This may sound like an odd question...
I understand how an attenuator generally works, cutting the wattage of an amp so you can reach that sweet spot of the amp at lower volumes. But I was wondering if it could work in reverse, for example, w/ a valve jr. If I had a valve jr. going to a 25 watt attenuator to the speakers, will it make the amp head as loud as a 25 watt amp, or is the just a dumb idea. haha

No... an attenuator lowers the amplitude of a signal without distorting(changing) its waveform. What you need is an amp to boost the amplitude of the signal.

Yeah, I actually just thought of exactly what you said as soon as I posted this thread, thanks for the help.
