Lew, of course the amps came with feet; I removed them. :-)

Yes, I understand that the chassis surfaces help cool the amp, but I suspect the bottom cover does very little of that. Probably I'll apply very little SoundCoat to the ceiling of the chassis. Since I'll add little damping to the ceiling of the chassis, I plan to add four stainless-steel bars, probably 3/4-by-2-by-4-1/2" to be cushioned with some sort of Herbies pads, placed on edge atop the chassis, one each between the rows of output tubes and two alongside the frontend tubes. It's easy for me to visualize that, but I expect a few pictures will be worth hundreds of words.
