I'm wondering how to best employ these two A4 heatsinks, they are monsters at 55mm high.

I'm building a 4-Channel F5 but I'm at a loss as to how to mount the heatsinks.

Not bad for something chucked out at work.

Sensible thing to do is to have them machined to 4U height but that is criminal when huge heatsinks are so expensive and oftem impossible to obtain.

These should be able to ditch some serious heat.

Seems right to me! That is exactly what I have done with two very similar sinks. Otherwise you will either have them hanging around for years - or will build something stupid just to utilise them.

I bought a 300 X 300 mm double sided blank PCB today. Going to have a crack at making my first diy pcb sometime after fixing my wifes cars gearbox issues

HAVE FUN, It's never as easy as it looks. Photo sensitive boards IMO are the easiest to use.

Thanks, It's going to be relatively simple and I will be routing as opposed to etching so I'm hoping it will go ok! It will probably be a few weeks before I get it it though

Samson Servo-550, plus a 4U rack case.

The amp's 3U, so I'll put an active crossover in there too, bridge the amp and that's my sub add-on rack sorted - sub itself is a Tannoy T40, the one with the nice RCF driver in there.
The other rack has a graphic eq, compressor and another of the same amp, not bridged, driving a couple of 12" tops.

Just fired it all up and it sure is a lot of noise

Chris

eBay.

They come up occasionally for <100 delivered. Sounds nice enough for me to sit back and enjoy the music. There's also enough power on tap to really shake the house. Best of both worlds, but they aren't exactly light...
