The Hartke 410XL V2 is a speaker cabinet for the amplifier heads of bass guitarists. It's a reissue of a classic design that made use of four all-aluminum cone drivers, each one measuring 10". However, the cabinet enclosure is more durable than the original.
This cabinet sports 400W RMS of power handling, with an impedance of 8 Ohms. With a frequency response of 30 Hz to 5 kHz, you'll be able to push plenty of low-end into a medium-sized club or venue, doing so at levels of up to 98 dB SPL. Yet the tone is smooth, clear, and punchy, thanks to the construction of the drivers. The cabinet accepts signals via two 1/4" inputs wired in parallel.
The cabinet sports a tuned dual-chamber, dual-ported construction, which allows bass to disperse about the room more evenly. Though heavy at 79 lb, two inset handles allow for relatively easy transport.
A Classic Design Preserved
The 410XL V2 features Hartke's classic all-aluminum speaker design. Each XL low-frequency driver features an aluminum cone with a large 1.5" voice coil on a Kapton former as well as impregnated-fabric surrounds and a convex dust cover. They've been mounted in a heavy-duty steel frame. Just like in 1984, a smooth response with a clear, punchy attack form the foundation of a remarkable tone that's suitable for most styles of playing.
The 410XL V2 offers a new look for a new generation of bass players. Its dual-chamber, ported cabinet is no longer dressed in black carpet, but now features a textured vinyl covering that is much more durable. A black perforated steel grille adds to an already strong, sleek look.
