The 1 x 12" Cab for Bass Players

Not every gig requires a huge bass rig. You don't want to take your 8 x 10" cab to a coffee shop! The Hartke HyDrive HX112 bass cabinet is the perfect solution for those smaller gigs to larger shows. At 30 lbs. and with a small footprint, this cab is easily transportable. The reduced weight is thanks to the lightweight neodymium HyDrive speaker. This specialized speaker has a paper outer cone for all the warm lows and an aluminum inner cone that produces the mids and highs with a sweetness like no other. Even though the HyDrive HX112 is small in size, this cab will handle 300 watts of bass thumping power. The built-in high-frequency switch can be turned off in case you are not a fan of tweeters in your bass rig. Both stylish and functional, the Hartke HyDrive HX112 bass cabinet will be an excellent addition to your rig.

One of my favorite purchas

So I need to say I've had this thing for 8 months. I got the 210 with this. First they're incredibly complimenting together. Second they're incredibly light and convenient to carry around. This particular speaker shines vividily though. It handles 300 Watts, allows you to switch between 4 and 8 ohms, and helps add extended lows that the 10 inch speakers don't push. Granted I'll say the 210 is a better cabinet, power wise, but this thing impressed me as I wasn't expecting it's sound quality and power handling. The tweeter is a welcome touch. 210 and 112 are the new 410 and 115. I'd highly recommend this cabinet if you're looking for power handling and sound quality on top of convenience!

Awesome

This cabinet is great. It sound really good and the tone is fantastic. I needed a small cab that I could carry down the stairs and for small jobs that fits in the back seat of the car. This is perfect.. The size and weight is easy to handle and carry.Don't let the size fool you....it can handle 300 watts. Us older guys get tried of lugging gear around and if your a bass player it is hard to get away from big cabinets. If you needed more than just get 2 of these bad boys.I use it with a TC 250 head and I also use it as a stage monitor for my keyboards. Another great feature is you can change the ohms from 4 to 8. That is handy to have.It is made really nice too.

Incredible Compact and Powerful Cabinet

I was looking to downsize my existing rig (an Ampeg PF-500 and a GK MBE 4x10). I did not want to part with my Ampeg but wanted a cabinet small and compact yet powerful enough to handle the amp. I've tried 15" and 10" speakers and heard a lot about how a 12" is like combining both. The HyDrive HX112 was the perfect answer. I play in a contemporary church band and this has more than enough volume to handle playing with two other guitar players, a keyboard play (with drum machine), and many singers. The sound is very smooth with a tight bottom, crisp highs,and a nice mid-range sound. In addition, I also play in a rock band with two guitar players and a drummer. Paired with the Ampeg PF-500 head, there is plenty of power (running the cab at 8 ohms for 300 watts). This cab is also sharp looking. The final touch was the cover I ordered direct. This cover is very heavy-duty and fits the cabinet perfectly. At 30 lbs, my back is very happy and so am I with the sound.

Hartke HyDrive blew me away

This cab is small but amazing! What turned me on to it was the fact that you can switch from 8ohm to 4ohm and get the right amout of output from your head of choice. This compact cab is perfect for smaller gigs, home rehearsal, or studio use. The sound is bright, punchy, clear, yet also warm. Hartke has blown me away with mixing the brightness with the warmth making this a perfect cab for any tones I want to dial in. I'd love to hear the 4-10...I'm sure it's just as impressive.

Balanced Tone, light, and well constructed.

I was in the market for a 1x12 cab and I purchased this cab solely based on its specs and functionality. Being a 5string player the 40hz rating was a major plus as well as a switchable 4 to 8 ohm switch. I use this cab with a Genz Benz 3.0 running 300watts at 4ohms. I was very impressed to hear a balanced sound from the cab. It does not have a round or scooped sound but very even response. I also glad to discover the mounting for the grill has rubber shims to absorb vibration, a rare thing to find on cheaper cabs. The horn is not harsh but very musical sounding and to my ear sounds the best at the -6db position. The Hydrive cone gives the familiar paper cone low end we all love with a nice blend of snappiness from the aluminum. I would highly recommend this cab to anyone looking for a portable cab to use alone or paired. I think the detailed construction, tone, and function will impress any bassist.
