Smile Baslink

I have the infinity Basslink II install in my 530i It's place in the rear right corner. What I did was to just lower one half Of the back seat where the subwoofer sits.This is feasible for me because I never have any back seat passengers and I have tinted windows so no one outside the car knows this.I also listen to a lot of jazz.I thought about cutting through the ski hatch but did'nt have the BALLS to proceed.If this works for you try it,oh by the way the Basslink is a fine choice if you don't listen to rap music.

I just ordered all the equipment for my car. I'm getting a single ten inch in a custom box that will be ported through the rear armrest. I told the shop to make it as close to stock as possible. If I open the trunk I don't want people to know I have a sub in there.

What did they use to tap into the Audio Signal?

not sure, I have not gotten it done yet. It will be a week before the stuff gets in, but aparantly they go off the factory radio. I'm taking it to a high line shop and paying more so if they screw something up they can pay to get it fixed.

Am betting that they will use LOC's off the speaker wire going to the factory subs. Not the correct way to do things, but is the easiest and is the most common. Will not sound the best seeing that you will be stuck using the stock crossover points from the stock amplifier.

From what i have read so far, there is no way to patch into the audio signal before the stock amplifier, will be looking further into this over the summer once it is nice outside and i have the time.

I did this to my 2001 740iL.

well - if they haven't done it yet - and they plan to do it right - i agree with NTB. they should absolutely us an LOC (line output converter) that converts balanced audio signals to unbalanced.

the "right way" to do it if you don't have DSP would be to x-over the full-range signal befor it hits the factory amp. to do that, you would need 2 LOC's.





with DSP, you could use one LOC off the sub speaker outs.




good luck :-)
