This paper presents high resolution spectroscopy of the HX Vel (IDS 08390-4744 AB) multiple system. New spectroscopic observations of the system were made at Mt. John University Observatory in 2007 and 2008. Radial velocities of both components of HX Vel A were measured using gaussian fitting. The spectroscopic mass ratio of the close binary was determined as 0.599 +/- 0.052, according to a Keplerian orbital solution. The resulting orbital elements are a(1)sini=0.0098 +/- 0.0003 AU, a(2)sini=0.0164 +/- 0.0003 AU, M(1)sin(3)i=1.19 +/- 0.07 M-circle dot and M(2)sin(3)i=0.71 +/- 0.04 M-circle dot.
