Whether you're recording, performing, or practicing, the groundbreaking Hartke HyDrive HD Series Bass Cabinets give discerning bass players everything they need from a bass cab. Featuring a lightweight, yet roadworthy plywood construction, the HyDrive HD Bass Cabs come equipped with Hartke's revolutionary patented paper/aluminum HyDrive speakers to deliver all the depth, clarity, and tonal fullness that bass players demand. The HyDrive HD Cabs can handle a massive amount of power and come loaded with premium features including a 1" HF driver with a 3-position level control to tailor your top end, two Twist & Lock inputs, two 1/4" inputs, and more!

With its small, yet rugged design, the Hartke HyDrive HD112 is perfect for recording, practicing, or smaller gigs. It comes equipped with a single 12" HyDrive patented speaker featuring paper/aluminum hybrid cone drivers for exceptional warmth and attack. The black perforated steel grille offers outstanding protection while giving this amp an awesome modern look. The HD112 also features a lightweight, heavy-duty plywood construction along with convenient inset carry handles, which make this cabinet ideal for the gigging bassist.

The HyDrive Design
HyDrive speakers feature carefully crafted paper/aluminum hybrid cone drivers. The hybrid makeup delivers an exceptional blend of warmth and attack that can't be attained by traditional all-paper bass speakers. The outside curved Kevlar-loaded paper cone delivers smooth, even response with a deep tone, while the inner straight anodized aluminum cone produces highly accurate, distortion-free output.

Define Your Sound
The HyDrive HD cabinets provide depth and clarity that is unrivaled. The double-roll curvilinear surround limits the drivers from over excursion, while providing a smooth midband response. The result is a clean, full tone with the clear fundamentals of each note, as well as natural overtones to further define your sound.

Built To Perform
Optimized ferrite magnet assembly and steel chassis design deliver a maximum power to weight ratio to each of these HyDrive HD cabinets. In addition, the enclosures themselves are constructed from high-quality plywood with extensive bracing and dado joints, making them rigid, yet lightweight for superior projection and true sonic clarity. Their black perforated steel grilles add to their already strong, sleek look.

Good for Vic, good for me.


I honestly got this mainly for a practice amp at home (most practice amps just don't sound inspiring), with the possibility of using it as backup for small gigs in case my Phil Jones rig(also bought at SamAsh) ever fails or needs repair. It's a big deeper than I expected, but I love its sound. I love the switch for 4 and 8 Ohm selection, especially since I'm using it with a 4 Ohm Eden head so that extra versatility is very much welcome as I see myself buying another of these in the future. Regarding the cabinet itself, I know Hartke doesn't get as good rep as Aguilar, Phil Jones, Markbass, and other brands do but, honestly, if it's good for Victor Wooten, it's plenty good for me. And this is the high end of the spectrum in Hartke's cabinets. Plus, every time I used to go (back in the days when you could play shows) to a venue and saw a Hartke rig I'd be like "alright, Hartke." Then I'd plug in my bass and be like "holy cow, Hartke!!!" So that's why I bought this. You can't beat it for the price, and I'm incredibly happy with it!



Hartke HD 12


Super great speaker, is perfect for small venues.



Unexpected GOOD!!!


Awesome response coming from my 300w amp head, real clarity and great punch from a 12" speaker, its size is easy to handle and is light as well, recommended 100%.



Amazing punch and clarity!


I purchased this cabinet to pair with a Hartke LX5500 500-Watt Bass Amplifier Head and I'm thrilled with the results. If you're looking at Hartke speakers, it's because you want the wide frequency range that is not as apparent in other bass-specific cabs that can sound relatively more muffled -- even with a high-frequency driver. I did not compare this to the Hartke 1x15 or 2x10, but I can say without a doubt that I am getting more bottom and extended overall range when compared to my Fender Rumble 500v3 2x10 combo. Some of this is the amp, but I think it's mostly the speaker. All of that, PLUS this thing is super lightweight and compact!



Great compact bass cabinet for the price!


Great compact bass cabinet for the money! I love that this speaker can operate either 4-ohm or 8-ohm. It's great for small gigs and practice or added to another speaker for a very powerful compact bass stack. I've played bass for over 30 years and Hartke speakers have never disappointed me - they always sound GREAT!



Yes I would buy this product again.


The bass speaker cabinet is as advertised it was in like new condition and works just fine.



Excellent speaker cab


I upgraded from the previous model. I like the new design better. Hartke has made it more flexible in connectivity and goes well with my LH1000. I play extended guitars and without the specs, my guitars would be compromised if I used standard guitar rigs. The full frequency range is necessary to access all the nuisance the instrument provides. Sure, there is no capability to ramp up overdrive with this set of equipment as you would with a guitar amp, but nothing a valve pre-amp pedal cannot solve instead. This is a whole different ball game for extended guitar players.



I recommend this product


very toneful amp sounds great inspires you to play


California los angeles


I recommend this cab


I use this product for church worship sounds great use with hartke tx600 head works great together the tone to me is very good also you can change the ohms 4 or 8 I like the portability factor but I also plan to add an identical cab in the future to have 2 12s I recommend this product go for it



I love Hartke bass gear! I have a TX600 and 2 HD112's!


As usual, Matty Beale gave me great service, my new HD112 arrived in 2 days, a pleasant surprise because I like in the desert, 30 miles from Santa Fe. I will definitely call again for my future needs.
