Hartke's made revolutionary innovations in the bass amplification industry with the HyDrive series of combo amps and speaker cabinets. The HyDrive series utilizes patented Hybrid Cone Technology which employs an outer paper cone to produce a deep, juicy low-end in conjunction with an inner aluminum cone which will give your mids and highs a nice punch while still remaining sweet.

The power-to-weight ratio is one of the most substantial advancements of the HyDrive speakers. The weight of the HyDrive speaker is 40% less then your typical speaker and puts out 250 watts for the maximal power-to-weight ratio compared to any bass speaker on the market.

The innovation continues even further. The HyDrive speakers, due to their cast aluminum frame and neodymium magnets, are capable of delivering more reliable power handling at peak performance and allow for cooler operation.

The HyDrive 112 Bass Cabinet can be used for a variety of applications and suits any style of playing. This specially tuned, ported bass cabinet features a single 12-inch 300 watt HyDrive neodymium hybrid cone drive as well as a 1-inch titanium high frequency compression driver. Designed to conform to the needs of bass players everywhere, the HyDrive 112 is engineered as a dual-impedance driver, enabling you to switch between both 4 and 8-ohm impedances.

Aside from the HyDrive 112's modern and aesthetically pleasing appearance, this cabinet was crafted  with the professional musician in mind. The HyDrive112 features a steel grill, inset side handles, the highest quality plywood with extensive bracing and dado joinery. The rugged, road-worthy construction of the HyDrive 112 is capable of withstanding prolonged abuse that is typically brought on by gigging.

With these features, the HyDrive 112 is capable of bridging the gap between small, quiet gigs and big, loud shows.

For you bassists that specialize in entertaining the coffee house, the HyDrive 112 is your double shot latte. The durability and portability of the light-weight, 30 pound HyDrive 112 makes this cabinet perfect for those small, quiet gigs. The HyDrive 112 will give your bass tone juicy low-end without being too boomy. Despite the hefty power handling that the cabinet possesses, HyDrive112 remains attractive to performers due to the system's multi-level impedance feature. Instead of running your HyDrive 112 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, the HyDrive 112 is your double shot of whiskey. By adding another HyDrive 112 to your rig you can easily acquire that powerful ground-shaking bass along with the coveted full stack look.

Light and gorgeous. Hartke really upped the ante on this one. I coupled it with my Tx600 and I can get from my car to the venue in one trip. I'm buying another one as soon as I can for those gigs that require more volume. But for 99.9% of gigs this is all you need. It records like a dream too, that horn is GREAT!

Good deal


Using this cab for upright bass, paired with an 112 Eden cab and Carvin Bx700 amp. Very portable, loud, and lightweight. The hybrid cone and Tweaker really bring out the slaps. Love the switchable 4-8 ohm feature.

Giant Killer!


lightweight(30 lbs) solid sounding very natural tone and high output for its size but switches in rear need protection but overall it is a outstanding cab. I am powering 2 of them with a BBE B Max preamp into a Crown XLS 1000(stereo) very powerful and versatile for the size. Works well(cuts) even LOUD blues gigs!

Lightweight and Loud!!!


These little cabinets are amazing! at 30 lbs. they are a joy to lug around. They have great low end and can handle some power for its size. The coolest feature is the switchable impedance so you can always use the full power of your amp. Get two of them you can use one @4 ohms for rehearsals and small gigs, or use two @ 8ohms for just about any other gig. Pairs up nicely with the LH or HA series of Hartke heads. Great bang for the buck! David C. Johnson, bassist Aaron Neville Quintet, Solo Atrist
