Question

Is 10 AWG wire enough to power the Basslink?

How do you make adjustments to the gain and x-over? Doesn't look like there's much room to get your hand in there?

10 gauge should be fine....the amp is rated at 200 watts....you should be fine but I would recommend 8 gauge. I am planning out my Alpine/Infinity system which will consist of the Bass Link in the factory compartment.

The owner's manual states no less than 12 AWG, so I'm assuming 10 AWG will be fine.

Jules, after having your bass link for a few days now, do you still like the sound?

Absolutely!! Sounds beautiful! I am truly content with the sound in my car! If you are thinking about it, just do it, itll be worth it!

PS, someone asked what kind of speakers I had. I answered but my post was deleted for some reason!

I have Infinity all around. model 60021 2way refs in the rear, 6.5s opf course.

Fronts are 6000cs 2way component speakers. the speakers come with tweets attached by a wire and a crossover.
The techs were easily able to put the tweets in the factory area.

Peace all!

I hate to sound like a total moron but I'm doing the exact same thing.....and why did you need to put a new factory cover on there? Was the original not ok?

His car didn't come with the speaker cover, just a blank panel.

To tell the truth I dont think that you need the speaker cover that I special ordered. I drove from the install with the stock cover over the whole enclosure and it sounded fine.


So if you want the ultra stealth look the hell with it. Throw the base link in your space and bury it!

I tried doing it last night...dang it ain't easy trying to mount that thing face down in there. Could there be less room to work? I ended up tracing fiberboard with the carpet and mounting it in the back. I saw someone else on here did it that way. It seems to be stable.

Good to know....this is the route I'm going to take. If I don't like the way it sounds, then I'll get the replacement cover.

The installers told me that it should sound better once I had put the perforated panel in but I really did not notice the difference. Then again I cant tell the difference between an excellent sound system and a flawless one.

If you decide you do want the Bose cover, dont sweat it. It is really cheap!! like 15 bucks. I got mine from ultimatez.com BTW if any are interested, they also sell the Bose woofer minus the amp. This is a free air Amp (or whatever they call it.) It needs no box. Plug it into an amp, bolt it in and its ready to go. An easy DIY mod.

I would be interested to hear about anybody installing the basslink in there themselves and how much they ended up taking apart.
p.s. In Monterey this weekend and some [email protected]$% popped off my z emblem on the back and took a screwdriver to another one trying to get it off and yanked off a bunch of paint. Like in Pulp Fiction it would have been worth him doing it if I could have caught him. Thats my second vandalsim, jealous [email protected]#ers!!

If you catch someone doing that let me know. I would like to help 're-educate' them on the subject of personal property!!

It is not as easy as it looks. I have these two metal hooks in the back kind of similar to what holds the glove box on the passenger side. Looks like they'll have to be removed for it to fit.

Does anyone know what is located below this area? I want to just mount it down instead of up. HOwever, I do not want to drill into the gas tank for obvious reason.

icepop456,
Do you have the BOSE system? I saw the picture post in this thread https://my350z.com/forum/showthread....threadid=22697
and I did not see any hook. Not sure if the hook already been taken out. I guess I will find out this weekend. If there is too much work, I will probably just put the basslink in trunk instead.
