Well two real 1176LN's linked was always a crapshoot at best. Rarely seen two that 'match' in settings, you had to tweak alot. The newer versions may be better, but given that the circuitry is different in the two units you are trying to use, using them for stereo is pretty dodgy IMO.
Now-in the case you are suggesting [2 mic's on a el gtr cab] they aren't really stereo, unless they are spread a bit front to back, so why bother to link them? They might just be fine set to respond a little differently anyway if you are using the royer farther back. Did you have another reason? Your signal chain and methodology seem fine otherwise and should yield a great sound. Good luck and happy guitar!
