Hartke‘s popular HD Series continues to grow with the addition of the high-powered, lightweight HD508 Bass Combo. Packing four 8″ Hartke patented HyDrive speakers and a 500-watt Class D amplifier into a sleek enclosure weighing only 49 pounds, the HD508 provides exceptional bass tone to any rehearsal, stage or studio.
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. And specific to the HD508, packing four 8″ HyDrive speakers into a single cabinet creates a combined cone area that is larger, as well as able to reproduce a wider audio range, than that of a single 15″ speaker.
Power and Portability
Beyond the impeccable tone of the HyDrive speakers, the HD500 offers tremendous power in a highly-portable design. Its lightweight Class D amplifier produces an earth shaking 500 watts of power capable of filling any rehearsal space, recording studio or performance venue. And weighing just 35 pounds in all, the HD500 can be easily transported via a molded strap carry handle anywhere that needs more bass.
Shape Your Tone
A result of Hartke‘s many years of involvement in the bass community, the HD500 includes a selectable Shape control. This feature activates a specialized preset EQ curve designed to improve your tone through selective boosts and attenuations across the frequency range. The adjacent Shape variable filter, as well as a 3-band EQ, provides further customization.
With the exceptional tone of HyDrive speakers housed in a durable, highly portable enclosure, Hartke‘s HD500 Bass Combo is able to perform at levels far beyond ordinary bass combos.
