I ultimatly want to use 15 channels of amplification. but would start with 4 then to 6 then to 12 and possibly upto 15. so thought one or two large supplies would be better but sounds as though it might be easier to make them full monoblocks with PSU for each.
Just do it the same way car audio amps do it: Pushpull with a step-up transformer.

1 - it does.

2 - time to start. Call me non-progressive but I would 'never' do class D BUT given the conditions (12V, space, etc) and your scale, I don't see a real alternative. There are some excellent threads here to get you started!

OK, then you need the outputs voltage controlled.
I recommend not going much higher than 200-300W per transformer.
You can keep the losses at a more reasonable level that way...
Google for TL494 and SG3525 to begin with.
