1.is it necessary to use a Toroidal transformer?
2.can I use regular transformer in a different box ?
box to the hypex modul + power suply, and another box to the transformer?
3. does the hypex case must be close hermetic?
or i need case with hole ?
becose i heard that digital amp must be in closed box,
4. in your opinion 300VA 42-42 to UcD will be good enough
even in adjective music ?

1. no, other types of transformers will work as long as they have the required voltage and power ratings

2. I assume by "regular" you mean an EI-core transformer? You can. There are advantages to going toroidal though, such as less heat and most significantly reduced weight, but there's nothing stopping you from using other kinds if it fits your design.

3. It is recommended to have some ventilation, either in the form of holes or forced air cooling (fans). Although the Class D amplifier modules are very efficient, they do have components that can heat up quite a bit in an enclosed space.

4. Yes, 300VA per module will be fine for any type of music. The only thing it won't be suitable for is pure tones or sine waves at full RMS output power, but the modules are not intended for continuous use under such conditions anyhow.

You can order a suitable transformer for the UcD180 directly from Hypex. I did that and I'm happy with it. I'm not sure why you are looking elsewhere. To save some money? Or did I miss something here?

For UCD400 mono what you need is the TR400 from Hypex. If you want to built a stereo amplifier (two UCD400s) then get the TR501A also from Hypex.
