeep Wrangler
Outstanding performance, I own 2.
Pros: Sounds great, easy installation.
Sounded amazing for its size. But just after a year it started to turn on and off when it felt like it. After reading up Lots of people have issues with fuses and capacitors with this powered subwoofer. A little aggravated because I liked it now I need to spend more money and get something else.
Pros: Compact, great bass, cool design
Cons: Electronic issues
this is my second basslink. my first one lasted 13 years of hard hitting bass. only for me to damage it with a electrical short. i would recommend this monster to everyone!!
Pros: bang for the buck. powerful bass.! perfect size to go in the trunk. no cons!!
Great value worked great in jeep jk mounted on rear tailgate door
Just like the title says too good to be true is the basslink. I installed myself is a more than capable of reading instructions. Pretty easy wiring to say the least except for head and units that have for outputs for the line and the speakers. I had in Pioneer head unit. The basic sounded great for the first few months then everything went downhill. Now the thing doesn't work it has been a year., I had it in the back extended cab of my Toyota Tacoma upright. So I guess just do your research first maybe I'm just unlucky. Sounds great when it works. I kept being told to make sure it was grounded correctly., and I made sure more than once. I know how to ground I'm an electrician. So I just went the other way and got enclosed subwoofer and amplifier and couldn't be happier I guess it just gets too confusing when you get a powered sub too much with all the gadgets and what not to get in the way. Anyways good luck
Pros: Not too bad of sound, and small and compact
Cons: Didn't last long
I have had 3 of these subs.
Pros: I have had (3) of these subs (2 replaced under warranty). All three quit working! The first lasted just over a year, the second about 6 months, the last one about 4 months. Please research online problems with this product. When you do the research, you will not buy this sub. I'm very dissappointed in Infinity for building poor quality and in Crutchfield for continuing to offer a product known to have terrible reliability. You have been warned!
Cons: Terrible quality. Accessive adhesive causing electrical failures, MOSFETS burn out, among other issues.
Versatile and easy to install to factory systems.
As other reviewers have said, this is a great little sub - as long as it works. I installed it with no difficulty in my Prius, and the sound was terrific for about 6 months. After that, it seemed to be dead as a doornail. The power light was still on, but I could not get any output at all. Crutchfield, however, was awesome and quickly shipped me a replacement. Popped in the new sub, and now I am back in business. At least temporarily.
Pros: Easy to install, good output, fused on the sub, autoturn on, and bass link control (although in reality I don't use this much).
Cons: Only lasted 6 months.
The sound is pretty good,but like other reviews on here,i had the same problem,the it dies at an early age.Mine lasted less than 2 years.Dont waste your money
Pros: good sound,easy installation
I was looking for a way to add more sound and bass to my factory stereo without cutting up the wire harness. A Crutchfield member recommended the Infinity BassLink. It was simple to install, and sound great. It adds just enough bass.
Pros: Sounds Great and easy to install.
Cons: I haven't found any cons.
I bought one of these MANY years ago. As in when the first model came out. I didn't feel like building a car sub after I've built quite a few home subs (and other speakers too). I didn't expect much oomph out of it or accuracy of signal due to its design (its physics mimic how a marching band member's bass drum works, ya know? Servo controlled active cone with a drone cone on the opposite side. So I was thinking it could be a "one note wonder" and not musical at all to complement my Polk SR6500's, JL Audio amp for those, and a nice Pioneer deck. Again, I bought most of these items YEARS ago. BUT, everything still sounds awesome. There is one kickdrum note in particular song that often makes me look in the rearview mirror to see if what I felt on my back while in the driver's seat was from someone slightly rear ending me! This model won't break any records and a homebrew one by myself could likely do even better but the price is right, the sound quality is really great (you need to find the best location and orientation for it, BTW), and you can wreck your hearing in 30 minutes with it according to my SPL meter and OSHA. I have it inside my 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee, trunk area (of course), with it standing "upright" on the passenger side, its drone cone right up against the slightly sloping rear seat's back (so that is pretty much muffled) and the active cone firing directly towards the rear hatch. The rear trunk space, which has no "top" acts like a large enclosure for it!
Pros: The Matrix sndtrack has a ton of drums & bass drums. You WILL be impressed. I have freq gen tracks & it won't get down to 20Hz but 30 with no problem. The Jeep is very airtight even after all these years so just cracking open the rear passenger window say 1-2" further enhances how low this smaller sub can go. And it really isn't audible to those outside...just mammoth sound inside (great Jeep insulation). Remember, if you are going to use-up your hearing, do it with quality equipment & music!!
Cons: After years of super hot summers and super cold winters, a crack in its thick plastic enclosure/case has appeared but structurally and sonically, the crack is irrelevant. The "total system" with the Polks and one Basslink can demand 500 watts total RMS (150x150 for the Polks and 200 for the Infinity sub) so geting a cap would be nice to your generator. From years of not using a cap (headlights didn't dim to the beat at all), my alt died so I upgraded to a 135Watter & cap.
Very good powered sub amplifier
Pros: Good product from Infinity.
Cons: Little bulky for tight trunk space
I have gone though two of these each lasting well under a year. For the amount of money that I put in to this product I am very unhappy with the lifetime although quality was good.
I cant believe Crutchfield is still endorsing this product. I went through 3 of these units, Stupidly in less than one year. They don't last and there is no support from the king of speakers Infinity. Don't waste your money, they don't last more than 6 months.
Pros: Good sound for a short time.
Cons: Delicate and no Infinity service support.......
It's perfect for adding that right amount of bass, takes up little space & was an easy install.
I absolutely loved this sub when I first bought it. The bass was strong enough to shake my rear view mirror but not so much as to cause rattling in my Civic Coupe. I had no complaints until it suddenly stopped working about a week ago.
Pros: Great bass for size
Cons: Lasted only 5 Months!
This bass link is clean. Construction Is sturdy. The connections are easy to get to. The sound quality is very nice. I hooked this sub up in the trunk of my mustang convertible. I was just looking to add a little bump to the stock system but I got way more than I expected. This 10 inch sub won't rattle your neighbors windows but it will rattle yours. I like that it is very adjustable to The sound you want.
Pros: Easy hook up clean look Quality sound nice deep and punchy bass
Cons: A little bulky, but what sub isnt.
I probably have one of the oldest models of this sub and it's still working. Bought my Basslink towards the end of 05, yes that's right the year 2005. Since then this sub has been installed into three different vehicles that I've owned. A 00 Toyota Celica, 04 Toyota Tacoma and my current 2009 Toyota Tacoma. This isn't your breaking windows sub but it does well in adding some much needed bass and works great when paired with a decent head unit. It's easy to set up and tune with the knobs located on the sub. I've only recently replaced it due to the fact that I've had to sacrifice a seat in my truck for its placement. Had that not been an issue it would still be there booming along.
Pros: Easy setup and great for anyone not trying to figure out sub/amp combinations. Has enough bass to fill out your gaps in the low end.
Cons: honeslty can't think of any cons. I've have zero issues with this sub in the 10 years I've owned it.
