Default 4 Transformers?

I am starting to lay out my components for my amp and was wondering if 4 transformers could be used for a dual mono setup?

The only reason for using four, is that I found them at a very good price on ebay, but being only 120VA and with one 24V secondary, they were not really suitable to be used as a pair.
They are small enough though to fit quite easily into a regular width chassis, with room for the amp modules and PSUs.

A bit unconventional, but if there will be no inherent problems then great.

Thank you for the reply.

I would measure them first and try to pair them with there closest voltages , There might be very slight winding Variations which could cause the output voltages not to be 100% same with each transformer so matching might be advisable ....


Cheers

Wise words. I'll do just that.

Thank you very much, once again.
