Default Car Amplifier Heatsink Source?

I'm having a bit of trouble sourcing NEW car amp heatsink extrusions that aren't $50 per foot unfinished. I know some of you have experience in sourcing these. Please advise, thank you!

Default Yes.

I was looking for a stock heatsink, rather than having a new die made. I figured that a stock shape shouldn't be too hard to find, but so far I'm getting brickwalled. I emailed "MOER" about this about three months ago, with no response. I KNOW he has contacts being the Zed Audio dude...maybe he's on vacation.

Bringing this thread back, I'm looking for the same. Want a heatsink that looks something like this (excuse the poor Paint drawing). A radius of around 3". A quarter circle.

if you dont have any luck, i can get sinks hear in thailand the ones that are already extruded only have the top part though, kinda like the old monolithic amplifiers.

if you want to order from a factory, there is a 500kilo minimum order, but could probably get it for 250kilos...

die fee is around $500-800 US

Default In case anyone else is looking...

I found these guys, too.

I don't need 1000pcs of these things. I need 50 or so. Maybe 100.

Default Heatsinks

I design car amps on Saturdays for a small manufacturer in Los Angeles. I have been unable to find a stock source for car amp heatsinks. Even the companies in Asia who have a public tool available generally require a several hundred kg order.

They are all custom jobs.

There are small surviving car audio manufacturers in the US? Any hints? Initials, maybe?

I was trying to break further into the kit-audio scene with a car amplifier power supply kit for the various home audio amplifier designs around the 'net. The main sticking factor is the freakin' chassis. You'd think this would be a simple undertaking. Instead, I have gobbled up scores of hours searching for the typical car amplifier components. Things like tri-barrier terminal strips - in gold. Maybe some polycarbonate housed set-screw style terminals? Transistor hold down clamps? Not Available to a 50-100 quantity buyer! Bollocks, sez I!

If you have any further words of wisdom, I'd be happy to listen. Ecstatic, even.
