¿Fact?  Q = XC-tune/RL.  Two tubes doubles I-anode, which cuts RL in 
Half. and doubles the pF required for C-tune.  However, two tubes doubles 
C-anode.  Thus, "System" Q remains constant provided that C-tune is set 
to a higher value during tune for max P.out with max drive tuneup.  

---  Free, unsolicited advice.  It has been my experiences that 
words/phrases such as:
/  That is a lie.
/  This is a fact.
/  As a matter of fact,
/  I am telling the truth.
/  I would not lie to you.
/  I am not going to lie to you.
/  Mr./Ms. ___ is a liar.
/  Actually ...
/This is the absolute truth.
... are clues.
