Re: [KL] Speakers For Use with A K2500SX
- I have the precursor to the KC550, the KC500. It is a fantastic amp,
with far more power than you would need for most small-to-medium gigs.
And even at high volumes the sound is clear. Now, they may have changed
things between the 500 and the 550, so remember this is my experience
with the 500.
I use it with the PC88mx or with the PC2r playing midi sequences, along
with playing my WX5/VL70m windcontroller/module at the same time. I
also use a mic for speaking between the songs. It can handle all of
that with great ease.
The only downside to the 500 is that it is H E A V Y. It is on wheels,
but my home studio is in the basement so when I move it for a gig I have
to lug it up the stairs and that is not easy. I haven't put handles on
the ends so that somebody else can help me, but as I get older I may
well do that.
The KC stands for Keyboard/Combo, so it has the cirtuitry to handle
keyboards, basses, guitars and the combination of the 15" woofer and the
horn tweeter give it crisp, clear reproduction of any instrument I
emulate with my wind controller.
Hope this gives you some ideas about at least the previous generation of
that model. I've heard great things about the KC300 as well, from
people doing the same sort of gigging I do.

When I have mujsician friends over to the house, two of us will play the K2500SX and my DC7 (7'-6") Disklavier grand piano together.
