Our take on the Infinity BassLink

Infinity

Who needs a powered subwoofer?

To produce bass, you need a sub, an enclosure, and an amplifier, and it can be little tricky to match them all up. A powered sub eliminates all the hassle, as the manufacturer designs the enclosure to house the sub and amp together. This all-in-one solution is especially useful in smaller vehicles, where there's no room to mount a separate amp, or in any vehicle where you need every bit of cargo space. Powered subs range from small, flat boxes that fit under your seat to larger boxes that go in your trunk.

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.

Features
BassLink LC Remote Level Control
Inputs and Controls

Features

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 hole 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

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.

not extremely loud, small, simple, relatively cheap.

Nice Subwoofer!

Written By JWhit, New Market, VA on Wednesday, March 26, 2014
 
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.

Excellent sound for such a compact unit on a 2014 Mustang base

Written By DanielB, Atlanta, GA on Sunday, March 23, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.

Jeep TJ

Written By Hendo, Vail, CO on Monday, March 17, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.

Infinity BassLink

Written By Anonymous, FL on Tuesday, March 11, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.

Disappointment

Written By Ken K, Granitebay on Wednesday, February 26, 2014
 
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

Phenomenal Sub

Written By Panther78, Philadelphia on Tuesday, February 18, 2014
 
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

Good Bass Unit

Written By MrGNY, Middletown, NY on Monday, January 20, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's 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.

10 years and counting

Written By cj, New Jersey on Sunday, January 12, 2014
 
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.

Great intergrated sub

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 Product - Small footprint

Written By J. O, Huntsville, AL. on Monday, January 06, 2014
 
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.

Written By bplez, Thornton, CO on Saturday, January 04, 2014
 
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!!!!

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.

Gives me the bass I needed

Written By danielg, Newark, CA on Friday, December 20, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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

Excellent!!!!!!!!!! Better than I Expected!

Written By Steve H from LEHT NJ, South Jersey on Tuesday, December 10, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.

Infinity BassLink

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
Cons:
loudness

Small, simple, quality

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 sub

Written By Andrew, Shreveport, LA on Tuesday, November 19, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.

Great product

Written By Steve in VA, Fredericksburg, VA on Tuesday, October 01, 2013
 
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.

Amazing bass

Written By HappyPeopleArePrettyNeat, Charlotte, NC on Saturday, September 21, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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.

Superb sound in a small space!

Written By Jason, Va on Friday, September 13, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
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...
