Hartke HD112 HyDrive HD Bass Speaker Cabinet (1x12", 300 Watts)

Switchable impedance, lightweight design, and plywood construction make the Hartke HD112 HyDrive HD cabinet a versatile and portable option for bassists.

The Hartke HyDrive HD112 is a compact, single 12" bass speaker cabinet designed for the modern bass player. Light enough to carry with one hand, this 300-watt cabinet is loud enough to be used on its own or is a great addition to any bass stack. Its selectable 4 or 8-ohm design allows you to get the most power out of your amplifier in any situation.

The HyDrive HD112 is a vented cabinet constructed from solid plywood with extensive bracing and dado joints, making it rigid, yet lightweight for superior projection and minimal energy loss. In addition, the HD112 is furnished with a black perforated steel grille, a recessed steel handle and steel corners, making it both resilient and easy to transport.

HyDrive Evolved

The HyDrive HD speaker design features a 2-piece composite cone that merges a straight anodized aluminum inner cone with a curved, Kevlar-loaded paper outer cone that delivers clean, clear output with an extremely smooth response. The double-roll curvilinear surround limits the driver from over excursion, while providing a smooth midband response. The result is a clean, full tone with the clear fundamentals of each note, as well as natural overtones to further define your sound. Additionally, a round wire voice coil and vented former design has been incorporated to provide a nice low-end zing and that optimizes power handling.

"A great little cab"

I bought this cab to have a lighter option to carry and use for smaller gigs and practices. I love the switchable 4/8 ohm toggle, which is another reason i bought it. Let me add too that its lightweight! I'm currently using an Aguilar ToneHammer 350 which is a 4ohm amp, it is also lightweight itself - i can now carry my amp, cab, and bass in one trip.I've used it both as a stand alone cab, and I have also paired it with my Hartke 4x10xl cab for huge sound. With a smaller 3 piece group it was plenty loud, but with my 5 piece band (and a louder drummer) i was pushing the limits of its capabilities, which was easily remedied by adding the 4x10. ;)Having the option of switching between 4 and 8 ohms is a huge advantage. The other advantage is its weight. Overall im very pleased with it. It produces warm round tones, and sharp snappy slap tones both with ease. I only ever noticed a slight "burpyness" when maxed out trying to keep up with a loud drummer (which i fully expected) but in every other instance it has just been a great little cab!
