KEMPER Kone & KEMPER Kabinet
The KEMPER Kabinet™ is a lightweight, powerful speaker cabinet with an exclusive speaker design developed exclusively for the KEMPER Profiler™. The KEMPER Kabinet with the KEMPER Kone™ offers to guitarists the choice of 19 different speaker characters (aka imprints) with their KEMPER PROFILER PowerRacks or PowerHeads.

The KEMPER Kabinet™ is specially designed for the PROFILER™. The KEMPER Kabinet is a combination of the KEMPER Kone loudspeaker and an exclusive and unique speaker tone mining technology developed by KEMPER™, making it possible to digitally „imprint“ various speaker characteristics onto one single cabinet.

The KEMPER Kone is a 12“ full-range speaker which is exclusively designed in cooperation with Celestion for KEMPER. The Kone is controlled and driven by the KEMPER Profiler’s DSP to an ultra-linear (full range) frequency response, using a dedicated DSP algorithm. In contrast to the conventional idea of a full-range system, the radiation pattern of the KEMPER Kone has been narrowed towards the physics of a classic guitar speaker chassis, so that even the full range sound carries a distinct guitar speaker character, unlike regular PA speakers or monitor speakers. To season the speaker behaviour to the player’s individual taste KEMPER offer the unique „Sweetening“ and „Directivity“ Parameters for detailed adjustment.
The 19 included speaker imprints offer the finest choice of well-known guitar speakers from Celestion, and many renowned other classic brands, and even rare and particular speakers. More speaker imprints may be added via future software updates.

The KEMPER Kabinet can be driven by the power amp of a PROFILER PowerHead™ or PowerRack, as well as by utilising any external solid state power amp. When using external stereo amplifiers, driving two Kabinets in stereo is possible. The unpowered PROFILER models like Rack, Head and Stage require also external power amps for dring the Kabinet.

The KEMPER Kone speaker is also available as a replacement speaker for existing guitar cabinets. The KEMPER Kone is available as a single unit and 2 and 4 speaker sets for 2 x 12“ and even 4 x 12“ guitar cabinets. Requests from 3rd party cabinet makers are welcome!

About SPEAKER IMPRINTS

By simply activating the PROFILER’s well-known Monitor CabOff function the KEMPER Kone is switched from full-range mode to the Speaker Imprint Mode, which then exactly mimics one of 19 classic guitar speakers. The sound of these imprints should not be mistaken with the mic‘ed cabinet simulations of a PROFILE™. They rather bring back the good old "amp-in-the-room" sound.
Since the intelligence of the speaker lies in the DSP of the PROFILER, you will be able to switch individual speaker imprints along with your favorite rigs, without needing to do extensive editing. Whenever you switch to a full-range sound, for an acoustic guitar, for example, the KEMPER Kone will switch to full-range mode automatically.
Music that is fed into the PROFILER through the Aux Input will be played back in full-range mode, even when you play your amp with a Speaker Imprint, both at the same time.
Due to the digital features, the KEMPER Kone and KEMPER Kabinet work exclusively with a PROFILER.
