OVERVIEW

A hybrid 1 x 15" that unleashes tones of clear low end, perfect for any application.

HyDrive transducers represent a revolutionary improvement in bass speaker technology and a major leap forward, fusing paper and aluminum in a roadworthy speaker design that is more robust and efficient than anything available.

With Hartke's HyDrive series, 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, yet still remain sweet.

One of the most important advances with the HyDrive speaker is its power-to-weight ratio. A HyDrive speaker weighs 40% less than traditional speakers and delivers 250 watts for the highest power-to-weight ratio of any bass speaker available. But the innovation runs even deeper. Because of its cast aluminum frame and neodymium magnets, HyDrive speakers operate cooler and deliver more reliable power handling at peak performance.

A revolutionary speaker like HyDrive warrants a cabinet design that properly transfers it sound, which is why Hartke took almost as much time developing an appropriate cabinet as we did engineering the speakers themselves. The ported cabinet featured on the HX115 was specifically engineered to extend low frequencies and provide better bass projection, so you can be sure that the power and tone of your HyDrive speaker are dispersed with great precision and articulation.

Everything about the HX115 says roadworthy durability: power to spare, steel grills, inset side handles, and each cabinet comes with four removable steel casters for easier transport. The HX115 is a ported cabinet made from the highest quality plywood with extensive bracing and dado joinery, making it rigid yet lightweight.

Delivering 500 watts of robust, bone-crushing power, it also boasts the lightest 15-inch bass speaker ever made. Put an HX115 cabinet on the bottom with an HX410 on top for the classic two-cabinet rig that thunders so much bass it will literally make your hair stand on end. With the HX115, you get reliable, powerful, portable performance night after night.

    Comments about Hartke HyDrive Series 115 500W 1x15" Bass Speaker Cabinet:

    I recently ordered a pair of these hydrive 15's. When you can give them all the power they require they sound AMAZING. Very loud, and great frequency responses. This cab does very well with midrange as well! not just for low end. But it does crazy amounts of low end and midrange. I can finally feel all the notes i'm playing. The tolex is peeling off already but that is pretty common in the cabs i have had, could be the humidity in my region (mid west). Over all, this is a great, deep, LIGHT, versitile cab that i plan on owning more of! Don't think twice, just buy it!

        Comments about Hartke HyDrive Series 115 500W 1x15" Bass Speaker Cabinet:

        I have use my hydrive 115 cab a few times for band practice, it is amazing along with my hartke ha3500 350W head. only Problem i had was, the two screws closest to the speaker on the grill were loose and rattled. i simply removed the two screws and the glued peice of wood they were attached to and it fixed the rattling problem. i love the way the aluminum cone gives a bright punch, but you can still feel the floor shake. also like that you can have the horn on off or -6db. i recently played an ampeg 810 with an ampeg amp. it doesn't compare to the hydrive aluminum cone. love this cab, love hartke. plan on moving up to the 1000watt head and adding another 115 :)
