Hartke has announced the arrival of the HD500 Bass Combo, the latest addition to the brand’s popular HD Series.
The high-powered, lightweight HD500 Bass Combo packs two 10” Hartke patented HyDrive speakers with rare earth neodymium magnets, a 500-watt Class D amplifier into a sleek enclosure weighing only 35 pounds.
The HD500 also features Hartke’s patented HyDrive speakers that transformed speaker technology by blending paper and aluminum materials into a speaker cone that produces an exceptional blend of warmth and attack that can’t be attained by traditional all-paper cones. The use of rare earth neodymium magnets helps to maintain lightweight portability without sacrificing any of the legendary Hartke attack.
The HD500 includes a selectable Shape control that can be used to activate a specialized preset EQ curve designed to improve tone through selective boosts and attenuations across the frequency range. The adjacent variable Shape filter, as well as a 3-band EQ, provides further tone customization.
The HD 500 is available now for $599.99.
