Hartke Introduces New Lightweight HyDrive HL Series Bass Cabinets


Hartke is excited to introduce the new lightweight HL Series Bass Cabinets to their innovative line of HyDrive professional bass cabinets.  All speaker configurations will be available Q2, 2021 at major music instrument retailers. The announcement was made for the NAMM 2021 Believe In Music Week virtual summit.

Lightweight Design

HL Series combine high-performance speakers with rugged construction using lightweight 16mm kiln-dried plywood which dramatically reduces the overall weight of the cabinets. A black textured paint finish, powder coated steel grille and chrome plated corners round out the robust build.

The HyDrive HL Series is available in four speaker configurations:

HL112: 1 x 12" HyDrive speaker + 1" HF / Lightweight Cabinet / 24.8 lb / 300 watts / 8 ohms
• HL210: 2 x 10" HyDrive speakers + 1" HF/ Lightweight Cabinet  / 29.5 lb / 500 watts / 8 ohms
• HL115: 1 x 15" HyDrive speaker + 1" HF / Lightweight Cabinet / 39.8 lb / 500 watts / 8 ohms
• HL410: 4 x 10" HyDrive speakers + 1" HF/ Lightweight Cabinet  / 47.6 lb / 1000 watts / 8 ohms


Classic Hartke Sound, Smoother Frequency Response

HL Series speakers feature Hartke’s patented HyDrive speaker with neodymium magnets which further reduce the weight. The outside curved, Kevlar®-loaded paper cone delivers a smooth, even response with a deep tone, while the inner straight, anodized aluminum cone produces highly accurate, distortion-free output. The speakers include a 1” horn loaded tweeter, with a 3-position level switch, that adds the high frequencies. The result is a clean, full tone with the clear fundamental of each note and natural overtones.
