Now something different...

Don't hack the damn thing up. Not only will you need to add a filament transformer, the output transformer may not like the 6550's either. Put in good quality 6L6GC's and be happy with it. You can buy a very decent solid state amp for what you'd pay for closely matched 6550's from some Vendors.  
If it's not giving you the power you want, sell it to someone who it is good enough for and buy something else. 6550's aren't going to solve all the bass amp problems of the world.  

John Martin I have to agree with Andy. 6550's... -- 10/23/1998 8:38 AM
