Grant, it would be awesome to find these pro plate amps pre-made AND affordable, yet, I've searched all over and cannot find any pre made, affordable, pro XLR input plate amps, 400 Watt continuous, 800 Watt peak, into 8 Ohms. If you, or anyone, find any, please post a link!
If we, as a community of DIY audio sound system pros, would have enough demand to guarantee we'll take 1000 pro plate amps between all of us, then we can make this pro plate amp happen to our specs, at an affordable cost
. Disclaimer, presumably pro plate amps would be for new built cabs, since if you have existing cabs up and running with amp rack, you probably would keep that setup as-is. Not trying to get anyone to ditch their existing and perfectly working beloved external amp racks. Just want to provide a competitive option for those who want to be lean and mean and not be forced to have an external amp rack when they don't want to have one.
This pro plate amp opportunity could be the perfect new cab design opportunity for BF, to design a new pro style LINE ARRAY CAB - short, wide, stackable with the special external steel hardware, with the tweeters on wavefront horns! Competitive with the big guys and their sexy 10 foot tall line arrays with six or eight cabs stacking in a 10 foot tall line. For all of us to use the pro plate amps on the back of! Performing artists, and venues, love having that long controlled coverage only a line array can provide
, due to the laws of physics!
