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.

Building its first custom bass cabinet in 1984, Hartke soon revolutionized the world of bass amplification in 1985 with the full-scale development of a unique aluminum cone driver that produced a bass tone with far broader dynamics than had ever been heard before. Since then, Hartke has gone on to create a full line of bass amplifiers, cabinets and combos that are used by some of the world’s greatest musicians.
