Doubt valve change will do anything at all--Unless one is faulty!

Speaker wires in phase??

What is the model?
Is it the eBay "YAQIN VK-2100 Integrated Valve Tube Power Amplifier Amp" selling for 300 pounds?

If it is, check Yaqin VK-2100 mods
You will find a lot of information and modifications taht you can do to tailor the sound to your taste... also some people reports that "Some might find this amplifier a little bright and forward"...

Welcome! We like puzzles, so we try to help each other.

As stated before by Alastair, the obvious reason to lack bass is to have the speakers working in opposite phase, so make sure they are correctly wired. You have nothing to lose, why not reverse the wiring on one of the speakers and see the result.

And what about the monitor audio rs6? If they are new units they need to run (burn in) a few days more before getting a more "warm" sound. Some people reports that they have "extended highs", so the amp must have a clean output without putting to much emphasis on high frequencies or else the speakers will show it.

Most of the times is a matter of finding a good combination of amp + speakers + source to make the "sound" we like. Can you try a different pair of speakers?
Maybe you can take your amp to a showroom and tested it with different speakers.

A EQ will be a band-aid solution... at best.

Find the issue/problem and address that, rather than try and cover it up.
