Default Help with transformer... What is it???

Anyone know what the Voltage & VA rating would be for this? I got them a long time ago & can't find any info on them I want to parallel the 3886 chips so I don't want the tranny to be too big (causing them to clip) or too small (leaving power on the table). Thanks for the help guys!!!

They say:
R53244VD100T

Size is:
4.5" x 2"

Weight:
~5lbs

hi,
measure the open circuit secondary voltage.

@ 5lbs it is likely to be 160VA to 250VA.

As for your other questions, I'm afraid I can't translate them into English!
