Since 1985, Hartke has become a name recognized world-wide for
revolutionizing bass amplification. Their original unique aluminum cone
speakers recognizable by the distinctive silver cones® produced a distinct bass
tone with a broader musical range than previously heard, inspiring a new
generation of bass players with their articulate low-end and extended mids and
highs. Designing the amplification for the ideal marriage of power to speaker
cabinet was the next natural step for Hartke.
Ideal for Hartke bass cabinets, Hartke bass amps seamlessly integrate with
other bass cabinet combinations as well. They combine the best of tube and
solid-state technologies and have proven their durability and versatility on
the road and in the studio. Additional features include new, intuitive front
panel controls including tone and dynamics, allowing for instant adjustments
With multiple series to choose from you'll have no problem finding the
perfect combination of bass amplification and cabinet.
HyDrive Bass Speakers
HyDrive Speakers comprise Hartke's latest innovation in bass cabinet design.
In fact, HyDrive is so innovative it has been issued a US Patent. One of the
most important features of Hydrive speaker design is its power-to-weight ratio
which weighs 40% less than traditional speakers and, due to the aluminum frame
and neodymium magnets, runs cooler during operation for increased reliability.
Their hybrid speaker design fuses aluminum and paper together for the perfect
marriage of clean, warm tones and punchy, robust attacks. Now you can cut
through a mix but still retain that warm, rounded presence.
XL Bass Speakers
What made Hartke famous? The trademarked aluminum cone drivers® of course.
The XL Series Cabinets fully represent the technology that made them famous for
their clear, wide-range tone and punchy attack characteristics. All XL bass
speaker cabinets are specifically tuned and calibrated to produce the smooth
response and performance required on the road and studio alike.
AK Series Bass Speaker Cabinets
For those that desire the tonality of a classic bass speaker, the AK Series
by Hartke represents a return to traditional paper cone drivers. Naturally warm
and colored, these full-range rugged AK's have the added twist of a 1-inch
titanium compression driver to help round out the upper frequencies.
The Hartke Kilo is the top dog for Hartke bass amps. It combines
ground-shaking power with Hartke's classic sound, a great interface, additional
tonal flexibility, and an all-tube Class-A preamp circuitry.
LH Series amplifiers can be considered the ideal mate for the hybrid HyDrive
cabinets. They feature a Class-A tube front-end with a solid-state output, some
tone shelving controls for quick adjustments with a little more funk, and
additional limiter switches to keep your power under control.
