Default Using a kc 500 as a kick drum sub

Is this a bad idea? Would also be used for my roland td set so would kind of be like killing two birds with one stone.

Default Re: Using a kc 500 as a kick drum sub

I use Roland PM-1's (I have 3) for drum amps. I also have KC-100's. Both are rated at 60 watts. The PM's are designed for drums. The KC's are keyboard amps. As such, the PM's do a better job at being a drum amp. The KC's, they work, but lack the bottom end that the PM's bring to the table.
In the KC-500, that's also a keyboard amp. The "Big Kahuna" of the Roland drum amp line ... the TDA 700. And it's one bad mutha. Designed for e-drums. The KC-500, it'll work ... but not as good as a TDA 700.
