There's a reason for it being so heavy.. Do You carry it around a lot?
:D Maybe recapping would do wonders here.

Even DIYing (properly) You need a rather heavy torroid transformer and
quite heavy heatsinks, metal case ect.

For Pauls comment: Remember the sensivity of the speaker comes to play
and perceived loudness doubles (that's only 3dB) when the driving
power is doubled..

I can't see nothing wrong with the idea of "over powered" amplifier,
for normal listening levels it's not driven "to the edge" and THD+N is
kept down?
