Kemper has announced the availability of the Kemper Kabinet and Kemper Kone replacement speaker.
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 behavior 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 utilizing any external 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. Request from 3rd party cabinet manufacturers are welcome.
The Kemper Kabinet is available for 400 EUR / $480 USD. The Kemper Kone replacement speaker is 150 EUR / $180 USD (also available as 2, and 4 packs).
