Need info on fuse specs

I’m repairing a Pioneer SX-680. It needs all four fuses (AEK-100, AEK-104, and two AEK-108). These are hard to find. I was wondering if someone knew the specs on these so I can substitute. I have the amp rating for each, and I assume a 125V slow-blo would be best, but I don’t know anything about the physical size of the fuse itself - length, diameter. It did not have any to compare with, either, so that’s not an option.

Also, if you know of a cheap place to purchase them, that’d be appreciated also.

Thanks in advance for any info you can share.

I believe those fuses are standard length, which is 1 1/4 inch. Buss uses the AGC designation, Littlefuse uses 3AG for that length. You should use fast blow fuses, NOT slo blow. Also, NEVER use Chinese fuses.
AEK-108 (Pioneer's part number) is 5 amp; AEK-100 is 4 amp and AEK-104 is 1.5 amp.