Great product so far sounds good on the inside and no banging on the out side. Clear and clean fits well behined the back seat in my jk
Pros: Easy instal,
Cons: Does not come with power wire, ground, or remote wire
wanted something to boost my stereo without taking up space in my van and this was perfect
Pros: compact, durable
Read the reviews and some people have problems... This was what I wanted for my system.. Just hope I got a good one. Mounted this under the back seat of my van.. And with the 4 kicker speakers this thing rocks.. Sounds way better than I thought it. Would.. Just hope it lasts.
Pros: Easy to mount.. Sounds grear
Cons: Some people have bad ones
Bought this for my truck hoping to keep things simple. When it was working it was awesome. The unit wasn't firing off earth shattering bass but perfect inside the vehicle cab. After about 6 months it developed a loud pop/thump which sounds a lot like the vehicle hitting something. Very shocking the first time it happens! The popping and cut outs continued until it stopped working altogether. All connections are good but the unit failed to function even though it had power. Impossible to get repaired anywhere. The only real option in terms of revival is you go it alone and hope you can fix what the factory messed up. The odds are against you since obviously it wasn't designed to last for very long. Avoid this and get something else.
Pros: Very compact for a full 10" sub/amp combo. Excellent bass when centralized in the vehicle.
Cons: Laughably unreliable.
It work well no challenges very forward and simple.
Pros: Hits well it fits in my jeep perfect between rear seat and tailgate. Would definitely recommend product.
Didn't want to rattle the windows and back out sheet metal screws, just wanted to augment the low end. Worked like a champ.
Pros: Size, brand, I've always liked Infinity speakers. Ease of hook up.
Cons: Adjusting knobs for gain, boost and cross over are a little small and you can't easily see where it is set.
Gives out a great sound and the right amout of power for any size car. With the remote control feature you can easily adjust the volume of the bass for each song for during the song to make it easier to here people talk.
Pros: Get sound, easy install, good price when on sale
Awesome sound, easy install.
Pros: This device has excellent sound quality and is highly customizable and tunable. Installation is relatively easy because of the built-in amp. Relatively small size for a sub, so it was easy to tuck into a recess in my trunk.
Cons: If you tuck it too deep into the space, the two mounting screws on the far side of the unit are impossible to get to. I suggest marking the holes on a template, drilling all 4 holes and then installing one pair of brackets first, then clipping the unit with the second set of brackets attached into the first set and screwing down the second set of mounting screws. Now I play my stereo much louder than I used to. I can't help myself. My wife knows how long I sit in the driveway listening to tunes.
Finished off my sound system in my Wagon with this. I think give you the right amount of bass without it over doing it and making you car rattle
Pros: Easy all in one small trunk friendly decent bass
Cons: Not a good deal if you get it at full price. Wait for discount price.
I would recommend it,installing it was simple ,it takes up very little room and sounds great...
Pros: It sounds great, so far no problem.
i have had it installed for 9 months now. its ok. not real booming or anything. when the polk audio 6 1/2's in the doors put out more bass you know its just ok. i have the sound ordinance under seat 8'' powered sub in my other 2 work trucks and am much happier with them for $80 less.
Pros: ummmmmm, its a powered sub? it looks nice.
Cons: nothing special here.
To start, I want to clarify that I'm giving this product 1 star since it started malfunctioning after 5 months and completely quit after 8 months. Running it at half power on most days, I don't feel I overloaded it's capabilities. I'm currently waiting on Infinity to honor their Warranty policy, so hopefully I got a lemon. But based on a general online search of this product, it seems common. I can't give it a better rating, but do have some quality details to include in case you find a Basslink that lasts. I drive a '01 Honda Civic LX and replaced all factory items with upgrades thanks to Crutchfield (who's customer service has never let me down, nor is poorly reflected due to Infinity's product). The Basslink when added to a Kenwood Excelon KDC X395 head unit and Kicker speakers (Kicker 40CS54 5 1/4" and Kicker 40CS654 6 1/2") sounded AWESOME in my car. I typically listen to rock, hip hop, alternative, club or dubstep on any given day. The sub added the much needed low tones and thump I was looking for to complement the Kicker's clarity on high tones. I rarely increased the attenuator past half way since I got sufficient boom in my small space. The unit fits great in the Civc's trunk while leaving plenty of space for luggage and golf clubs. Unfortunately the unit started randomly popping and shutting off at 5 months even though all connections and adjustments were solid. It recently just stopped producing even though power is still good and connections secure.
Pros: Easy to install Small footprint for space saving in a limited sized trunk Adjustable attenuator for easy control of bass Big boom and deep tones for a small unit.
Cons: My unit died after 8 months with reasonable usage (not overloading the unit's capabilities)
Added a new radio and speakers to Chevy Equinox. Needed something easy to install to add more bass. This was the perfect addition. The Infinity BassLink provides the perfect amount of bass needed to feel the music.
Pros: Easy to install. Sounds great. Can feel the bass!
The Infinity BassLink combo is where it's at no doubt. It's not to loud and it's not to quiet. Plus it's small enough where u still get to keep your trunk especially with the built in amp. Perfect for a hatchback or sedan. Definitely worth your Benjamin's!
Pros: Built in crossover that has a 50 to 120Hz sweep Freq response 20 to 120Hz Easy to install and easy to tune Great for a first system
Cons: Haven't had any problems yet..
Great product and easy install with 2 different mount options. Sounds great even with little tuning on my end...
Bought this sub for a Tacoma extended cab and it was easy to install, good fit for the space behind the seats and good tight bass with excellent controls to fine tune. Problem is that after 18 months it shorted out. Almost every review site has a few people mentioning that these units don't last but I figured they may not have installed it correctly or had some other problem in their system, and the odds were low that I would have that problem...well, should've taken heed. But if that's not bad enough trying to get help from Infinity's outsourced customer service, well, exactly what you'd expect from outsourced customer service. Absolutely no help. And no one services these because replacement parts are not available but they will charge you a diagnostic fee to tell you what you already know. So the point is, don't buy this unit.
Pros: Ease of installation Tight bass notes Plenty of power for a small space Excellent controls
Cons: Lasts just long enough for the warranty to expire Terrible customer service from Infinity
Going on three years of service for my Basslink and I have to say that it is magnificent! I was scared to death by all of the bad reviews, but one of my students told me that he had installed his third unit in his newest car. He had let two other units go when he sold the other cars. I was impressed with the sound and workmanship and ordered a Basslink for myself. I have to believe that many of the failed units in the bad reviews may have been overdriven. Placement of this unit is critical. I'm planning on using the horizontal mounts and seeing if that makes a difference and if it will avoid the standing waves I sometimes get at higher volume levels trying to cover road noise. Warm, rich and powerful sound inside your vehicle...what more can you ask?
Pros: Blends beautifully with my HD head unit. Using 4-way Pioneer speakers in the tailgate, factory speakers in the dash. Made the original flat sound come completely alive. Prefer driving this car because of the rich sound the Basslink provides.
Cons: Not for annoying other drivers or homeowners with pounding, throbbing sound while on the road.
