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. The use of rare earth neodymium magnets also helps to maintain lightweight portability without sacrificing any of the legendary Hartke attack.
Power and Portability
Beyond the impeccable tone of the HyDrive speakers, the HD508 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 22 kg in all, the HD508 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 HD508 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 a HyDrive speaker housed in a durable, highly portable enclosure, Hartke‘s HD508 performs at levels far beyond ordinary bass combos.
