I am in the process of working on a 6 channel leach amp. It will use my new pcbs that I designed, but have not had made yet ( http://brian.darg.net/leachamppcb/aar ), and be enclosed of a chassis made out of two of heatsinks (
http://brian.darg.net/aleph/aab ) as the sides of the case (8" x 9" x 2.6") and the final dimensions will be 17" wide, so it can fit in a rack, 8" deep and 9" tall.

I might have to use 3 heatsinks for the case, with one in the front. It depends on how cool they run with 3 channels on them. My current leach amp runs very cool with its heatsinks that are quite a bit smaller:
They barely get warm to the tough, and weigh less then half the weight of one of the big heatsinks.