I installed some new door speakers that were underpowered due to keeping the factory head unit. This caused an extreme lack of bass in the car. I called Crutchfield and asked how could get the bass back in my sonata and they recommended the Infinity Basslink sub. I was skeptical at first because the reviews said that it died a few months in. I took the plunge anyway and I'm glad I did! This thing hits really hard and really gave my car the bass it needs. I performed the install my self. I bought an amp install kit and that gave me the power, remote and gound wires needed to go with the basslink. I mounted the basslink in the trunk and ran the power wire down the driver side of the car. The remotes and speaker level inputs ran down the passenger side of the car to avoid noise issues. Since I was using the speaker level inputs on the factory radio I had to use a bunch of scotch locks to secure the wires to the back of the head unit. I also installed the gain controller hidden in the dash storage area, which came out fantastic for tuning on the fly. All in all the look is completely factory looking and took about six hours to complete. I followed the setup instructions to set all the levels. Once the basslink had a few hours on it it really came alive. I highly recommend this for anyone looking for outstanding lows from any system. Thanks Crutchfield you guys rock!!
Pros: Easy to install. Compact to fit anywhere. Incredible bass for such a small system.
Cons: Should come with an install kit.
Very powerfull sub in small package . Was easy to install and sounds great.
Pros: Ease of installation and size
Cons: Wish it came with r.c.a. cables
Really great sounding sub with enough power for my saab 9-3. However, it only lasted 2 months past it's 1 year warranty before it started having problems. Two more months later and it was dead. This is a common problem with these units and I wish I had done more extensive research earlier.
Pros: Clean deep bass
Cons: Have to replace in just over a year
Bought this sub 3 months ago and wanted to really give it a try before i rated it. Even the guys that installed it said this is a waste. After they got it all hooked up they were shocked as to how well the sub preformed. So 3 months later its doing great. the perfect addition to hide under the back seat of my silverado crew cab. You do have to take the back set of legs off to get it to fit under the seat but after that its perfect. Great sub.
Pros: Sounds good, looks good, price is good.
Great bass sound in a small package. I've heard the stories that after warranty period the sub tends to break but only time will tell.
Pros: Awesome bass Takes up small space
This was purchased at the Crutchfield Store in Charlottesville. The bass is good. Not too much, not too little. Perfect for a guy approaching 40 who doesn't want to annoy his neighbors and is interested in parts of the music that are above 125hz. The bass is punchy and accurate, although it struggles a bit to accurately reproduce the super low tones in some rap songs. Installation was a breeze, and the unit left plenty of room in my trunk. I have read the many reviews both here and other places which complain of poor reliability. I chose to purchase a square trade warranty from Crutchfield which extends the warranty out to three years. Seems worth it under the circumstances. I had to ask about extended warranties, as they were not offered without prompting. I wouldn't have purchased it without the extended warranty due to the likelihood of failure.
Pros: Sounds great and wont be heard 50 yards away
Cons: Chance of failure
I was hesitant to purchase this unit, I was between an MTX or the basslink, I have had both brands in the past, however i love infity. Im a bit scared about the lifetime of the unit, after reading the reviews,, i took my chances,,,, im very happy with the unit so far, its perfect for my 300zx, since i dont have much cargo space on the trunk. This was the way to go without sacrificing space. I love it!
Pros: great size, awesome bass, easy hook up and comes with brackets to bolt it down!! very nice sound.
Cons: none so far.
I am an over the road trucker and my wife bought the Bass Link for my Christmas. I spend 10 to 14 days at a time in my truck so good music is important to me. My Freightliner Century is equipped with 4 5 1/4 inch coaxial speakers so bass was lacking to say the least. I installed the Bass Link under my bunk and wired it to my JVC head unit using the subwoofer crossover in the head unit. Result: Solid tight bass! This unit isn't going to rattle the neighbors windows but if your looking for good bass response that isn't muddy or garbled this is the easy answer. The built in amplifier driving a 10 inch driver and 10 inch passive radiator provide all you will need. The wired remote level adjustment is mounted right next to the stereo and rarely sees settings above 50%. Great bang for your buck and super easy to install. A great addition to my system.
Pros: Easy to install and setup. Great sound. And it doesn't need a power cable the size of your thumb!
Cons: None that I can find!
All-in-one box of low-toned fun and excitement! The installation was a snap! (Though I recommend good connections all around. The JL audio Master Ground Lug is a great addition to purchasing this sub) I chose this sub for use with speaker level inputs. I expected noises, hums, etc. I don't have a single bit of noise outside of the frequencies this sub reproduces. Its in an extended cab truck and the sound is just right. It has a surprising low frequency response, and doesn't disappoint. The term precision comes to mind now that I am writing this. With that said, if you are looking to round out your stock system or you are limited on funds and space: buy it! Accompany it with new speakers and your factory deck will surprise you! Let me put it to you like this: The first song that came on the radio after the install and during the "tinkering" phase was "Toto - Africa" Needless to say, it made me grin like a little kid. Keep in mind this isn't going to win you an SPL Drag. This sub is built for quality sound on a budget. Quality sound belongs "in" your car not in everyone else's car within a block radius of your vehicle.
Pros: Easy Installation Great sound (Not overbearing) Just the right amount of features for tuning to your taste
Cons: I'm waiting to see if this thing croaks like some people have said theirs did. Until that happens, I see no Cons.
Like others, this unit lasted 9 months before it died on me. I'd like to tell you about all the things it did right and how it sounded, but a product failing so quick is not acceptable. Keeping in mind that I normally kept this unit powered off, this bugs me that it didn't last very long. I wonder if Infinity really makes this product because every other Infinity product I've owned lasted longer than the car I put them in.
Pros: The fact that I purchased from Crutchfield and they have the best policies to cover equipment which fails.
Cons: Lasted 9 months
Pros: Easy to install with any style receiver
Installed in jeep wrangler to help the weak factory subwoofer, it provides great bass and was easy to install with the wiring harness from Crutchfield. It will rattle my shed when the jeep is inside
Pros: Built on amp and easy install
As with most reviews I found this sub to an impressive compact sub-woofer. It's fit and finish is impeccable and it comes with multiple mounts for horizontal or vertical mounting. I especially like the remote bass knob which I custom installed behind one of the blank option panels on my new Toyota. I have heard mixed reviews about this sub-woofer's longevity, so I'll keep my fingers crossed that this baby will last a while.
Pros: Small, convenient, remote bass knob
Cons: Bad reputation for reliability
Fast shipping!! Unit works very nice. Installed on my harley ultra glide in rear bag. Added the needed bass.
Pros: Easy to install.
This sub made a lot more sound than what I was expecting! Very happy with the crisp base and output of this powered subwoofer!
Pros: Great sound out of a 10 inch!
Great powered SUB! Sounds great and you can adjust it really easy. Infinity did it great with this one! Would definetley recommend it to a friend.
Pros: Compact size and output. Relatively easy to instal. and PRICE!!!
Cons: First one i got had a defect but Crutchfield sent me a new one. Hope the one year OEM warranty is enough.
