Both the Rack and the Head (black version only) are available with a built-in Class D power amp. It produces 600 Watt @ 8 Ohm or 300 Watt @ 16 Ohm. The power amp was designed in Denmark by the renowned IcePower. It offers pristine sound quality, whether it is driving linear speakers or classic guitar speaker cabinets.
The Class D technique makes for the most energy-efficient power amp solution, emitting only a minimum of heat. This reduces the need for heat-sinks, as well as minimising the overall size and weight. Combining this power amp with the Kemper Profiler turns the PowerHead and the PowerRack into a super smart, compact, all-in solution. The PowerHead weighs in at a little over 6kg.
If required, you can switch off the built-in power amp, converting your powered Profiler into a line-level unit for recording purposes.
The Kemper Profiler is the leading-edge digital guitar amplifier and all-in-one effects processor.
Hailed as a game-changer by guitarists the world over, the Profiler is the first digital guitar amp to really nail the full and dynamic sound of a guitar or bass amp. This is made possible by a radical, patented technology and concept which we call "Profiling".
For decades, the electric guitarist has been shackled to the tube amplifier as the only means of achieving "that sound". The combination is undoubtedly glorious, but far from ideal - achieving consistent results between practice room, studio and stage presents a significant challenge to guitarists, just as it has since the early 1940s.
The Profiler Head comes with classic curves. It makes a perfect silhouette on a 4x12 cabinet. Still, it's so light and compact that it can be taken onto a plane as hand-luggage. The footprint of the Head is tiny - designed to stand on the desk of your project studio, right beside your computer. The Profiler Head is available in black and white colour.
With the advent of the Kemper Profiler, everything has changed. For the first time in history, guitar players are free to create their most individual tones -tones that reflect the very essence of their playing style- and then capture them exactly into the digital domain with Kemper's unique technology.
Profiling is the key!
Feel like you don't have any tube amps worth profiling? No problem!
