Since taking the bass world by storm in 2007, Hartke HyDrive has emerged as one of the most innovative and popular products in the bass industry. Now, the HyDrive family is expanding thanks to the new HX112 HyDrive cabinet, a lightweight, powerful solution that makes life easy for performing bassists everywhere. HyDrive speakers fuse traditional paper and aluminum cones, giving players the warmth of paper and the punchy attack of aluminum. The HX112 features a single 12-inch, 300-watt HyDrive hybrid cone driver and a high frequency compression driver in a specially tuned, ported bass cabinet that weighs just under 30 pounds. Ideal for any playing style, the cabinet is dual-impedance, allowing a user to switch between 4 and 8 ohm impedances. "The 1 x 12 bass cabinet traditionally has a warm, solid bottom end that¿¿¿s tight sounding and never too boomy," says Larry Hartke, founder of Hartke Systems. "So we've taken the HyDrive technology and built it into a 1 x 12 configuration. The result is a 300 watt bass cab with awesome bottom end that only weighs 30 pounds!" If you need to be louder, adding a second HX112 will provide enough power to shake any stage. And to complement its lightweight portability, this cab also features inset side handles, removable casters, and a steel grill for safe and easy transport. "Like its HyDrive predecessors, the HX112 combines power, tone, and durability is a roadworthy cab that makes the trip to any stage or studio a breeze," says Mark Wilder, Director of Marketing for Samson. "Getting this much power in a lightweight solution makes the HX112 truly a bassist's dream come true."
