Since your Stage is still in Warranty, I suggest contacting Support. Perhaps they will send you a new knob.
If it is for home use, you could build a copy of your Matrix cabinet. It would not even need the additional weight of hardware.
Tweak a reference Rig at GIG volume. ( I did one dirty, and one clean)
With each new Rig, compare it to the Reference Rig, at HOME volume. If you EQ and level it to compliment the Reference Rig, it will also sound good at gig volume.
What is the difference between the 2 modes? When I play a sound in Browser, the sound is much more dynamic. I can change the EQ..... Can anyone assist me on the differences?
The Input Settings are Locked by default in Performance Mode, and Unlocked by default in Browse Mode.
You may prefer to have them set the same way in both Modes.

Is the KPA browser set to “All Rigs”?
The addition of High and Low pass filters to the EQs is mentioned in that video, too.
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.
For old Fender tweed sounds, the Kone might sound the most like the original speaker onstage, if it is in an open back cabinet.
Hey all, I have a question. I can’t reply oh any of the private forum threads. Do I need to re-register my new KPA or something?
Yes, you need to register the Serial Number of your new Kemper to post in the Private Forum.
And, Welcome back!
Mr. Kemper may have already answered my question during ToneJunkie's NAMM interview:
"You can choose the route on a daily basis, or on an hourly basis, or even on a rig basis."
The context, was regarding switching between full range and an imprint based on the needs of the rig...but if there's already a provision to switch, it would be silly if you couldn't also change which imprint the rig uses.
From the draft Owner's Manual:
You probably use Direct Profiles in your live set, such as acoustic guitar sounds or bass rigs. Direct Profiles are marked by having the Cabinet Module set to „empty“, thus featuring a full range sound. Running a full range sound through a classic guitar speaker is unpleasant. Therefore, in speaker imprint mode (MonitorCabOff active), when switching to a Direct Profile, Kemper Kone will automatically switch to full range mode for that rig. No preparation needed.
They will be available sometime after the non-powered cabinets are available. In the NAMM 2020 interviews, CK said they are currently working on them.
ckemper In one of the NAMM Videos, you encouraged speaker builders to make cabinets for the Kone. Are you going to publish cabinet specifications, cabinet internal volume recommendations, or Theile Small parameters?
I have the same question, I run one or two 112 cabs so I really need 8 ohm speakers when I run two cabs. Thank you.
The Kabs have Series connections on the back of them. If you daisy chain two of them in mono , it will be an 8 ohm load.
Are you sending too much signal into the EHX Power Amp, and causing the EHX to distort? It is likely designed for a Guitar-level input signal, not a Line Level signal.
The EHX website says " turn it up for some gnarly grind, or really crank it and get bathed in distortion!”
People who sell commercial profiles will probably try putting regular Guitar speakers into a Kone cabinet when they make merged profiles - with the real amp EQed for that specific amp/cab combination, they could end up with some nice sounding profiles.
Yes, sound will come out of the speaker.
