Thank you for the unconfuse!
I was accustomed to buying EI-core center tap (always secondaries series), but the Antek toroid dual secondaries datasheets (always secondaries paralleled) baffled me since their test conditions never match my application.

A possible chip amp for 16 ohm speakers is bridged TDA7265 monoblocs, and these can run from $9 19vdc laptop power pack. However, the datasheet bridge application's gain setting looks like a misprint. I think I'd use the non-bridge schematic, change the feedback resistors to 27k and then apply simple one resistor bridge. That plan makes only about 11 watts to 16 ohms though. That is a very effective 11 watts if one adds about 1000u series to the + amplifiers output (DC block, speaker protect, current drive) and adds resistors to the - amplifiers output with the value matching or greater than the ESR of the + amps output caps. Sort of an inexpensive current drive setup that way, and minimal loss too. Would be a non-shouty chip amp. Some people enjoy that chip for mids-n-treble amp in bi-amp systems.

Hi, the reality is you are mostly wrong, rgds, sreten.

Work out the VA ratings for an amplifier
that does 50W/8ohm and 80W/40hm.

No it doesn't. Simple capacitor coupling outside the feedback loop is the
same as capacitor coupled speakers* (so called third order speakers),
and the effect is very speaker dependent but can work well.

rgds, sreten.

* Numerous models from Kef, Goodmans, Wharfedale etc.
The capacitor needs to match the speaker properly.
