Kemper has released the Kemper Power Kabinet. The powered version of the Kemper Kabinet features the new Kemper Kone speaker, a built-in 200 Watts power amp, and a smart, built-in speaker stand for a slanted setup.
The Kemper Kone speaker is controlled and driven by the Kemper Profiler's DSP to provide a unique and versatile guitar monitoring system. Independent from the simultaneous full range feed to FOH and recording devices it features 19 included speaker imprints offering the finest choice of well-known guitar speakers from Celestion, and many renowned other classic brands, even rare and particular speakers. This setup guarantees for the best in class "amp in the room sound".
Alternatively on offer is an ultra-linear full-range mode. In contrast to the conventional idea of a full-range system, the Kemper Kabinet sound carries a distinct guitar speaker character, unlike regular PA speakers or monitor speakers. To season the speaker behavior to the player's taste Kemper offers the unique "Sweetening" and "Directivity" Parameters for detailed personal and location-dependent adjustment.
The Kemper Power Kabinet is designed to be the perfect monitoring system for all owners of unpowered Kemper Profilers (Head, Rack, and Stage). Various bundles will become available. Stereo setups supported.
Price: Euro 689 / USD 789 / GBP 500 from the Kemper Online Store. The package contains the Power Kabinet, power cord, a protecting dust cover, and features a smart, built-in speaker stand for slanted setup.

By simply activating the Profiler's well-known Monitor Cab-Off function the Kemper Kone loudspeaker 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 are intended to bring back the good old "amp-in-the-room" sound.
Since the intelligence of the speaker lies in the DSP of the Profiler, it is supported to switch individual speaker imprints along with favorite rigs, without the need for extensive editing. Whenever a full-range sound is desired, 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.
