Are you going to run a 4 ohm load?

That one is fine for a 4ohm load even on the safe side.
For an 8 ohm load you can go with higher voltage one like 25v+25V ac

I would then go for the 250VA 25 + 25V transformer to get +-35V DC
If you horn is VERY efficient then the +-35V dc might be overkill but it can't do any damage except if your heat sink is too small.


But if you ever want to use this amplifier on 4ohm loads you need to use the 18 + 18V ac transformer.

When you mix and match, don't forget about using two transformers to
add voltages. Two 18 + 18 can form a 36 + 36 system. Series arrangement.
You can also parallel transformers, but check to see if the voltages are in
fact identical.
