buzz. you know me
heatsinked man i'll use 2x10.080 profiles 6"long pr side. and drive them to maximum
acording to latest numbers. i will get the heat spread maximum over this field so i guess i'm good only the bias will tell

i will however run it on a BIT higher rail voltage. +/-51V or there about and still maintain about 2.6A bias

Will 4 11" profile at 10" high be enough for one channel?

okei. have run some PSU tests now.
with 2x40V transformer. i end up with +/-50-51V supply.
(yes it is 63V caps). so. with a +/-50V supply and 1000VA pr ch. and 4x68.000uF.
the PSU is behaving very good. all seams fine..
no reason for you to be nerves

Yep they are the Antek ones.
I'm using them at 8" high for my F5 now biasing at 1.6A
They get hot but I can put my hand on it for at least 20s
I think the last time I checked they run at 50C at 25C room temp


When you start adding the amp board to it what voltage drop do you get? 4-5V? or about 45-46V rail?

Are the sinks from heatsink USA more appropriate? You can order them as tall as you like.

This will mean that : 50Vpk /1.414 =35.36V and solve P=V^2 /R(8ohm) I should get 156Watts?!
What about efficiency factor ....?
