Default F5 Monoblocks

I want to build F5 monoblocks but I have a few questions:
1) Would the ACA chassis from the DIY store work? If not, can you suggest another chassis?
2) Could I get by with 2 x 200VA transformers, such as the Antec 2218?

The heat sink on the ACA chassis is too small for an F5 which dissipates around 3 times the heat per channel compared to the ACA. A 200VA transformer per side should be OK though.

You need an amp chassis the size of the 4U version in the Store. It will be enough for two channels.
I build, therefore I am.
