Default Infinity Basslink

I recently bought an Infinity Basslink for my WRX sedan. It sounds great in combination with the stock HU and stock speakers, is cheap (about $200 + shipping on Ebay) for an all-in-one combo of enclosure, sub, and amp, and it doesn't take up alot of trunk space.

It provides more than enough bass for me and I like the way it sounds better than Bazooka tubes.

Mine is mounted vertically in the left rear corner of the trunk with the connections facing the cabin and the knobs facing outward. There is enough room behind it to get to the jack, it doesn't interfere with the spare tire well, and the brackets can mount to the metal using self-tapping screws.

While it can be connected several different ways, mine is connected behind the head unit using the included speaker wires, as opposed to getting a line out converter and using RCAs. The speaker wires were run down the passenger side and the power cable down the driver's side.

Hey Guy,

Have you tried opening the rear seat pass-through door to see how the Basslink sounds then? Wonder if the bass is tighter that way.

Thanks

Ginseng,

I hadn't tried it with the passthrough open before, buy I just did.

It doesn't really affect the sound too much, although it does make it a bit louder.

IMO, the Basslink matches well with rock/heavy metal, as it can put out fairly tight bass. It can also provide boomy bass, if that is your preference. It is probably not as tight as a sealed box 8" or as boomy as a ported box 12", but I think it does a great job and I am very pleased with it.

Question

Can you post a pic of the Basslink in your trunk. I am about to order one and I like the description you gave about where you mounted it. I would just like to see how it actually looks. Thanks

02GatorWRX, I don't have a digital camera, but here is a link to a picture that PunksWRX took. His is mounted exactly the same as mine.
