    How many of you (if any) have tried or own one of these NEW Hartke Hydrive HD 115 cabs? They definitely LOOK different (I like the new look), BUT, Are they a lot better sounding than the older (silver grill) Hydrive 115? Are they Punchier? Deeper? Warmer sounding? Can they handle more power? Inquiring minds wanna know, but can't get to a place to check one out anytime in the near future, Thanks. HyDriveHD115-xlarge. 12388392_800.
  2. There's a thread about this somewhere here. The speaker has been changed. Different materials being used and lower frequency response if I remember correctly. Haven't heard any of the new ones yet. I'm still digging my last generation 12s.

    Thanks, So I'm assuming the overall sound/tone is better/improved because it's $100 more then the first version; I mean, it's got to be more than just the look of it
  5. Better is in the ear of the beholder I guess. It should sound different. Like I said above, I'm still really liking my "older" ones. The only criticism I've ever had is that the Tolex/vinyl/ whatever rips and snags very easily.

    Yeah the newer ones "look" pretty durable.
