Best way to reduce Filament voltage?

Major PainBest way to reduce Filament voltage?
Well after using a hammond power trannie on a new build Ive got 7.0vac on my filaments and was wondering the best way to reduce the voltage?  
Im guessing that 7.0 will damage the tubes and they would be better on the 6.3 vac.  
Would using 2-100 ohm 5 watt resitors ,one resistor on each filamnet leg do the trick? or is there  
another way to do this?