A fine system for the money. I have it wired into a '01 ranger extended cab and it rocks pretty good. Not something that will rattle your brains out, no people wont hear you coming 5 minuets away, but I call it my little thumper, and if it hits a sweet spot everything shakes =)
Pros: Small, simple, relatively cheap.
Cons: not extremely loud, small, simple, relatively cheap.
I like it a lot. Installed it three days ago. I hope it lasts and lasts. The inputs on it are all satisfactory for me.
Pros: Easy to install, good sound, all controls are there and has a remote gain control.
Cons: None so far
I picked this up a few weeks ago to add some sound to my SUV. I wanted some decent bass but didn't want to sacrifice the space in the rear of the vehicle as the third row seating was a priority. I am very happy with the Infinity system. It gives me more than enough thump and takes up minimal space. Clear and crisp sound. Great purchase!
Pros: Plenty of bass, easy to install, remote gain control.
Cons: Have not found any thus far.
I installed this unit on my 2014 Mustang base 4-speaker sound system. The amount of bass that this little unit puts out is amazing! It actually is a little bit more than what I was looking for. I picked it up while marked down and got an additional discount for buying an open-box unit. That extra savings was applied to purchasing the extended warranty (3 years); just a little piece of mind since I read several reviews complaining about service life of the built-in amplifier. It comes with a 1-year Mfg. warranty. My only complaint is the "Infinity" logo on the grill should be removable so that it can be mounted upside down on its side (saves wire length) and this also makes the writing on the controls upside-down; a minor annoyance more than anything. Finding a flat, solid surface to mount it to is also an issue, but that would be the case with any box you add to your trunk. If you're looking to add significant bass to your system without shaking out your fillings, and save your trunk space for more important things, this little box should do nicely. I installed mine standing up(side-down) on the passenger side recess of the trunk. Note: I will edit this review to reflect any warranty related issues if they come up in the future
Pros: Great power Small foot print Easy setup/integration Best bang for the buck
Cons: Mounting it may end up putting the controls upside-down, depending on which direction you want the wires to come from. I was cheap and didn't want to buy extra power cable to mount it with rear facing controls. Only an annoyance when setting it up and if your're OCD, like me.
Great clean sound
Installed in a Jeep TJ. Super simple install, very comprehensive install kit included. This unit produces sound FAR exceeding my expectations. I've owned plenty of subwoofers made by countless brands. For the money, this may just be the best piece of equipment I've purchased. It will not rattle your doors off, but it will let you know that its there. Very enjoyable, from purchase to listening. Strongly recommended, especially for vehicles with smaller volume.
Pros: Affordable, good install kit and instructions, sounds far better than it should.
Cons: The unit gets a little whiny on the mid level bass...especially while listening to reggae, ska, etc... Effective tuning can improve it a bit.
I bought this product because I wanted better low end bass to compliment the sound system in my 2000 ford f150 and wow did I get more than I was expecting. The basslink produces good strong sound without even breaking a sweat. I usually keep the remote level at or below twenty-five percent because any higher and it becomes too much for my vehicle. The price was a major selling point for this product. it in my opinion beats out the kicker powered sub I was contemplating that retails for twice as much. If you want a great amount of bass that doesn't take up your whole cargo area and does not empty your wallet the basslink will do it for you.
Pros: Very good build quality, low price, very strong low end bass, extremely easy to install.
Cons: Sound can be slightly boomy on some recordings.
Crutchfield, you did it AGAIN ,I am VERY pleased with my purchase, it was easy to install,thanks to the wiring kit available with my purchase from you ,and the sound,,,,bass that truly BUMPS,is unbelievable. the system I have put together for my pickup truck (completely from CRUTCHFIELD) turns heads and really makes me happy
Pros: infinity (nuff said)
Cons: (,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,sorry ,I don't know how to write out the sound of CRICKETS
I AM A LONG TIME LOVER OF INFINITY PRODUCTS. OVER THE YEARS THEY HAVE NEVER FAILED TO PLEASE ME.
Pros: IT IS JUST AS DESCRIBED, COMPACT AND POWERFUL. ADDS PUNCH TO MY ALREADY NICE SYSTEM.
Cons: NO CONS YET AND DON'T EXPECT ANY.
When it worked it was fine, but it worked only when it felt like it. Crutchfield's filters recognized I was looking at powered subwoofers again and sent me the top picks and this was one of them. I have to replace it but how do I do that at Crutchfield.
Pros: Looks fine and the sound was ok.
Cons: Did not work all the time. Finally stopped working more than half the time
There is something in this unit that is just not stable for very long; especially when the warranty expires. I liked it so much when it did operate, so I just spent the money to fix it. The technicians stated that it should be more stable now; never told me what they did because the tech wasn't around when I picked up the unit. Since the repair I have had no problems.
Pros: Kicks like nobody's business; if repaired properly Reasonably compact unit Easy to install if you have some "tinkering skills"
Cons: Why didn't Infinity fix the stability problem before units left the factory
Great sounding bass, but dies right after the warranty runs out. Mine lasted a little over a year. I know that I am not the only person who has had this happen. Do not buy this!
I ordered this as part of a gift for my nephew and installed it into his 02 Explorer. It has great bass, clean not overpowering. He listens to mostly rock and country and wanted something that sounded clean so we set him up with a good all around system with the support of Crutchfield. They helped me pick all the parts and we came up with a very good sounding system.
Pros: Easy install, multiple mounting options.
Cons: Holes for the bolts where not aligned so had to fight with putting the bolts in.
This product sounds great out of the box......however it will die within the first year!! I had the first one replaced within a year.....then the replacement dies within the next year.!!! I am severely disappointed in Infinity's quality on this product....I have had other Infinity products that were great...this one is an absolute dud!
Pros: Good Sound
Cons: Terrible quality amplifier life!!!!!
I have had this speaker system for about 3 weeks now and love it! I rarely take it above 3/4 volume. Install took me about 2 hours total. The bass is amazing for such a compact speaker.
Pros: Everything you need in one small package. Great bass for size. Easy install. Great instructions.
Cons: I haven't found any yet.
Added this to my 2000 Jetta Monsoon sound and made a big difference. As there is no power switch in the back and I hate to drain my car battery, I paired it with a MTX re-Q Bass Restoration. The MTX has a 12volt switchable connection when it detects audio coming in. It powers on the Basslink only when there is audio, very convenient. With the Basslink, I can feel the bass in my chest instead of my head. This is a characteristic of low frequency bass and is not tiring. The reason it can reproduce lower-end bass is the size of the woofer. You cannot get that kind of bass from smaller speakers - (Bose is an exception).
Pros: Low frequency bass, shakes the car.
Cons: Should have included an auto-switch on/off.
This is one of the easiest subs to install. Harman did a great design an it's well documented. I bought this same sub last year and returned it be cause the auto turn on did not work. Crutchfield stop selling it. The problem is now fixed. The sound quality is loud and will shake your trunk.
Pros: Easy to install, sounds good.
Cons: Took Harman a few years to get it right.
