Default BassLink Installed

Ok my Basslink is in the car and working great. We used RCAs via a line output converter. Sounds good. Now all that is left is to mount the Basslink.


Anybody have any suggestions on where I should mount my basslink? On its side or vertical? Do you just drill holes through the bottom of the trunk to do the mount?

a decent way to do it is to use a really big washer with a machine screw from below the fiber-board spare tire cover. Then use some fat nutz to secure it down. The screws will hold through the spare tire cover very securely.

Yes but I do not want to mount the sub in the middle of the trunk. That will take up too much space.

I want to mount it off to the side. I don't know if horizontal or vertical is best and how to mount throug the steal bottom of the tronk.

Default What did you use for .....

Hey Jasno,

What did you end up using for the swithed power supply?
Did you tap into the switched power for the HU?
Just got my Basslink last night and will be fitting it this weekend. I'll be using RCA's through a line level converter (basically just so i've got some RCA and power/switch leads for future use) and was wondering what to use for switched power.

Cheers

Mark

P.S. I've just noticed that you live in King of Prussia. Where abouts in Kof P? I live there myself and haven't seen you/your car around. I drive a WR Blue Rex with 18" Speedlines, Brullen Turbo Back and a PA lic plate 'WRX'. Give me a wave if you see me!

I actually did the install for him mark. All I did for the switched power was tap into the head unit wiring. Someone on this board gave me a wiring diagram. RCA's are the way to go speaker level inputs suck, plus like you said if you upgrade in the future you already have your RCA's and power cable run. I'm his roomate we live right near the tweeter on 202. I think I've seen your car around do you have DTM tips on your muffler? I saw a sweet WRX pulling out of the car wash on main st in norristown last week. Was that you?

Default Car wash...

LowNotez,

I figured that was the way to hook up the switched power. Did you get a wiring harness to tap into (both male and female connectors) ? If so where did you pick them up? I need to get some as I don't want to splice into the OE harness.

Could well have been me you saw at the car wash, another guy I know has a blue rex and uses that place but his looks pretty standard at the moment. I generally use that place once a week, IIRC it was tuesday last week. Needs another wash but i'll wait til tomorrow afternoon as it's supposed to rain tonight.

The tips on the muffler are just straight tips (twin 3.5"). Sounds awesome, someone said it sounded like a World War 2 bomber coming down the road .

Cheers

Mark

No wiring harness I just spliced into the factory wires thats really the only way to do it. I wouldnt worry about it though you can always splice them back together if you remove the sub/amp.

Default Not me in Conshy

Jasno,

If the WR Blue one was in Conshy, just off Butler Pike, then it's a guy I work with (555 BAT on the i-club).
I live down at Kingswood apartments down on South Gulph Rd.

Talking mounting the basslink

i initially thought about nuts&bolts to mount the basslink, but i saw that the muffler was in the way to do that.

so i mounted the basslink by using a die and tapping into the left side of the trunk right next to the jack. i figured the sheet metal was thick enough to tap it and use machine bolts to mount it down.

it is a very strong mount. i dont think the bass will shake the screw loose any time soon.
