Reviews From Buyers
With 4 channels including one XLR channel, the KB5 does everything needed to support small groups and rehearsals. Two cones and a horn do a good job of mixing and projecting a wide range of frequencies simultaneously: voice, bass, guitar with effects and keyboard. Obviously it is a compromise compared with a full sound board, but the KB5 fulfills the role it was bought for completely. The built in castors and handle are a a great feature, though the amp drags a little on even low pile carpet. Beats carrying it by a wide margin. The only other criticism would be that the labels for inputs and knobs are printed in black over taupe. That makes them impossible to read except in bright light. I have not had the opportunity to use it as a powered monitor, but have every reason to believe it would work well.
