Nothing to date.
Howdy! I’m somewhat new to the Kemper scene and recently bought two Kemper Kabinets from British Audio. I’ve hooked them up to my Kemper Powerhead and seem to be having some trouble. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.
I am running a speaker cable from the speaker output on the Powerhead to Kabinet #1‘s input. Then I’m running a speaker cable from Kabinet #1’s output to Kabinet #2’s input, completing my mini Kemper stack. I am getting sound through both, but the tone sounds small and thin. As soon as I disconnect a Kabinet from the chain and use just one Kab, the tone is full and glorious. I’m currently playing Tone Junkie’s wicked good Tone Mister and Dirty Surly profiles.
I read in the Kabinet user manual that I can link two Kabinets as I’ve done, and the two Kabs (4 ohms each) are then wired in series yielding 8 ohms. I’m stumped as both Kabs and speaker cables are working independently of each other.
Thank you kindly for any assistance!
I suspect that there is some sort of mis-wiring in the output jack. Have you tried both speakers as the first in line, feeding the other?
I’m just not getting ANY sound but a faint hiss from my Kone
I’ve tried everything!
but my ‘toaster’ is just a headphone amp & nothing more!!
how can I return the Kone to Kemper if I’m hearing a slight hiss..? ?♂️
Do you have a powered Kemper?
Pete is also one heck of a player!
Check the noise gate on the front panel.
I would like to see some combinations like a Celestion Blue with a G12H30, etc.
Thanks Mats! Even after having gone to the same NAMM show you have, I read your report. It seems that I don't have the same level of concentration or curiosity you do.......that, and I prefer to play golf in the morning and just swing by the show in the afternoon.
on my variax, I dont feel ANY diff in any tuning,, so I know it can be done,just want to downsize,,
On the Variax each string is processed individually. I read somewhere years ago that each string has the processing power of the original pod to perform the functions that it needs to change the sounds.
What is the "grayed out" parameter: Sweetening?
I don’t think that’s necessarily correct. If I understand what CK is saying the imprints will sound like the original speaker in that cabinet. For example, a V30 in a Mesa Thiele will sound Duffy to a V30 in a Marshall or Fender cab. Therefore, a V30 imprint will sound like a V30 in the same cabinet. Rather than the Konrad needing a specific style of cabinet to sound like a V30.
That seems to be the idea but how it works in practice remains to be seen. Given Kemper’s track record though I have high hopes for this ?
I agree with you. However few Oxford, Celestion Blue, or other iconic speakers are used in a ported cabinet. So, as I mentioned, they would not necessarily sound bad. Rather, different than intended. Since the speaker makes more difference in the overall sound than the amp driving it, changing the response will affect the way the profile is presented.
In other words, don't expect that a great profile of an old Fender tweed amp will sound as authentic with the Kone in a ported cabinet, as opposed to a sealed Kabinet.
As I understand your explanations, it's no Problem to Change from the EVM12L in my Thiele-1x12"-cabinet to the Kemper-Kone. It will be very interesting for me to compare the result to a Kemper-Kabinett.
I think that due to the port in the cabinet, the speaker response will be different than what the Imprint was designed for. As a result, the sound will differ from the ideal that Kemper designed to. This does not mean that it would sound bad, per se, but less like the chosen speaker.
I have stated before, and remain convinced that the ability to morph between 2-rigs will become a reality with the current hardware.
I'm supremely disappointed in the lack of support for my Psion 5.
shouldn't it be possible to use to Profiler to do the same like this device "Tone dexter"?
So putting an acoustic guitar pickup signal into the Kemper input, engaging the Profiler Mode, and having a good microphone taking the "acoustic" sound of the guitar into the alternative input.
Listening to the differences between pickup sound and microphone sound should lead to a "profile" that makes a "like microphoned" sound out of the pickup sound.
What do you think? For me it would be a game changer, using the kemper for this !
Let's find out if this would be of interest for others as well.
I actually think it could be done....whether it would infringe on the Tone Dexter patents is another matter.
The tone Dexter uses a microphone input from an external mic as it's reference, not noise as the Kemper does, so I don't think it would be *that* difficult for the Kemper to do.
Yes indeed! +1

Talking about dual amping or parallel effects routing. We have a unique feature set that is relating to the serial signal flow as it is. That is „condition-free spillover“ of the DLY and REV module, individual output sources such as Stack, Mod, Dly&Rev wet - and especially MonitorCabOff, to switch off the cabinet solely for the Monitor Output and run a real guitar speaker through the power amp. Those features can be set globally, without tweaking every individual rig.
We know that a very large part of our customers utilize and enjoy these features. With dual amping or parallel effects routing those features are not possible, because there would be no determined points in the signal flow any more.
What do you think?
I think I would like to see morphing between 2 different amps ?
That would provide a fine solution for 80% of us.
I predict that Kemper's next generation of electronics, either replacements for their current crop of equipment, or a new floorboard, will be made in China. Manufacturing in Germany is just too expensive.
