OVERVIEW

A strong, portable bass cabinet that will withstand heavy gigging while providing a contemporary and stylish aesthetic to any stage.

With Hartke's HyDrive Series 112 300W 1x12" Bass Speaker Cab, you get the best of both worlds: the warm tone of traditional paper cones and the clear, punchy attack of aluminum. HyDrive's patented Hybrid Cone Technology produces a speaker that uses an outside paper cone to push a warm, deep low frequency and an inner aluminum cone that produces mids and highs that cut while still remaining sweet. The result is a revolutionary improvement in bass speaker technology.

Hartke brings you the next bass cabinet in the HyDrive series: HyDrive 112. Suitable for any playing style, this unit is a specially tuned, ported bass cabinet whose key components include a single 12-inch, 300-watt HyDrive neodymium hybrid cone driver and a 1-inch titanium high frequency compression driver. Designed to accommodate any bass player, the speaker is engineered as a dual-impedance driver, allowing you to switch between 4 and 8-ohm impedances. The cabinet's handle, and steel grill provide a contemporary and stylish aesthetic to any stage or studio.

With these features, HyDrive 112 bridges the gap between small, quiet gigs and big, loud shows. And it only weighs 30 pounds!

For you bassists that specialize in entertaining the coffee house, HyDrive 112 (HX112) is your double shot latte. Not only is the HX112 ideal for small, quiet gigs based on its extremely portable, lightweight enclosure, but for the warm, solid bottom end tones that are never too boomy. Despite the hefty power handling that the cabinet possesses, HX112 remains attractive to performers due to the system's multi-level impedance feature. Instead of running your HX112 at maximum heat for the duration of your set in a low-key jazz lounge, you can conserve power by doubling the cabinet's impedance level. Save it for your next show at The Forum.

For you bassists who rely on your full stacks to drive your fans wild, HX112 is your double shot of whiskey. The addition of a second HX112 will provide you with your coveted full stack look and will surely provide you enough power to shake every stage on the world tour. Speaking of touring, everything about the HX112 screams roadworthy durability: reserve power, steel grill, and inset side handles. In addition, the HX112 is shaped with the highest quality plywood with extensive bracing and dado joinery, encasing true sonic quality within a rigid, yet lightweight enclosure.

    This 12 cab is amazing. I pair it with a Carvin micro bass amp and it sounds awesome.Very clear with great bass tones. The 4/8 ohm switch is the real catch..a great addition and other companies should do the same.

    Comments about Hartke HyDrive Series 112 300W 1x12" Bass Speaker Cabinet:

    Just got two of these cabs. Super lightweight. Sound is great. Plenty of clean low end with very tasteful high end "punch". A perfect compromise between 15s and 10s. Tried them under a GK 400rbIV and then my old Hartke HA3000. They've made me fall back in love with the Hartke head. And with switchable impedance, I can run a single cab at 4 ohms in small venues and still punch through. Clear, clean and tasteful.

      Comments about Hartke HyDrive Series 112 300W 1x12" Bass Speaker Cabinet:

      Just got it recently. I am loving how light it is. I can literally haul it with one hand. The sound is pretty good too. I was surprised by how much power it could deliver. I am not a huge fan of the Ampeg sound, I prefer the slightly lower end/boomy sound of Fender amps. This one is definitely closer to the Fender sound on the spectrum and it definitely can deliver the low notes with clarity. Open E sounds pretty awesome.

        If you are looking for a stage sound monitor that can DI into the house system or if you are playing a small venue or just for you home studio use, this will do the job.

        Comments about Hartke HyDrive Series 112 300W 1x12" Bass Speaker Cabinet:

        I run the LH500 into my Hydrive 112 and... Wow! truly superb sound coming from such a small box. I have owned GK 112 Neo, and the Hartke Hydrive 112 is MUCH better sounding.

        Puts out plenty of volume. I don't forsee I will need any additional cabinets. Anything that this one cabinet can't handle would be a scenario where I would want PA anyway.

        The 4 ohm / 8 ohm switch seems like such a common sense option. Why do we not see this from more manufacturers?

        I am very satisfied with my purchase.

        Comments about Hartke HyDrive Series 112 300W 1x12" Bass Speaker Cabinet:

        I love these cabinets (Please see my review of the GenzBenz 6.2), I bought 2 of them and they are super versatile, and can handle up to 300 Watts continuous each, they are switchable between 4 and 8 Ohms so I use one cabinet with my GenzBenz 3.0 for practice @ 4 Ohms and combined when needed with my GenzBenz 6.2 @ 8 Ohm setting (4 Ohms total). They are crystal clear and have a built in compression driver that is 3 way switchable. Super response and pushes a lot of air, good construction, the only problem was the vinyl covering was not very well glued down at the seams but a little glue fixed that. These speakers are very easy to transport (weigh in at 30 lbs). The speakers are well worth the money and is whole heartily recommended.
