Default TIP 35C and TIP 36C

Hope this thread comes out helpful.

I had this delema about 3 months ago,

I get all kinds of amps in that used TIP35C/36C's, I found that that a few manufactors made replacement for these, but I always seemed to have these amps come back within a few weeks with shorted outputs again. I have talked to some of the other tech's about using ST's or Mospec replacements, some agreed, some disagreed.

But I decided to purchase the originals from Korea, but I had to buy alot of them.

Maybe others have found this, I hade 4 amps sitting here that used the exact replacements and I found that i have had NO issues with amps after the fact.

If anybody is interested in a few of these, PM me.

Seen the same issue, especially on Kicker amps. Mismatching semi's just never works well. I guess thats why I stock lots of direct parts at my bench. Just seen way too much mismatch issues out there

Good luck

I found out that exact semi's worked well for me.

The brand I saw in most Amps was marked with a "K".

I found out the the manufacter was KEC electronics, and they don'tdistribute in the USA.

So I had to buy 1000 of them. Got them right form Korea. I fixed 5 amps already with exact replacements, and have had no issues.

I mean, 10 TIPS cost about $15.00.

I 'll get my money back quickly on repairs...but It's gonna take me awhile to use 1000..hence why I offered to sell a few.

There are a lot of counterfeit TIP35/36 out there. I never had a problem when buying them from an authorized distributor...
