    shouldnt the FRFR be more 'extended' and brighter? :/

    An FR speaker SHOULD only put out what you put into it, but I don't believe there is a PERFECTLY FLAT speaker anywhere. I've never seen a frequency response chart for a speaker that was a flat line.


    Changing speakers of any type might result in different EQ needed. My QSC K10 (FR type) has a notorious low-mid boost which needs to be removed with a PEQ to make it sound "flatter"....and the K10 IS a FR speaker.


    It's not the Kone's fault. If you had started with the Kone, you would have EQ'd your patches a certain way....then playing them on the Yamaha setup would have sounded overly bright to you.

    Remember that some players have, all along, been using an onstage guitar cabinet and simultaneously running to the FOH with the same EQ settings (unless they use the Monitor EQ section).


    I would simply re-EQ' the patches.

    I still have to figure out how to hook my Roland GR55 into the Kemper to see how it works for that, oh well I’ll get it (on to reread the manual)

    When I was playing live with the GR-55, I put the mono output of the GR-55 into the loop return of the Kemper.
    Put a mono loop in the "X" slot and switch it in and out when needed. This way of connecting it only allows for EITHER the Kemper or GR to be active, but I never mixed both at the same time.

    Yesterday ordered the cabinet (will take a week to ship) and seperately a Seymour Duncan Powerstage 170. Got the Powerstage today and was very disappointed by the continuous noise of the fan. Now saw in reviews that others have similar experiences.


    Will return it, but what power amp to order now???

    If you don't need so much power...I'm using a DV Mark CMT as a power head. 60 watts into 4 ohms.
    It sounds good and the bonus is that it sounds good by itself into a normal guitar speaker.
    I originally bought it as a multi-use device. When used by itself, it uses a small tube for the preamp.


    1) Using a Mini Brute circuit preamp pedal as the front end for jazz guitar sounds
    2) By itself as a small, good sounding amp.
    3) With the Kemper Kone.

    Let's not kid ourselves, MDF is strictly used for its cost. The best cab builders don't use birch or pine to "accentuate the right frequencies"

    That is possible.
    It's also possible some people won't buy a cabinet unless it's made of traditional woods and some cab builders realize that. $$$.

    So far, it seems everybody is pleased with the sound of their MDF Kabinet.

    Very cool and I'd love to buy some stuff, but I can't get to your website. I tried IE, Edge, Chrome, and FireFox from a Windows PC, and Safari from an iPhone and iPad. They all seem to take issue with a secure channel issue. The most useful error came via FireFox; 'Error code: SSL_ERROR_RX_RECORD_TOO_LONG". I found your Facebook page and it looks like someone reported the same there (though I don't use Facebook or i would have posted there). Are you actively working on something?

    I was able to get in a minute ago with Firefox and Chromium on Linux, plus using Safari on my iPhone.

    Really? The room where my Kabinet sits and my relative position to it doesn’t allow for much more than 12:00 o'clock.

    I sit about 4-5 feet in front of it, off angle. The more I reduce the level of the Directivity, it sounds more like the faux, stereo widening effect on some boom boxes with that circuit. When I leave it at maximum, it sounds more amp like to me.

    Its here!Now, people have been talking about “amp in the room” sensation... Im not a tone savy person, but when I switched from my Fender Twin Reverb combo amp to the Kemper with the Xitone cab, although I liked what I was hearing, something felt different. I eventually got used to it and never went back and played the Twin Reverb.

    I discovered I did not like the Directivity control at anything other than 10 (full up). Anything less sounds diffused and strange.

    There are no actual shortages of food or anything else, but people keep creating an artificial shortage in the stores by hoarding stuff they don't need. My mother lived through the Depression and WWII and nothing phases her now. She's 97 and not worried and neither am I. If the world would just use precaution and think the same way, it would get better quickly.


    I can't speak for your line of work; when business shuts down for a while, some people will be affected. Look at your savings and if you think your job will be affected, then make a decision to keep or return.

    I had about 35 minutes as I have other things to do. In the open back T21 cabinet, it sounds exactly the same as if you used an open back combo. I only tried the MBritt Deluxe Reverb from his Vintage Pack and it sounds very amp like. I prefer this MUCH better than using my QSC K10 FR. I'm thrilled; a total game changer. Fractal should be really worried. LOL.
    I should have more time with this on Monday.


    It's also the first time I've tried the new editor. Very nice, For my workflow, it's not as easy as using the KPA knobs as my KPA is on a stand and not near a desk. My laptop sits on top of the rack and I simply use the editor to choose rigs.

    Received Kone and installed (late tonight so not possible to try out yet; will try tomorrow) in an old model Tech 21 Power Engine 60. Tech 21 informed me the power amp can not handle 4 ohms without overheating, so I'm only using this worthless piece of gear as a cabinet powered by a DV Mark CMT head. I soldered the speaker cable leads directly to the speaker terminals of the Kone.

    Apologies if this has been asked already:


    Can you fit the Kone into a powered speaker cab? I'm currently using 2 RedSound LG12 powered cabs in stereo, and it would be great if I can swap the speakers to Kones.
