NEC 2SD180 Trannys

i've got an old amp that has managed to blow the 2 transisters on the right channel. just wondering if anybody knows somewhere in aus where i can find replacements

they are

NEC 2SD180

That's an NPN 80V, 5A, 50W, TO-3 transistor, with the PNP complement 2SA626. There are many better transistor pairs available now - for instance, ON Semi MJ21194/21193 or MJ31184/31193, with much higher voltage, current and power dissipation ratings.

When replacing the transistors, check the pinout and replace both transistors (NPN and PNP) in the pair.

thanks linuxguru the amp is class a and only has 4 of the nec transisters. not complamentry pairs.... do have a suggestion on a transister to replace them all with ?

Being a class A amplifier is enough reason to use 'overkill' trannies like the MJ21194. But if you had a cheap source for 2N3773's (or else anything with a purely thermally limited SOA at 80 volts) they'd work, too.

Since it's class-A, base-emitter charge storage effects (capacitance) don't play a significant role - so you can go with a bulletproof, monster-die tranny, even with its larger capacitance. I'd second the recommendation to go for an over-engineered, relatively-recent TO-3 like the MJ21194 or 31194 - just ensure that the beta exceeds that of the original, over the operating range.

Bra wrencher,

you're the ace, i missed the Gas Research part.
Oz seems to be the place for high power LPG, a lot cheaper than overhere too.

(the 5PPM biggy looks impressive as well, think you bought the last of the 404's)

cheers for all the advice i'll track down some MJ21194 and give them a go.

And here the government actually gives you a $2000 freebie grant to help towards the conversion cost, as part of an environmental initiative to encourage people to switch to a less polluting fuel.
This, in part, makes it easier for all us petrol heads to get our 30-litre-per-hundred-kilometers-fuel-guzzling 6 litre-plus hotted up V8ís converted for use as economical daily drivers on a cheap fuel.

Thatís pretty funny, I reckon.
