Light, portable and powerfull cabinet with great sound!
PeeVee, 17.10.2017
I play upright bass and for gigging I use two G&K CX210 cabs with an Ampeg PF-500 amp. For semi-acoustic rehearsals, I use the Ibanez Promethean P3110. Even though both setups works GREAT, I was looking for something even smaller, lighter and more flexible. The HD112 is the answer! I use one combined with a Trace Elliot ELF for rehearsals and small semi-acoustic gigs of these cabinets powered by the PF-500 for bigger venues. The HD112 has better specs than the previous HX112 and because I don't like the sound of Neodymium speakers, this HD112 is ideal for me. It's the only speaker in the HD series that has double coils so it's switchable from 8 Ohms (I reckon one 8 Ohm coil) to 4 Ohms (I assume two 8 Ohm coils in parallel) which is ideal and offers optimal flexibility. The sound of this cab is nicely balanced. It has great low end but not the sub lows that you get from 1x15 or 2x10 cabinets (I don't need for upright bass anyway). The lows and mids are very defined and the 3-position switchable tweeter delivers crisp highs if required. I tend to say that the speaker has very good efficiency because only one cabinet in 8 Ohm mode really fills the room in combination with the T.E. ELF (rated at 130 Watts at 8 Ohms). I think the HD112 looks fantastic and it's very well built. It weighs only 15 kgs and the size is very convenient for transportation. Even though they're not too heavy, I would have liked a second handle bar but then again, it's very light weight so even with one handle it's easy to carry around. For me, it's the ideal (light, portable and powerfull) setup combined, especially comabined with the T.E. ELF. A dream come true for the travelling bassplayer ;-)

Better than the HX112
Curto, 15.08.2017
I used to own the HX112 cab but sold it.
On paper, the specs of this new updated cab looked impressive. The frequency is now 35Hz?17kHz, as opposed to the 41Hz?17kHz frequency response of the older model. That's more low end response than the 210 and 115 cab! It's tuned exceptionally well. I've paired it with the TC BH250 head which works well at both 4 and 8 ohms with plenty of headroom. The bottom end is definitely there but not too boomy. The HF driver doesn't hiss too much. I have it set at -6dB.
It would be nice to have two handles on either side but I don't plan on carting it around much.

Works with Laney Nexus-SLS very well. 4/8ohm regulation is useful. Looks great

Formidable !!!!!! Polyvalent, puissant, assez neutre. Marche aussi pour une batterie !
Darkwood07, 17.05.2020
Acheté pour jouer de ma basse passive Yamaha trbx174 ( dont j'ai changé les micros d'origine pour des P/J Seymour Duncan).
J'ai longtemps hésité entre un cabinet 110 ou 210 plus compact mais moins de son de basse, du 115 plus grave et rond mais plus encombrant.
Un 112 est un bon compromis, et j'ai opté pour le Hartke.
Ce qui m'a fait choisir ce modèle est qu'on peut le switcher en 4 ou 8 ohms, donc on peut avoir de la souplesse au niveau du pré ampli ou des raccords avec d'autres cabinets.

On dit souvent qu'il faut mieux utiliser des têtes d'ampli de la même marque que celle du cabinet. Pour ma part j'utilise un ampli TC Electronic BQ500 ( sortie en 4 ohms) et ça marche très bien. ( voir mon avis au sujet de l'ampli).
Pou jouer à la maison je le cabinet en 8 ohms et volume moyen sur l'ampli, si on passe en 4 ohms alors ça envoie !
Autre bonne nouvelle le tweeter et débrayable ( on-off) ou on peut réduire un peu sa présence ( de -6db), donc selon les styles on peut varier : le laisser pour du slap clinquant ou l’arrêter et monter les basses et les low medium sur le BQ500 pour un son plus rond et chaud.
Le cabinet comme le BQ 500 ne colorent pas beaucoup le son, je le modifie avec une pédale d'effet Zoom B1Xon, et ça marche bien.
Je ne fais de la basse que depuis 2 ans mais ma Yamaha sort super bien dessus.
Je joue aussi de la batterie électro et je me sert de l'entrée AUX IN du BQ500 pour la raccorder au cabinet et ça marche aussi très bien. On peut jouer basse et batterie du coup en même temps. Très sympa !
Je n'ai pas eu l'occasion de le tester à volume poussé et dans de grands espaces mais il a un très bon potentiel.
La grille est rigide et solide, le revêtement pas très fragile. Seul bémol : une seule poignée, 2 auraient été pas mal. Relativement pas trop lourd ni encombrant.
Bref très très intéressant, polyvalent, moins cher que d'autres marques en 112 telles MarkBass ou Orange.
Livré par Thomann sans problème super bien emballé, carton solide Hartke d'origine bien renforcé, pas de chocs à déplorer.
Bref, je vous le conseille sauf si vous êtes fan de son très typé...
