Default Original Cary CAD-300se upgrades?

I have original Cary CAD-300se mono block amplifiers (the ones with just one 6SL7). When I bought them, they were already upgraded with Cary oil caps. The 300b's are JJ. Could anyone recommend some upgrades? Or am I better off to eBay them? I really enjoy how they sound, but I really wish they had more power. I think if it were somehow possible to get 100W of 300b power I'd be in heaven. Right now they are driving Soliloquy 5.2 speakers. I have been told to try building/buying a single driver full range speaker with something like a fostex fe168ez. Thoughts? Opinions? Recommendations?

Recently, I built a sub using Seas L26ROY. I put 100Hz FMOD high pass filter before the Cary amps and let the subs take 100Hz down. This gave me a little more volume, but not much.

Thanks,

-dave
