    Just watched a video on FB with Tommy Shaw at home, you will see in the background he has a Kemper.

    Hey I’m pretty late to comment, but I have a question I couldn’t see anything about a powered Kemper kab. Do we have an ETA or even any evidence this is in the works? I was all excited to get one and slowly realized I have a passive Kemper, lol

    No eta but it’s in the works

    Does it make a difference in sound (it expect it does) with open back/closed back cab. So if for example I want a traditional Fender sound, then an open back would be best. For traditional Marshall, closed cab? I know with open back you get some sound from the back as well but does it get closer to a Fender sound (as example)?


    On another note, I am going to buy a cheap Marshall MX112 cab to put a Kone into. Might seek out a cheap open back too.

    Additional info to add here...


    From ckemper :

    The Kabinet is not really made for bass, as it is a pure and classic guitar cabinet design.


    However, the Kone is bass compatible. Size does not matter, as you can see by 10' speakers being used especially for bass cabinets.

    We are hoping for cabinet makers creating such designs for the Kone. A 2x12 horizontal or vertical (400 Watts) would work great, favorably with a metal grill instead of cloth.


    A classic 4x12 cabinet equipped with Kones would also work great for bass.


    If you need a continuously adjustable bass control, then use the Monitor Equalizer. It's made exactly for that and of course still works for the Kone.


    CK”

    Interesting, I might then find a bass cabinet that I can mount the Kone into. Like you say, cabinet design does make a difference , especially for air movement. With a bass cabinet, I should still be able to work with a single 12” Kone.


    Any word ckemper if there is anything in the works for other speaker Kone sizes (10”,15”)? Especially with 4x10 , 2x10, 1x15 bass cabs are more common

    wouldnt different cab woods help if people wanted to focus on a type of sound though? If someone prefers a clean fenderish sound compared to high gain, open/closed back etc? :/

    That’s why you can purchase the Kone separately and place it into any cab style/make you want

    Just in case you missed this from the Kemper Kab/Kone thread


    “ Guavadude said:

    I tried it with bass and I don’t recommend it for that. It could be used in a small setting but the cab vibrates too much for it to be used at higher volume. I think a 1-15” version would be a big hit but the cab design would need to be able to handle the extended frequencies and volume.


    I need to try it more off the floor. I’m really impressed with how great the bass boost sounds on the floor. I think this would be my preferred way to use it but I wish I could control the level of boost. Even if it was in five 20% increments or similar settings.”

    Thanks for that.

    Ingolf have you (or anyone else in Kemper land) had the chance to try a bass guitar (if you have one) with the Kab? I know there are a few of us waiting to hear any feedback about how it sounds (although I am expecting it to be awesome).

    Yes you need an adapter/ cable. I use the Kemper DI or mic’s direct in with adapter cable.


    From Kemper video page “ATTENTION!!! Information Update! YES, THE PROFILER STAGE DOES PROFILING: SEND 1 connects to the Amp Input. RETURN 1 (TRS) brings the MIC Signal back into the PROFILER!

    I had asked this question previously and ckemper had said it would work fine. Consider that I currently prefer a 12” speaker with my current bass setup ( Markbass CMD12p) and I am not worried at all. The question might be how much power you might need for a loud band our outdoors. But for me I only need to monitor on stage at reasonable volume and currently my MarkBass amp is way more than enough and rarely go past 3 on the dial ( I play in a classic rock band but we keep stage volume down).


    Looking forward to trying one out, hope to hear some user feedback as well.

    will definitely be getting one, just going to wait a bit as Covid-19 , and all the uncertainty has taken priority. Looking forward to hearing feedback (no pun intended) form users

    I was using my Rack live but have recently started using my Stage. I have my Rack in an SKB case and originally used a stand the was made for DJ controller. More recently I just put the unit on the floor standing on end, so the volume knob was at the high side if I needed to adjust it. I never really adjust anything after sound check, so once the output EQ is set I am good and it can sit there.
