HyDrive transducers represent a revolutionary improvement in bass speaker technology and a major leap forward, fusing paper and aluminum in a roadworthy speaker design that is more robust and efficient than anything available.
With Hartke's HyDrive series, you get the best of both worlds: the warm tone of traditional paper cones and the clear, punchy attack of aluminum. HyDrive's patented Hybrid Cone Technology produces a speaker that uses an outside paper cone to push a warm, deep low frequency and an inner aluminum cone that produces mids and highs that cut, yet still remain sweet.

One of the most important advances with the HyDrive speaker is its power-to-weight ratio. A HyDrive 10" speaker weighs 40% less than traditional speakers and handles 250 watts for the highest power-to-weight ratio of any bass speaker available. But the innovation runs even deeper. Because of its cast aluminum frame and neodymium magnets, HyDrive speakers operate cooler and deliver more reliable power handling at peak performance.

HyDrive HX410 Bass Cabinet
Professional performance and ample power were two critical considerations that heavily factored into the design of the HX410. The need for contemporary bassists to reach high volume levels with seamless performance is a common demand these days, but being able to do so with a durable, portable cabinet that only weighs 70 pounds is practically unheard of. This is where the HX410 bass cabinet comes in.
With power to spare, the HX410 features four 250 watt 10-inch HyDrive neodymium hybrid cone drivers for a total power handling of 1,000 watts. This HyDrive cabinet is beautifully appointed with a steel grill, steel corners, recessed handles and removable casters, making it both resilient and easy to transport. The HyDrive HX410 is a sealed, dual-chamber cabinet constructed from the highest quality plywood with extensive bracing and dado joints, making it rigid yet lightweight for superior projection and true sonic clarity.
The HyDrive HX410 was designed for demanding players who need critical performance at intense volume levels. Perfectly suited for all kinds of bass playing, Hartke engineers also specifically designed the HX410 with the midrange frequencies rock players rely on night after night on stages all over the world. With the power and versatility of the HyDrive speakers housed in a perfectly suited enclosure, it's clear that the HX410 performs on a level far beyond any ordinary bass cabinet.
