Designed to be the ultimate in versatility, the Carvin KB1015 is unmatched. It packs all of the power & features that come with a custom system, together in an extremely efficient, bi-amplified computer-tuned enclosure. The cast frame, super-duty 15" woofer, dual heavy-duty 8" mids, and adjustable compression horn, make your keys come alive with up to 1000 watts of power. With 7 stereo (14 mono) inputs, there's room for all of your keyboards, modules, drum machines, etc. DI Muting on channels 6 & 7 allow you to run a click track, chase music, or use the KB1015 as your personal vocal monitor without any bleed-through to the main house PA.
Separate controls for the internal amplifiers and DI provides for perfect stage levels (for you) and house levels (for your engineer) a breeze. The KB1015 is very versatile - built-in cross-over for bi-amping, separate Amp1 and Amp2 controls, separate Mono switches for DI & Main outs, DI ground lift, headphone jack and a master 4-Band EQ, let you set-up for any pro situation quickly and easily. A back panel offers balanced 1/4" line-outs and 1/4", SpeakonT and binding posts for simple, logical speaker connections. The KB1015 is a breakthrough for keyboard players who have been under-powered for far too long!
