Building a tweeter
It's a closed back horn loaded bullet style tweeter.If you don't need the "box" for other drivers you can just mount it on a small board.Look up pics of Fostex bullet tweeters and you should come across some examples.DeKay 
6SN7GTB replacement
Thought the GT was rated as 300V (not 350V) maximum plate voltage.Bigger difference than 350V.There is an "old" production 6SN7 rated @ 450V, but I do not recall the "after" 6SN7 "letters".Again, as mentioned, it depends upon the circuit design.DeKay

Advice on room treatment
If you can pull it off, as a free experiment, try placing the speakers with a "corner" between them.This is a proven "old school" remedy for square rooms with front firing driver speakers.If not satisfied (you do not explain what is off with the s... 
What your choice speakers with spikes or speakers with a vibration isolation device?
The other brand is Isoacoustics, which I've seen @ Guitar Center.They have a sub platform that's $50-$60.DeKay 
What your choice speakers with spikes or speakers with a vibration isolation device?
I found it:Auralex SubDude ($70-$80).I had confused it with another platform manufacturer who makes stands that look like square/rectangular scissor/baby gates.Anyway, the SubDude is reviewed to be a good choice for suspended wood floors.When I ha... 
What your choice speakers with spikes or speakers with a vibration isolation device?
That's what I remember about the company.They have isolation platforms for floor standing speakers and subs as well as little ones for desk top speakers.I'll repost if I figure out the name of the company (pretty certain I read comments/reviews he... 
What your choice speakers with spikes or speakers with a vibration isolation device?
Interesting cables (never heard of them, but just went through their site).Your listening room is approx. the same dimensions as mine (though probably better as it's a rectangle instead of the odd horseshoe I have).Assume that bass it full/deep as...
