Model # if anyone knows? Any other info is a bonus
Hartke 2155 200 watt combo (discontinued) minus the 200 watt head...obviously. You can find replacement heads inexpensively on CL, the 'bay, etc. IIRC, the heads are secured by screws from the top so they don't require mounting ears. Hope that helps. Would make a nice rig on the cheap!
Awesome. Somebody rep this guy!
The amp is the HA2000? Also, this cab would be 8ohm?
Came in two versions, I believe...the 2000 and 3500. Either will work. The enclosure should be 8 ohms as the head allows the addition of an ext. cab (parallel). This tidbit requires verification, though.
If the cab doesn't have a eextension out, it is most likely a 4ohmn cab
Looks like my 1155 with the porting and cab size which is different from the 2155. It came with a 3500 for the head and pretty sure it was 8 ohm cab.
Mine is in a road case but you can google an image of an 1155
ETA: I bought mine new probably in 1990 or so. Haven't used it for years though. Good little combo
Yeah - it's an 1155. Came with a 3500 head and the cab is 8 ohms. Bought mine used in '93-ish. I pulled the head from the cab but still have both. I leave the cab at practice spaces as needed. Whole thing weighed 80 lbs - cab is 55 alone.
Actually, the combo uses the two speaker outs from the head, there are no jacks in the cab itself ... the internal speaker is 8 ohms, with the ability to add another 8 ohm cab out of the 2nd jack in the back of the head ...
FWIW there is a 1155 currently for sale on my local CL ... the little insignia down in the lower corner of the cab will give you the model, but it is too small to see in the pic the OP has posted ... but as mentioned it will be either the older 1155 that had the 3500 head, or the newer 2155 that came with the 2000 head ... both used the 115 and the 5" high freq alum cone driver
Anyone know what the power handling on the 15 would be? Looks like one of the older cones with fewer ribs.
Not a clue but you can PM Larry Hartke right here on TalkBass. From my own experience, I've found the 2000 head to be insanely loud given the seemingly modest specs.
Specs i got off of hartke site for the XL,
300 watts at 8 ohmn
Frequency response. 30Hz-2.5Hz
The cab i got these specs from is a little different, but should be close
I do not use Hartke 15's, so can only give a comparative .. the 410 XL from this design era of cabs was rated at 240 watts, and the current XL design era is rated at 400 watts ... going by that, I would think it would be safe to guesstimate power handling to be realistic about 50-60% of the 300, or 150-160 watts ... of course that depends completely on your EQ, what you expect the driver to reproduce as far as effects, and how closely you monitor what the speaker is telling you. With the Hartke 10's, I like to limit my drivers to about 50-60 watts each, and they are rated for 100 ... JMHO
I've talked to him. I ran across this at like 3 in the morning though. The 2000 seems like it would be good but I'm missing my 400rb/410xl stack so in my mind this thing is begging for a gk head. I'm really interested in the 5" though I must say.
Yeah I had a 410xl(older) and I've read that they don't like to see anything below like 200hz. I buy it cause every time I dug In on that cab it would sound like it was about to explode. But that's the thing about them. I've never had an aluminum 15 though.
