Is there any difference other than the color of the Hartke HD112 from the HX112 hydrive cabs?
HX has selectable impedance between 4 and 8 ohms
So does the HD112

No it doesn't. It says either 4 or 8 ohms. No switch on the back
Plus the HX is a few pounds lighter. I've only played the HX so I can't speak for the HD. The HX was a nice light little cab, but not alot of bottom end for my taste.
maybe I'm wrong..
The cutaway drawings of the drivers makes me think the HD models have ceramic magnets.
I could be wrong though...
Edit> HD driver has stamped steel frame instead of cast aluminum.
You're not wrong.
I've been curious about this as well. I have a pair of the HX 112s and love them. Only problem I have is the Tolex rips very easily.
The HD's have a Ferrite magnet vs. Neo
The HD's paper cone has been reinforced with Kevlar vs paper alone
The HD's have a steel chassis vs. aluminum
The HD's = 50Hz–17kHz vs. 30Hz–17kHz frequency response (10" speakers)
The HD's = 35Hz–17kHz vs. 41Hz–17kHz frequency response (12" speaker)
The Hd's = 45Hz–17kHz vs. 20Hz–17kHz frequency response (15" speaker)
Nice response... thanks
I have check the hartke KB15 /KB12 and NEW HD500 combo driver spec , all of them use Neo magnet and have same structure like higher grade HX's driver.
For the price, i think KB15/12 and HD500 is worth for money.
But , at my local GC, HX 112/410 price is cheaper than HD 112/410 !
Well I just pulled the trigger on one hd112..should get it this week... hopefully get to try it out this weekend..
Here is the reply from Hartke.
So, do the combos use the same drivers as the full size cabs?
A hd212 cab would be very tempting, if it were ever made. Vertical alignment, of course.
I bought three of these cabs (HD112) a couple of months ago and I am really happy with them.
They sound great. Super quick and articulate with plenty of gut pounding bottom end and the ability to cut through the mix.
I use one, two, or three of them depending on the venue and the band that I am playing with.
Powered with a mesa D-800 (switchable to 2 ohms) they command authority yet remain very musical.
Has your experience with these cabs been as positive as mine? (see post above).
Well...its kind of a mixed bag.. I tried it in a small club at 4 ohms..on a stand..and I could barely hear it. Them I tried it paired with a pair of 2 x10 s and it sounded great..but the 210 cab I have is heavey as heck! I think that if I got another one ..it would probably be perfect.. still in testing tho..
What's holding in the drivers on the HD? Wood screws or threaded inserts?
