Donít know where to post this; it is both solid state and speakers.
Anyway the problem is about transistors so here I go:
Got a pair of these speakers from a customer, brought in for repair years ago.
After telling him the price for repair, I never saw him again.
Years have past now and I just decided to try to fix those speakers for myself.
The name says Active, which means they are powered speakers.
Picture 21-23 at
are about the only pics I could find on the net.
The mosfet amplifier has 2sj99 and 2sk343 devices in it.
Possible replacements could be 2SJ82/83, 2SK226/227 but they are also not easily available and their pin out is different.
So, the question is obvious:
Would anyone here on the forum be able to point me in the right direction (replacements) or maybe someone has those fets lying around and is willing to sell them.
I need two of each.

where do you live? I'm from Germany.
Would you like to buy a brandnew bass-amplifier for your active1 (210Ä)?
Or 2 pairs of transistors (K344 and J100) for 70Ä.

From my pair of speakers a few tips.
One of them became unstable, and switched itself on and off intermittently.
Problem was in the regulator on the filter board - both capacitors had dried out, and read zero mfd - they are very close to both high power resistors and hot running transistors.
Try changing them to high temp working ones.
The other thing I noted is that the HF mosfet amp does produce a small dc voltage across its output - not a good idea for feeding a tweeter, and a fault condition could write it off.
I have located some 2sk343 transistors, and if anyone would like to share a part order ( 10 is the minimum I can order) please shout !
I also think that I have found modern day more robust mosfets to change the 2sk343 and 2sj99's.
