5E3 with Power Amp

5E3 with Power Amp
I wondered if anyone had tried running the 5E3 signal through an uncolored power amp to drive a 2"x12"? As much as I LOVE the tone I get, one big bass rig ruins my day. I was thinking that by using a power amp, it would be a "5E3 on steroids" but not a Fender twin.

take a looky here:  
I've seen guys in clubs run their deluxe into something like a twin which is just functioning as a power amp.  
just make sure that there's nothing solid state in the signal chain!!! We won't stand for that!!!

I built something like that to use with my tweed Champ. Basically I copied the design from the Garnet Herzog, which is a slightly-modded Champ with an adjustable line-out added. Easy to build, works great and fits into a tiny case for hidden usage. :)