Great sound from a small package. If you want deep lows that only come from 15s, you will be dissatisfied with a single 10 inch sub. I have had mine BassLink for about 9 years. I've never had a single problem with it.
Pros: Great sound, small package. Adjustable gain with remote.
Cons: Only a 10 inch sub.
Installed in my e46 beemer trunk, plenty of bass even with the stock radio which will be replaced soon with a flip out, it's made by infinity!!!! The best in sound in my opinion, and sounds perfect with my infinity kappa stock replacement speakers! It has allot of features for the price plus great performance. Im a father and husband and have outgrown the days of hearing just booming bass! This give me the sound i want period!!
Pros: Ease of install ,durability, sound flexibility, price and size
Cons: I wish there was a 12 inch version so i can run them both with an 8" focal, and get every low frequency i want.
The sound is awesome!
Pros: Great sound and hit
Cons: Doesn't fit under back seat of pick-up
BOUGHT THIS UNIT ON RECOMMENDATION FROM CRUTCHFIELD. I HAVE A 1995 CELICA WITH A KENWOOD HEAD UNIT AND FOUR KICKER SPEAKERS, NEEDED THAT EXTRA BASS TO COMPLETE MY SYSTEM. THIS WAS THE TICKET FOR THE MONEY, MY CAR SOUNDS AWESOME NOW.
Pros: GREAT PRICE AND MORE POWER THAN I WILL EVER NEED
Cons: NO CONS
This is my first experience w/ a subwoofer in my car. I've had this BassLink in my Honda Accord sedan for over a week now and am happy with it. For about a year prior, I was listening to a JVC deck w/ 2 speakers in the front doors and 2 -6X9s in the rear. Having the tone/bass controls at as flat setting as I could set it gave hardly any bass. The highs and mid-range were fine, but it did not sound full and natural. Something was missing. It was the Inf. BassLInk, the missing link of the system. The Inf. is in the trunk area, and set at about 1/4 of the way up, gives me a nice, tight, natural bass sound. I don't like boomy or loud music, and am glad I chose this product. I had a professional install it since I am not handy w/ car installation.
Pros: nice, tight, natural bass for a full sound
Cons: can't think of any
This product has been around for years & you still can't beat the deal. This is the 2nd one I've installed. It's a perfect addition to any decent stock system that just needs some great bass, especially if you don't want to lose half of your trunk.
Pros: Multiple mounting options, speaker level or preamp inputs, & easy wiring (no remote wire needed if using speaker level inputs)
Cons: Not for serious bass enthusiasts
Have had lots of subs in my 19 years of car ownership. From a pair of 8's to six 12's in a camaro hatchback. Latest car is a family friendly Elantra GT Hatchback. Wanted a small sub that would round out the good factory system. Found this here on sale and free shipping so grabbed it. The features sounded interesting, specs looked good (200W rms, 10" driver and 10" passive) and was nice and small. The servo monitored driver sounded very interesting on paper and the remote level dial is a big plus. Arrived in 2 days. I spent a full day installing it, taking my time and doing a nice clean install. Used the speaker level inputs and the 'auto on' feature, along with a 10ga power feed from battery and a 10ga ground run to the chassis. Mounted in the left rear corner of the hatch, barely takes up any space. Tried multiple locations before deciding on a spot, the position of the sub in the car makes a big difference in the output level, I have it fairly well corner loaded tucked all the way back and about 6" off the side of the cargo area, speaker / radiator facing sideways. Is much louder than I expected from a prefab 10" self powered sub. Super smooth, loud, deep bass. Very very clear, and it is difficult to make it distort, I guess due to the servo monitoring of the voice coil. Super clean super deep bass. Obviously not as loud as a pair of 10's or 12's in a typical box with a bigger amp, but everything I throw at out sounds great. HIGHLY recommend!
Pros: Cost was great for a complete subwoofer and amp setup. Looooooooong speaker level hook up wires included. Remote bass level knob included. Infinity quality and looks. Easy install. Small so even in my small hatchback I still have use of most of my cargo area. Has adjustment for crossover point, bass boost / cut at 40hz, and gain, as well as the additional remote level control knob for the dash.
Cons: Honestly, cant really think of any, this worked out perfectly for me and was more than I expected to get as far as sound level and sound quality.
Little 10" Outputs just enough sound to give my car those real low and sounds. It is not the loudest thing in the world so don't buy if your trying to impress your high school friends. I installed this in my car and have it perfectly equalized. I absolutely love the sounds that it produces and I am very happy with the product.
Pros: Hits the lows
Its sounds great in my 2012 Jeep Compass.
Pros: Awesome sound
This subwoofer is fantastic. It's small, self-contained, and powerful for it's size. If you want to rattle the neighbor's dishes, this isn't your sub. But if you're looking to round out your musica experience, it's perfect. Having the sub & amp in one unit means no muss, no fuss mounting and wiring it. It's a tad bigger than I expected, but provides more than enough bass in my Ford Ranger supercab. It comes with speaker wiring for pretty much any installation, but you'll need to supply your own power wiring.
Pros: All-in-one unit, means you only need to mount one device, not two. It has controls right on the unit to fine tune it to your liking, as well as the wired remote to make it a quick & easy task to raise & lower it's power level. It has multiple input options to fit your configuration, and comes with very easy to understand instructions, so even a novice can hook it up correctly without worry. It has attachable mounting "feet", allowing you to mount it either laying flat or standing up.
Cons: The only thing I don't like about it is actually a trivial thing. I wish it had an on/off button. It would be nice to be able to sit and listen to the radio with the engine off, and not worry about the battery drain. It has a "auto on defeat" switch, but that doesn't keep it from turning on. My stereo even has a setting to disable the auto on, but that also does nothing. I docked a star for this, I wish I could dock only 1/2 star though, and give it a 4.5 rating.
Great sound loud and very clear. My bronco needed 2 because of music I listen Hard rock,Metal &R&b. Have all gains set at 50% and even at full volume doesn't break a sweat
Pros: Price and sound
Cons: after 3 years none
This is a great addition to my system. It fits perfectly in my trunk and it does not take up too much room. It sounds great. It shakes my mirrors on my car.
Pros: Compact, great sound, one unit (Amp/Sub)
I chose the Infinity Basslink subwoofer because it had an auto-turn on feature that would power up when I turned on my radio and did not need an extra switch. It could also be hooked up to my rear speaker leads and I did not have to go the RCA route. The ANC in my 2013 Honda Accord was interfering with the sound on start-up but the Crutchfield team was able to guide me through that problem and now my subwoofer sounds great with my 4 new Sony 3-way speakers. I had never installed a sub before and with the help of the Crutchfield techs I have to say that it was not difficult at all.
Wow this little sub with amp left me speachless exellent sub a must have I put this in my 2008 ford escape takes up almost no room sounds great and a great price too
Pros: Very easy to install
Perfect sub for my truck by far exceeded my expectations the bad reviews had to be bad installation . No way to match this sound dollar for dollar
Pros: Small powerfull rich bass inexpensive
The best ??????????
