Infinity Basslink 2

So I bought a Basslink 2 powered subwoofer for my car, an LT sedan, and I am having some problems. I thought it'd be easy. THe sub comes with speaker level inputs on it, as well as RCA. With both, the subwoofer turns on but intermittentely, and favors staying on when the volume is low on my stock headunit. Any idea whats going on?

It seems like maybe the sub has an auto shutoff if it is not being supplied the correct amount of power? Any ideas or suggestions are greatly greatly appreciated. Sadly this sub is past its return date. So don't tell me it's broken...Ill be pissed

Do you have a remote lead (blue wire) hooked up anywhere or does the Basslink use an internal on/off switch?

How do you have it hooked up? Are you using a Line Out Converter or the speaker level inputs on it? You've tried both is what it sounds like in the way you're wording it.

I guess I don't really understand what you're saying in the post. You say it favors staying on when there's low volume, but then you say it might have an auto shutoff when not being supplied enough power...Is it only on with low volume or does it work when you turn the volume up?

I'm not familiar with that unit, so at the moment, without more info, I can't help you. I have an MTX X Thunderlink and it's super easy to get running.

I used a line out converter spliced into one of the rear speakers for signal. I then did the remote lead (blue wire)...connected it to the fuse box in the cabin. Lastly, power and ground.
