Ive already found that link Jacco but unsure of the values I should be using, maybe someones got a template I can use!!!

I have another question....
Finding a 600va 18-0-18v for my mono is impossible in this country and shipping one from Austrailia is not a option I want to use yet...Instead I found this pic from Kristijan k which I would use two 300VA 18-0-18v, parallel up the primary and then either just parallel the secondaries before going into the two bridge rectifier.....

Or as the pic shows having the secondaries each going into a bride rectifier (four Bridges per mono) first then parallel them up..

So my Question... Whats your thought on this????????????

imho there is no point using extra bridges , i thing the traffos will work better in paralell directly (i hope u are using identical trafo's)

when paralelling the secondaries make sure the're in the same phase or else
if you are not living on the edge you are taking too much space

It would probably work beter and be more reliable when the secondaries of each transformer are paralelled and used to drive a single diode bridge. I mean using each transformer to power one of the supply rails.
