The amps, while very good, are not enough for the Vandys. They really need 100 watts to deliver their best.

I assume buy your choice of speaker and amplifier you appreciate musicality. Your speakers will preform better with more power but kt-88 will not give you the same beauty in the midrange. the sub is not the answer. A better solution might be a mesa baron or music reference rm-9 or similar powerfull el-34 amp. Also a sweet sounding (like a meitner mtr-101)solid state amp with a pure tube designed pre-amp(like the Audible Illusions).
I disagree with both of my good friends. If you go to a 2w sub, you will cut the power demands on the main amps substantially cuz the lows will be rolled off at about 80hz. So you will get deeper bass, and teh amps will have to work less hard, and that will open up the mids and upper bass quite a bit.