Pros: Small and powerfull
i have a 93 bmw525i the bass is awesome. the bmw comes with 8 speakers so with the basslink i can adjust these speakers for highs and midrange. the bass link handles all of the lows with ease. i listen to classic rock,jazz,and r&b so i know my bass.basslink complents the music not over power it. if you are a music lover you care how your music sound in the car not out get it!!!!!
Pros: perfect for common sense music lovers
Cons: cant think of any i love it
Awesome product, I bought this unit in the clear shell when it was offered 12 years ago. Sounded great in my 85 Buick, then again in my 01 Taurus and yet again in my 06 WRX Wagon. Hook up was easy and straight forward, mounting was a little troublesome as I didn't want to drill holes through my car to properly mount it. I used super double sided Velcro to keep it in place. It worked great when I first bought it, we moved it sat for 5 years in a shed through Michigan winters, picked it up and plugged it in and it still hits like new. Definatly better in a wagon or open back vehicle but still sounded better than stock in the trunk of cars. As for people having them "blow" out within a week or two, Items need to "break in" for a couple weeks at a minimum. 1/8 power for two weeks, then 1/4, then 1/2. Proper break in will ensure good performance. After 12 years I still haven't needed to go above 3/4 on the settings of the unit. If you need more than that, you may want to look at something different. If you want more then stock has to offer but want to use your rear view still, then this is a great choice.
Pros: Space, sound quality, ease of use and price. CLEAR SHELL!!
Cons: Mounting is a little funny but not too bad.
It works great and in a small package
Pros: Good price. Sounds good
This was very easy to install. It provides all the bass I need in my 2007 Jeep Liberty.
This Infinity BassLink subwoofer sounds tremendous. I hear notes that I never heard before, or at best, were sort of muddy hints of bass, or made my 6x9s rattle. I spent some time adjusting this subwoofer and found that the bass sounded best with the Bass Boost turned down quite a bit - before that it sounded too "thumpy". Now it is perfect. Find a song with some really low sustained bass notes (like a down tuned bass) to hear what this subwoofer can do. My car came with a connector for an optional amplifier which I did not have, so I wired up an adapter between that connector and this subwoofer. One reason I bought this subwoofer was that it has four line level inputs, front/rear and left/right, and my amplifier connector had all four of those. It also had a connection for remote turn on, so I was able to use that feature of this subwoofer as well.
Pros: Great bass, much better than 6x9s.
Cons: Somewhat large, could be a little difficult to find a place to put it.
This item produces great sound and presence while saving precious space. This is what you're looking for when you need bass without a trunk or large area in which to work. The built in crossover feature, as well as the separate mountable knob allow you to fine tune the sound to your taste. I installed my BassLink in an automatic 1997 Ford F150 Lariat Extended, in the front center floor area (no gear shift to get in the way). I matched it up with two pairs of Infinity Kappa 6x8/5x7's in the front doors and rear sides connected to the factory amp and the sound is absolutely remarkable. I mounted the knob in a small recess under the steering wheel for quick, easy access and a professional look. Note: I elected to install a line out converter so I could use RCA cables to connect the BassLink to the factory system. Also, if you are installing on a factory head unit, you may need to connect the blue remote wire to the vehicle's accessory wire to generate the voltage necessary to send a signal to the sub - at least that was my experience with my particular vehicle. The F150 only generated a little more than 4 volts while the recommended range for the BassLink is between 5-12.
Pros: Quality enclosure produces a great sound, the unit runs very cool, the bass hits hard, installation instructions are very clear, great value
Cons: Time will tell...
Great powered sub in a small footprint. I had this installed in a 2005 Yukon. The install was straight forwarded clean. If you want a sub that will rattle the windows in the next block then this one is not for you.
Cons: None yet.
Didn't expect this type of sound out of this odd shaped sub. Puts enough rumble under your seat and for the type of music I listen to, what a punch. Tight reproduction and handles most lows. For a good all around amplified sub that handles most genres, you can't go wrong here. My setup consists of 4 Polk DB571's in the doors, 2 DB1001 tweeters powered by the Alpine MRP-F300 with the BassLink rounding it out. What a hit. If you're on a moderate budget, it's worth the spend. I am very pleased.
Pros: Nice bass response.
Amazing bass from such a small footprint. As everyone before me has stated, the basslink won't shake the Windows in the neighbor's house, but it will shake the rearview mirror in your car. Best bass bang for the buck. I listen to a lot of underground house music, Latin and bass heavy music, & this does all I could ever ask of it & more. No brained for nice solid bass at a great price without eating up all your trunk space.
Pros: small size & nice bass + remote sub level control.
I had a problem with the first one, replaced it. This one is great just the right amount of bass for a stock radio. You wont wake up the dead, but it will make a big differance.
bought this for my 2010 honda accord, I can't believe what a difference this subwoofer make to my stock radio. The bass is perfect not too much to rattle the car but just enough to feel it inside the car. I am very satisfied with my purchase.
Pros: Inexpensive, clean bass, built quality, looks
Cons: None so far
It has amazing beat and can hit the lows really good. i have a 12" in my truck and the powered sub sounds just as good if not better than the sub and the amp.
Pros: sounds great
Best bang for the buck!!!! No Regrets!!!
Pros: Quick and easy install
I really like this thing! It has a lot of bass if you want it to or it can have the perfect amount of bass. Installation was easy and it came with "universal connect" wires. I didn't use them I used RCA but they aren't included. It doesn't come with a remote wire and You have to separately buy a power wire which is fine. I got an 8 gauge. You don't need a super huge wire cuz it's only 200 watts its not 1000. It also came with the remote gain which is super nice, you can mount it close to your knees on the dash and adjust it whenever. I listen to mostly metal and some rock and electronic and even country but no rap. It sounds great with everything... Some songs require more bass so you just crank up the remote and you're good. It came with "feet" to mount it vertically or horizontal. I chose to lay it flat cuz it made more seance to me. The feet all have screw holes in them to screw it to the trunk floor of my 94 prizm. It has the actual woofer on one side and on the direct other side is the passive radiator I guess. If you lay it down, the feet do keep it up off the ground so air can move around it. It works great and I'm super happy. Got it the day after I ordered it and crutch field customer service is awesome as always. Ask them any question you have on this, they'll know.
Pros: Great bass and sound and easy hook up
All I can say is,,, WOW.
Pros: Excellent sound, can fit in many configurations.
I've been looking to add just a little bass to my 2005 Honda Accord for sometime and have looked at numerous systems. I didn't want a complicated installation or my trunk filled with subs and amps so when I came across this I thought it would be perfect. It's a great little sub. I originally had it installed in my trunk and it sounded good but didn't sound great. Too much metal rattle. Since it's somewhat compact, I moved it to behind the drivers seat and now it sounds amazing. It gives me the bass I've been missing. I've had it almost nine months and it still going strong. I plan on ordering another one to place behind the passenger seat to add just a little more thump.
Pros: No complicated set up. Includes bass control so depending on the song a twist of a know can add or remove bass. Doesn't take up a lot of space.
