Kemper | KONE | 200W FRFR 1x12" Speaker | Designed by Celestion
The KEMPER Kone is a 12“ full range speaker which is exclusively designed by Celestion for KEMPER. It 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.
Among the imprints, you will find the finest choice of well-known guitar speakers from Celestion and many more, as well as some rare and very particular speakers. More speaker imprints may be added via future software updates.
19 (and growing) speaker Imprints
Since the Profiler's inception, guitar players have clamored to capture the "amp in a room" sound of their traditional stacks and combos. And though Kemper's Pure Cabinet feature has done an exemplary job of bridging the gap between close-miked speakers and hot omnidirectional cabs, Cristoph and co. knew that the elephant in the room that needed to be addressed was the monitoring system itself. Introducing the Kemper Kabinet.
Using your Profiler toaster, rack, or Stage, this 1 x 12" full-range speaker cab can be imprinted digitally with the sounds and characteristics of 19 sought-after speaker types. Just imagine: the chunk and pucker of a vintage J. The cut and clarity of a modern 30. The punch of a Greenmagnet, the chime of an Alnico — all at your fingertips. We're talking frequency response, transient attack, and propagation patterns of traditional voice coils, dust caps, and cones, moving real air up to your ears.
12" Kemper Kone coaxial driver
In order to faithfully re-create these coveted tones, Kemper worked with Celestion to develop an ultra-linear and full-range (50Hz–10kHz) driver. The Kemper Kone's flat response and coaxial design are able to reproduce the chunky lows, creamy mids, and ear-tickling highs of 19 types of classic speakers, as well as the crystalline highs of an acoustic guitar or an otherwordly progressive metal clean.
