Product Overview: The Infinity
BassLink II is a self-contained powered subwoofer system which includes a 10"
square woofer and a 10" square passive radiator. It is powered by a 250-watt,
Class D amplifier.
Square Drivers: The BassLink II
is equipped with a square subwoofer and a square passive radiator. This design
maximizes cone area for maximum bass output from a modestly sized housing.
Mounting System: The unit can
be mounted vertically or horizontally, thanks to its unique mounting system. The
dimensions are as follows:
- Vertical: Width=15",
- Horizontal: Width=15",
4-Channel Inputs: The BassLink
II is equipped with four line-level RCA inputs and four speaker-level inputs.
Any combination of line-level and speaker-level inputs can be used to provide
non-fading bass when connected to a head unit with four outputs. Note:
For head units with only one pair of RCA outputs, or with a dedicated subwoofer
line output, you should connect the RCA cable to the front inputs.)
Remote Bass Level Control: You
can control the volume of the BassLink II from the driver's seat when you
connect the Remote Bass Level Control module. The module can be mounted under
the dash, or disassembled and mounted in the dash for a factory appearance. The
module comes with a 16-1/4' control cable. Dimensions: Width=1.621" (2.285"
including screw tabs), Height=0.893", Depth=2.623" (including knob).
Panel Controls: The BassLink II features a power LED (glows blue when the
unit is operational) on the front panel, and the following three rotary
- Gain: The gain control
should be used to adjust the volume of the BassLink II, relative to the
other speakers in the vehicle.
- Low Pass Filter: The
BassLink II is equipped with a 12dB per octave, 50-120Hz variable low pass
- Bass Boost: To correct any
perceived peak or dip in the bass response, you can adjust the 40Hz bass
boost between -6dB to +3dB.
Right Side Connections/Controls:
The unit's power and signal connection terminals are located behind a
removable panel on the right side. The connections and controls are as follows:
- Speaker-Level Inputs
(4-channels): Two 4-pin Molex connectors for the supplied speaker-level
input harnesses (Input Sensitivity: 1V to 16V)
- Line Inputs
(4-channels): Two pairs of female RCA jacks for the included patch cables (Input
Sensitivity: 50mV to 4.0V)
- Auto Turn-On Switch:
Activates the automatic turn-on circuit when using speaker-level inputs.
Unit powers on when signal is detected, and turns off a short time after no
longer receiving signal.
- Phase Switch: Reverses the
output of the subwoofer with respect to its input. You should choose the
position which results in the best bass.
- Servo LED: The LED glows
blue when the subwoofer is at maximum excursion and the amplifier is
modifying the output to maintain maximum performance. (If the LED glows
constantly, the gain should be reduced.)
- Remote Bass Level Input:
RJ-11 jack for connecting the remote bass level control
- Power Connections:
Gold-plated screw terminals for +12V, Ground, and Remote turn on leads, 8 gauge
wiring kit recommended (not included)
- Fuse: one 25-amp fuse
BassLink 4sc: The optional
BassLink 4sc is a plug-and-play amplifier designed to allow you to easily
upgrade your system. The BassLink 4sc slides into a slot on the BassLink II
(covered by a 7-1/2" x 2-1/4" removable panel), and plugs into the two provided
harness connectors, sharing the BassLink II's power and audio connection. Once
connected, the BassLink 4sc delivers an additional 4 channels of power to drive
the vehicle's front and rear speakers, plus ample bass from the BassLink II.
