The Roland KC-550 is the big daddy of the KC series line of keyboard amplifiers. Boasting 180 watts of power, outputted via a 15 inch speaker and dedicated horn tweeter, this is great for on stage applications and has been built for big gigs. The feature set has been well considered, with special features such as Output Select and Shape providing a truly usable and versatile keyboard monitor or amplifier.
Flagship model with 180 watts of power
The 180-watts of power mean that the KC-550 is more than ready for gigs where you need serious volume. The 15 inch speaker mean you get great re-creation of bass frequencies without enormous size, a great compromise. There's also a horn tweeter for pushing higher frequencies, making this a great amplifier for almost any sound source, not just keyboard.
Integrated 4-channel mixer
Four channels, each with stereo capability, are up for grabs using the KC-550. Channel 1 offers an XLR microphone input, as well as mono 1/4" jack inputs so that you can use whichever is necessary for your application. Channels 2, 3 and 4 all accept a pair of mono 1/4" jacks as well, so there's room for plenty of stereo connecivity. You also get a dedicated aux input on a pair of RCA connectors.
Powerful output options
A really powerful feature of the Roland KC-550 is the Output Select option which can be used on channel 4. Three different output options are available for this stereo channel: Headphones only, headphones and speaker, or headphones, speaker and line out. By isolating this input you could use it for many set ups, for example a click track or monitoring feed that just goes to your headphones, of the headphones and speaker. This feature alone opens up plenty of possibilites!
If you need to further re-enforce the sound of the KC-550 or send the sound to a PA system then this amp has those options, and then some! You get a standard line out, a dedicated subwoofer output and a great stereo link feature. The line out is provided on 1/4" jacks as well as XLR outputs with ground lift, for true professional grade output. The stereo link feature lets you connect to another Roland KC-550 for stereo sound, but only using one amp as the controller, saving you valuable set up time.
Made to last
Pre-fitted with castors and with a heavy-duty carpet covering, the Roland KC-550 has been made to endure a tough life gigging regularly. Thanks to these well-thought designs you can be sure your amp will last for years to come.
