Just traded in my Hartke 2x10's for two 1x12 Hydrive cabs because I wanted a deeper tone and less weight. I've been told that they were a perfect match for the LH500 which I have. At practice the other night I fired them up and started to wail on them and I actually had to turn the amp down they were so loud.
In the 60's we would never play bass through anything smaller than a 15, but these 12's kick ass. They were a little pricey at $400 a pop, but I am pleasantly surprised.

I haven't played the 112, but I run a hydrive 410 with a ha3500 and I'm always happy with this set up.

A follow up on these 1x12 cabs. First time using them for an outside gig at a golf course where you can play as loud as you want. At first I wasn't too impressed with the sound I was getting outside, so I turned the bass and volume up a notch and went through about 5 songs. While playing I noticed that only one speaker was moving. At a break, I found that the ohm switch on the back was half between 4 and 8 so the speaker wasn't getting any power. Switched it to 8ohms turned down the amp and played the second set loud as hell with both speakers working, what a difference.

I'm also a convert to 12" speakers. Plenty of definition and boom (in a good way).
I also use a pair of these and they do indeed rock!
Here they are in action at an outdoor gig.
Amp is an Aguilar Tonehammer 500.

I have been gigging two of these for over two years, could not be happier. These are very underrated cabs IMHO. I removed the rubber feet and changed the corner guards so that i could stack them lengthwise (handles on top). It makes for a taller stack and a slightly smaller footprint. Good stuff :hyper:

As cool as a wall of sound looks... and may sound. When it comes to quality of sound and lugging the things around, I'm really happy with what the different audio engineers have done to make bass amps light weight, sound great and relatively small. I'm happy with my TCE BG250 I'd like to try one of their 210 vertical combos some day.
A 1x12 combo for practice with a second 1x12 cab for bigger gigs may be just what I need. ( well, want ).
