I plan the following orders to get a DIY Kabinet inexpensive solution for home practice ( and low volume jams, no big live )

Harley Benton Custom Line Thunder 99 : pedal form stereo power amp
Whole powered solution cost is around 350€ with an option for real stereo.
This little Power amp is rated @ 4 ohms , and runs in stereo with 2 inputs / outputs , so it looks like a perfect solution .
Does anyone see any problem that I should not have thought about with my plan ?
In the past, these pedal power amps have repeatedly proven themselves to be severely under-powered.
I have no experience with this pedal however, just pointing out what users posted here over the years.

look for "Polytone" in the Rig Exchange
It seems most rigs in rig manager are always very bright. Can anyone recommend warmer, darker, jazz-like rigs?
Maybe something more muscular in the upper chord structure without being excessively Bassy? if that’s possible? I guess it’s upper mid range I seek.
I know I can tweak various EQ parameters on brighter rigs, but I’d like to start with a good basic foundation.

as a part time bass playing guitarist, this helps a lot to get a great core tone and even, controlled dynamics I simply don't have the time to develop
no off-topic posts, please.
read the post (quote) above.
there were numerous off-topic posts added to this thread in the last couple of days,
please keep it 'clean' - name of rig and author maybe a decription of the rig or why you like it so much only - no chatter, please.
use the 'like'-button to show appreciation, no "thank you" posts, please.
and guitarists can't even agree on where the pedal should be placed - left or right.
PROFILER S/PDIF Out into Eleven Rack S/PDIF In
make sure to use proper S/PDIF cables, not just any RCA cable, they look the same, but they are not.
S/PDIF settings for the PROFILER and Eleven Rack must match
Your audio interface must be set as a clock slave to S/PDIF, since the PROFILER itself is not able to act as slave of an incoming S/PDIF clock. • The PROFILER can generate a clock of 44.1, 48, 88.2, or 96 kHz. Your audio interface and DAW will be clocked at the selected rate and your DAW project should also be set accordingly. PROFILER Head, PowerHead, Rack, and Power Rack need to be master of the clock. PROFILER Stage can also be used as slave.
if the CABINET button is lit, then the cabinet is active.
Pure Cab is on by default
I have a general question...should purecab be on for using an FRFR, or something like the kabinet when it comes out? Being new to KPA I am trying to understand what it really does.
Pure Cab is a easy way to reduce artifacts that commonly occur when close micing an amp.
IMO on a great sounding (to my ears) cabinet it does nothing (it is an adaptive algorithm), but if there are 'issues' with it, like comb filtering artifacts from phase misalignment - it takes care of those.
Mine is on globally on 3.3
I switch it off regularly, or override it with the CABINET setting, but re-activate it pretty much all the time.
In a FRFR enviroment, you should be able to hear the effect Pure Cab makes, so try it, give it a minute to et your ears adjust, switch it off again - see how you like it.
Grab tone from external audio like CD or mp3 where guitar is isolated.
like I said,
set up your profiling chain - get a basic tone, send it to your DAW, insert a match EQ plugin and let it match whatever target tone you selected - the match EQ will now construct a EQ curve.
Profile this setup and you have your tone matched tone, it's been done since the 90's (Steinberg Free Filter) and IME it's just not worth the hassle, because these tones were designed to work in a VERY specific context and are often very dependent on the bass and drums sounds that were used on that recording and will most likely sound underwhelming in isolation.
But like I said, the tools are all there, good luck
(and I'd stay away from mp3s for this exercise)
you can put an (vst) EQ with tone matching capability in the profiling chain and Profile that.
amp - cab - mic - match eq
or use the direct amp signal.
itˋs been done often and the results were IMHO to 99% underwhelming.
Is there a specific IR format needed for the Kemper?
Is there a way to get the IR into the Kemper without going through Rig Manager (I've updated the Kemper, but I can't install the new Rig Manager since I'm on Windows 7)?
use CabMaker then
I did with the Nolly plugin. It was near but not exactly spot on. Kemper's bass were generally cleaner or less compressed. Good results to my ears though.
"You can PROFILE solid-state amps, as well as software modeling amps, although the results from PROFILING modeled amps can sometimes be underwhelming. The reason for this is that some emulations use techniques that don’t necessarily match the analog reality." - from the manual