Cons: There are none if you are looking to add some bass without rattling windows three blocks away. If you want that then stay don't buy this.
I called in and asked for advice for may application and budget. I planned to buy a sub and amp separately. He suggested this and I am very pleased with it.
Pros: Inexpensive. Amp designed for this sub.
I love the infinity basslink. I purchased an out of box one and it had problems. Notified Crutchfield and they immediated ly sent me out a brand new. Once hooked up I get the bass that I have wanted. This is added to a 2011 factory Sonata system and it greatly enhances my listening pleasure with the bass that gives the Sonata system the bottom that it greatly needed. I would by this product again.
Pros: Very deep rich bass without adding an expensive full total system
This is a great all in one system to add substantial bass using minimal equipment. Installation into my Sentra was pretty simple and the sound output was surprising to say the least. As I said, its a great all around system for the money.
Pros: Compact, great sound, good bang for your buck, and comes with great Crutch field 24-7 tech support.
Cons: For the cost and the sound you get, there aren't really any cons.
Best compact subwoofer available. I tried others and this was the best.
Pros: Great sound, easy install
Cons: A little large
The bass coming from this unit is amazing. My daughter absolutely loves it.
Pleasantly surprised with the sound for such a small unit.
sounds great and easy to install
I like it very nice not hard to install took about a hour
Very happy. great sound. great deal. easy installation
Pros: Great sound
Wow!!! This infinity basslink is awesome! I needed something that was going to give me some rich sounding bass that I was missing from my aftermarket hu and speakers...and does this ever deliver!!!! It's exactly what I was looking to complete the sound in my subaru forester! The Crutchfield rep was so knowledgeable and helpful...thanks guys! If you're unsure about purchasing this little unit...don't be!! You won't be disappointed!!!
Pros: Great bass sound !!
I used the RCA inputs in my installation. Make sure your head unit volume can be cranked up enough to drive the BassLink's RCA inputs. For me, this meant trimming down the gain on the outboard amplifier I was using (Alpine Power Pack) with my head unit (Kenwood KDC-X997), which allowed me to crank the head unit sufficiently. I cranked the gain at the sub to three-quarters and started thumping.Before that, I got nothing out of the BassLink because the outboard amp was already giving a screamng volume level with the head unit cranked to one-third max. This unit provides clean, listenable thump you can feel, even with the Bass Boost on the sub set to minimum and the head settings flat.
Pros: Straightforward installation, flexible mounting options, straightforward and easy-to-adjust controls
This is my second Basslink, and I have to say that the technology that goes into this unit is unsurpassed. It (in my opinion) is THE BEST powered sub for your money. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who wants some good lows and wants to save space.
Pros: Remote bass knob, ability to tie into a factory audio system, mounting options, the sound this little 25 pounder produces.
Very crisp, clear bass...Easy to adjust...lots of boom for the buck...rounded out the system very well...filled in the missing bass information to give my Kenwood head unit a full spectrum sound...This unit did not work when first turned on but Guthrie at Crutchfield informed me that the blue lead in my harness was nonfunctional and had me hook up the amp turn on wire to the blue and white lead and instantly my problem was solved...it only took 30 seconds to fix my problem...That's customer service! JMW
Pros: Lots of bang for the buck and a very compact size for the bang! Very easy to tune and dial in the proper bass levels. Always have had great results with Infinity products!
Cons: Can't think of any!
I have a good quality aftermarket stereo in a full size Ford cargo van, and even with four speakers the sound was "tinny". My wife wouldn't even let us play any music when she rode with me (we've made it into a camper van for road trips). the BassLink really fills the van with rich, deep sound. We can enjoy music on road trips again!
Pros: Sounds great, easy install.
It's a lot of BASS for the $$$$$'s I installed it in my jeep wrangler after the Alpine deck and speakers just didn't have enough boom. The Basslink makes my jeep thump.
Pros: Awesome sound and easy install
I Read several of the reviews from my fellow consumers and some of the Crutchfield staff. I have used this sub now for about two weeks. I was that guy who had to have big bass in my trunk no matter what I was driving. I usually always had a dual 10" or 12" sealed box in my trunk with substantial power to push them. The problem with that set up now is that I'm 31, married, and have 2 girls under 3 years of age. So cargo space is now important and having deafening bass is no longer relevant. So I chose this sub for the small footprint in the trunk.It fit perfectly between the wheel well and the trunk opening in my 09' Malibu LT. It was easy to install and has several installation applications for versatility. I was actually surprised with the amount of sound that came from this little package! The auto turn on feature is really nice as well. Now if your one of those bass heads then this sub is not for you but if you want balanced sound while maintaining your trunk space then look no further.
Pros: Easy to install, Small footprint, easy to tune (if you follow the directions given), Auto turn on function, built in amp, several installation applications, great balanced bass response.
Cons: Will not win any bass competitions.
Bought my son a Toyota extended cab pickup. Wanted to put in a stereo for him with a sub that would not take up both "seats" in the rear. The Infinity BassLink sub was the answer. With the built in amp, compact design and killer thump< he is now enjoying some great music. Have yet to turn the gain up all the way as it fills the cab with a good strong bass. Love it and was easy to install. Did it myself, first one!
Pros: Compact, great sound, price and ease of install
Cons: None, as it has a remote gain control so no need to keep adjusting the gain at the amo if you want more/less!
I installed a Basslink in my 2002 Explorer Sport. It provides the perfect amount of bass for my application. I wasn't looking to be the annoying thumping car you hear coming but instead I wanted fuller sound and enough thump if I want it.
Pros: Compact size and remote attenuation.
Pros: Great sound, easy installation....
This is a replacement to an already awesome powered subwoofer. Had one in my 95 vet, installed a new alpine nav/radio from "Crutchfield" and shorted out the amp in the subwoofer. OOPS :( Anyway..... great....Awesome 10" powered sub for the price. Going to fix the other one and put it in my pontoon boat....Rock on!
Pros: Easy Hook up...Great sound. Lots of options for sound preference
Cons: Only for those who don't buy this awesome powered subwoofer
This unit worked fine for a few months and quit outside the warranty period. I had all the setting at mid-level and never pushed it. Very disappointed with this product. Does not belong in Harmon family.
The BassLink is a great product. Easy to install and its pretty much just plug and play, very little adjustment at all. I installed it in my 205 Nissan Xterra and it is exactally what i was looking for!!
Pros: Clear bass thats rounds out a system
Great fit in my FJ. Great improvement over the stock powered sub.
This sub is perfect! I was looking for something to give a little bit more boom to my factory system and I decided on this. It gives a nice clear boom but its not too much or too loud. It's not even up all the way and it makes the car shake! I love it
Pros: Sound Clear base
I purchased this subwoofer when I had my 2000 F250 in 2002. I still have the subwoofer and it has been in a Toyota Tundra and now resides in my '09 Scion XB. I have never had a problem with it and I can still rattle the windows with it. Easy to set up and sounds outstanding. I would definitley recommend this to any one with a fair amount of installation room. It can be installed standing on end or lying flat and works great either way. It has occasionally been utilized as a foot rest and its been droped once or twice when pulling it out of or installing in another vehicle and it keeps on going. The grill on the active woofer side is pressed in but it doesn't affect the sound.
