You may think what you are hearing is better than SE, but I can assure you it is wrong. I am sure it sounds different than SE but most would not enjoy it.
And it is very dangerous to do this to your amp. I never once said what you are doing would not produce audio, it will. Not correct audio but it will. It can also damage your amp, depending on the amps design and if it has any output protection builtin.
You are much better off just using a SE amp of good quality than doing this.
