TC Sounds will end up using external amps(for TheBEAST),making a limited production multi kilowatt plate amp is not economical.At all,JL is alone doing this now.And they have a full R&D and design team for every part.
JL Audio is one of the very few to have a fully custom mega plate amp in the Fathom and a monster plate in the Gotham.Almost all others(SVS,Klipsch,HSU...name name and name them)use off shelf or close plate amps from a major plate amp giant in Ontario(assembled in China).
And having external amps will be better,amps less stressed by vibrations.
