Revolutionary 7-Speaker Design
The KC-1000's five-channel amplification system delivers 310 watts of power to fill virtually any space—from living rooms to small live venues—with rich, reverberant stereo sound. The secret is a radical new cabinet design using a total of seven speakers: two 1-inch tweeters, two 6.3-inch midrange speakers, two 6.3-inch side speakers and a 15-inch woofer. So now a single keyboard amplifier can cover the entire spectrum of sound from rich strings to deep pedal bass.

RSS and COSM Technology Inside
Created with organ players in mind, the KC-1000 features a dedicated Organ input for easy connection of Roland and Rodgers organs. This special input channel uses proprietary RSS and COSM technology to reproduce natural tone cabinet reverberation—essential to creating realistic organ sounds. In addition, the KC-1000 is the only keyboard amplifier designed to complement the Virtual Tone Wheel sound found in the VK-7 and VK-77 Combo Organs. Regardless of what type of organ you play, the KC-1000 will make it sound even better.

4-Channel Mixing with Ambient Effect
The KC-1000 features four input channels with built-in mixing capabilities, so you can connect anything from a VK-7 Combo Organ to an XV-88 128-Voice Expandable Synthesizer—even a microphone. And all of these input channels are processed with an exclusive Ambient effect using RSS technology, a split-frequency compressor/limiter, and a three-band equalizer to bring your instruments to life.

Roadworthy Construction
Every aspect of the KC-1000—from its heavy-duty cabinet to the casters and individual knobs—was engineered to provide years of reliable operation. Whether you use the KC-1000 at home or on stage, this rugged keyboard amplifier can keep up with whatever demands you place on it.