Pros: Easy installation. Great sound. Very durable.
Cons: Can be bulky for those that don't have a lot of room. In my 2000 F250 it was in the rear and was used occasionaly as a foot rest by the kids. In the 2007 Tundra Crewmax, I removed the rear split bench seat to install it. (kids were grown up and married and I didn't need the extra seating.) Wahoo!
Have two of these. One in 95 BMW 325CI, The other in a 96 Chevy Lumina. Bought them for ease and simplicity of installation. Not into Rap, but love the thunder it gives Rock, or Country. If you are looking for same, this is the product to get. I have it set up with Infinity 5 1/4 Reference Speakers, Kenwood head unit, and 750 Watt Kenwood Amp. Works Great!
Pros: Really love the ease of quick install.
Cons: Wish it would fit under the seat of my Chevy Avalanche.
I listen all sorts of music. Its very nice being able to control bass volume from the front with the wired remote.
Good Bang for the Buck. This unit does give you some flexibility in terms of how much bass you can add. Would recommend it.
Pros: You can dial up how much bass you want. Easy to install and the instructions were easy to read.
Cons: None that I can think of. Need a few months before responding to this.
Manual clearly states that sub may be on for few mins after car engine is turned off. During this few minutes the sub makes an annoying humming sound. This is extremely annoying and loud. Bass sounds great for the size but NOT STRONG AT ALL. Only slightly better that most factory premium bass sound system. Not worth the money. Wouldn't recommend it.
Pros: Bass quality is great, space saving,
Cons: Not strong, about same as factory premium bass sound system, not loud,
This unit was recommended by Crutchfield for my application. After studying all the reviews I decided to purchase this item. Boy I'm glad I did this thing sounds amazing. It's so crisp and clean and has plenty of bass. I have this installed in a Jeep Wrangler and it sounds great even with the top down. I don't understand those who don't think it provides enough bass because it will hit and cause my mirrors to jump. Setup was easy its basically plug and play with the RCA plugs just running and attaching wires. Thanks Crutchfield for the recommendation and as always excellent service.
Pros: Size of the unit and the Amazing sound
This thing is awesome for the price. Puts plenty of real bass in a small package. Only issue was putting on the supplied mounts. With screws this long and only 6-8mm diameter they can prove to be a challenge. Would recommend to anyone looking for that extra bass you won't get from your other speakers.
Pros: Pretty much everything.
Need cheap bass, but still want space and access to your spare tire? This is he one!! I was very skeptical at first but got a nice surprise. No,it doesn't compete with the high school kids down the block. What it does do is round out or in some cases drown out the other speakers. Enough bass to feel and rattle a little. Well worth the money.... Anyone giving this under 3-4 stars wants a huge box with 12's but thought this would give the same sound!
i was looking for more bass with my after market speakers but wasnt looking to spend a ton of money. I began looking at this and a couple other units. i decided on this unit because of its size, the positive reviews, the price and because i knew infinity produces high quality products. now i wasnt looking to blow anything or anyone out of the water, it was more for personal enjoyment, but the sound this sub produces is perfect in my coupe and for that little extra punch the control knob is a great feature. for the price of the unit and the sound it produces i couldnt be happier. if youre not looking to disturb the peace, and just want that extra bass for your enjoyment, i highly recommend this unit.
Pros: easy install, basically plug and play after wires are ran (of course if you know what youre doing), fantastic sound (crisp, clear punches), remote knob is awesome when you feel like bumping a little harder
Cons: nothing I can think of
I replaced the front and rear stock speakers in my 2010 Accord with Polk DXI's which sounded great but i did not really have any bass. The stock 8" subwoofer does not do much at all. I wanted some bass to round out my system. I was not looking for mirror shaking or trunk rattling. I wanted some nice bass to compliment my system that I could feel. The basslink was recommended to me. I was hesitant but read several reviews and thought i'd give it a try. The basslink is exactly what i was looking for. It is perfect. It delivers the right amount of bass that I can feel. I highly recommend it.
Pros: Small package, takes up minimal trunk space, easy to install, good sounding bass
Cons: None that i have noticed
I own a 2001 Chevy Prizm. I replaced the stereo with a Pioneer unit that I bought off of Crutchfield. I also replaced the four factory speakers with four 6 1/2 in. Pioneer speakers. Once I installed those speakers I was not satisfied by the bass that they produced. So I started looking for subwoofers. I decided that I wanted a powered sub because it was in my price range and would be easier to install than an amp and a sub. I looked at the Sound Ordnance B-8PT, Infinity BassLink and JBL GT-BassPro12. The more I researched the three of those the more I liked the Basslink. I wanted more bass than what the Sound Ordnance B-8PT offered but smaller than the JBL GT-BassPro12. So I focused on the Basslink. I read that many people said that it hit hard but some said that they did not notice a difference. Last week I decided to purchase the Infinity Basslink. I received it within 2 days which was very nice. I installed the Basslink in 2-3 hours with the help of watching videos prior to the installation. The installation went very smoothly. Now for the bass output. I am very satisfied with the output of the Infinity Basslink. I noticed that it did not hit as hard when I was just listening to the radio. But once I plugged in my iPod the Basslink was bumping. I mostly listen to my iPod so that is not a big problem for me. This is a must buy for those who want to improve the bass in their vehicle. It is reasonably priced and produces great bass for its size.
Pros: Easy to install Small Hits hard when listening to iPod
Cons: Not as much bass when listening to radio
This product is well worth the price. It made huge difference in the system. Highly recommended.
Pros: Sound quality, looks, ease of installation.
Elegant, compact design. Good sound. Quick installation, since I was replacing an identical Infinity Basslink unit that had died. That in itself is not a great recommendation, but the old unit did last about 5 years.
Pros: Compact. Lots of placement options to get it out of the way. Reasonable price.
Cons: The last Basslink I bought lasted only about 5 years.
I have to honestly say this has been a wonderful purchase for me. This is just what my system needed. Thank you Crutchfield for your courteous knowledge in getting my system to wow!
Pros: All good.
I've been reading the reviews of this unit complaining of poor quality and issues with blown speakers after short periods of time. I bought my Basslink in October 2004 and it has been pumping out tight, distortion-free bass ever since. I have to think that people who bought this thinking it was going break their car windows and rattle the fillings out their teeth ended up with the aforementioned problems because they were pushing it too hard. Distortion destroys speakers. If you want bass that's in proportion the the rest of the music and you don't push this thing too hard, I doubt if you will have problems like short lifespan. I can't sing the praises of my Basslink loudly enough. This unit has been a real trouper for me for more than 8 years and still sounds like new. It was a fairly easy install in my '98 Subaru Forester. Maybe Infinity changed something since I bought mine (it was $70 more in 2004).
Pros: Clean, tight bass Easy of installation Longevity (for me anyway)
Cons: None (based on my personal experience)
