Arrow Basslink owners MUST read! ....

If you have a Basslink (or any amplifier for that matter) hooked up to the stock headunit via tapping into the speaker wiring, do yourself a favor and buy a LOC from www.davidnavone.com ... I can't even explain how much of a difference this one little piece makes. Trust me you won't be disappointed ... I got the 4-speaker version so I can add an amp later, but if you dont need that the 2-speaker version should work just fine ... make sure to get the adjustable one, it comes in handy ... almost like a remote gain control for your sub.

Heres a couple threads with pics of the acutal unit, and the rest of my setup as well..

i am actually looking into buying the infinity basslink to put in the rear of my 2003 forester. i bought the OEM sub/amp but it sucks so i wanna upgrade but save space. does the basslink put out pretty well? i was just gonna unplug the sub/amp that i have now underneath the seat and use those wires to run to the basslink. is that an ok setup or do i need this converter thing?

Its not that easy You actually can't use any of the wires from the factory sub at all.

You have to run power wire from the battery thru the firewall and back the driver side .... hook up the LOC into the back of the deck, then run your RCA down the passenger side .... it took me maybe 2-3 hours, but if i had to do it again, maybe 1-1.5 hours ...
Its pretty easy, just takes time to do it right. As for the output, it can pretty much shake the whole car, ... no complaints there.... unless you are a bass fanatic I doubt you will be left unsatisfied.

hth,
Dave

Installing the Basslink is about as involved as installing a separate amp/sub combination, except the placement is more simplified. I spent about 4 hrs with my friends tearing apart my dash, center console to route my power, remote control, RCA line outs, green poweron wire that'll activae the basslink when the car is started.

Even tho i installed the same unit in my older RS, it wasn't any faster of a job because i wanted to change my approach make the installtion more clean without any obvious wires.
