Did some comparisons between Kabinet in FRFR mode to a powered Neo-CLR that I have. I'm using the BAM200 amp for the kabinet. The CLR sounds best to me on the floor monitor position and the switches set for tilt back. This gives a nice low end and mid details. The top end can be what I think of as too hi-Fi. Especially on the heavier profiles with more gain. Not bad at all and would work fine in 95% of the applications with a live band.
The Kabinet didn't have the hi-Fi sound to it and just feels more natural. Hate to use the term in the room feel but that's how it sounds and reacts to me without a hi-fi top end. It didn't match the low end of the CLR and when I turned on bass boost for the Kabinet it was almost too much low end. So a tweak on the monitor eq on the KPA did the trick there. I seem to like the sweetening setting at around 3 or 4. Can someone explain what the sweetening parameter is doing?
from manual addendum 7.2 “
The full-range mode of the KEMPER Kone is extremely linear — for some of us, it might even be too linear. The
high-quality monitors/PA speakers used with digital guitar amps will often emphasize the low and high frequencies —
this makes the sound more appealing and allows for an increase in volume level without causing ear fatigue. The
"Sweetening" parameter allows continuous control over the level of this emphasis. At full left position, there is no
emphasis at all. At full right, the low and high frequencies will be emphasized by 6 dB, while the overall volume stays
roughly the same”
