The power tubes in particular are stronger-sounding than the factory stuff - FYI they're pre-Glasnost Soviet mil-spec (equivalent to the JAN tubes the Fender guys would kill for), and in my application sound more like a big-bottle (6L6, 7027, 6CA7) American tube - and the speaker has an efficiency rating of ~102dB which, in addition to the rounder, mellower tone, offers additional clean headroom since the power tubes aren't working as hard to produce a given volume level...
Steve, I bought some premium tubes ($180) for the Monoprice a while back. Attached is the receipt showing what I bought. I know very little about all of this. Are these good enough?

Could you point me toward the Cannabis Rex speaker you mentioned?Screenshot_20210107-201948_Adobe%20Acrobat.jpg
