Technics SU-C03 Globes

Coconutdog's picture

Hi All. Does anyone know anything about these globes? They are from a Technics SU-C03 amp and have blown. The voltage feeding them is 6.5VDC. I'm after a part number and what type they might be.

Cheers,

Matt.

On my Technics i have rhe same problem, but the lights were with another plinth.6V-2W-i put autolamps-12V-4W..Its the same in Ohm's Law.Try something similar.Another option are the LEDs.About 470-510 ohm resistors serially connected per lamp.Another issue is if you keep the original.

Thanks Karodmitrov,

Although it has been near 12 months since your helpful reply the job is still incomplete. I have bought the LEDs & resistors and am yet to fit them. The original globes are near impossible to obtain. Since my shed amplifier, an old Logitech, has just passed away I will get onto this project ASAP. You can't work in your shed without some background music.

By the way, would you know what these globes' part number would be?

Cheers,

Matt.

You can get similar lamps to those by getting the fuse-type 6 volt lamps. You simply remove the end caps of the glass with a soldering iron the pull the lamps out. You may need to add a little wire to them, but this solution works.

Thanks Johnnysan,

That got me thinking. There are these that I found after typing your suggestion into Google:

Another page lead me to the correct term for the lamps I'm after, 6 volt axial lamps. I'll have to see what is available in Australia. Thanks for your suggestion.
