Default Transistor replacement for mj15003/4

which are the nearest equivalents for mj15003/4, ?

The amp runs only +/-34v and runs on a 2ohm load, therefore I`m not going for the mj15024/5 which have higher Vceo.

I`m thinking of MJ11015/6....

Do you think those would work as a replacement ?
I downloaded the datasheet and noticed that these are darlingtons, have higher Ic rating and a bit lower Vceo rating than the Mj15003/4. All the parameters seem to be very close, the only difference is Hfe.

Mj15003/4 25 ~ 150
MJ11015/6 200~1000

does this make any difference on the amp

yes, replacing an output with a darlington makes a difference.
The darlington should replace both the driver and the output.
But I would expect the performance with the darlington to be poorer compared to the discrete driver & output.
For low voltage use MJ(L)15003/4 are a very good choice for a slowish, hi current & reasonable gain transistor. Pretty adequate SOAR as well.
Another low cost, low voltage, slow Tr is the 3055 but current gain at high outputs falls badly.

It seems to be impossible from here to obtain these mj15003/4s,

I found TIP35C/TIP36C are lower power versions of the mj15003/4, do you think these will get me going on ?

for rails of less than +/-45 volts, you sure can use them. but they are slower than mj15003 afaik.

no I think they are faster tip35/6c Ft 3Mhz
Mj15003/4 Ft 2Mhz

You will need two pair of the plastic outputs to replace the one pair of TO-3 metal outputs.

Leander, how many do you need? I have a good few in my parts box at home.
