Behringer Ultratone KXD12 600W 4-channel Mixing Keyboard Amp
Gearank High Notes
The Ultratone KXD12 appeared on our recommended list for Keyboard Amps Under $500 from September 2017 through to November 2018.
This amp comes with a basic 4 channel mixer. It has an XLR input that works well with microphones that only require phantom power up to 15V and many musicians report using it successfully as a small PA system to sing and play through at the same time.
This includes both keyboardists and singer/acoustic guitarists and it comes with Behringer's FBQ feedback detecting system to help with that application.
The KXD12 is also used by electronic drummers and even bass players because the 12" woofer handles low frequency transients quite well while still retaining the sparkle at the high-end due to being bi-amped and having a 1" tweeter.
Its Stereo Link feature allows you to connect two of these amps together to produce a wide stereo image on stage.
One drawback is that the 7-band EQ is applied to all channels rather than giving you the option to select which channels to apply it to, but this is common with keyboard amps.
We've seen reports from a few people who have complained that the power rating is not RMS saying that it sounds about as loud as a Roland amp rated at under 200 watts.
