    Power supplies must be a hack-free zone.

    if you are well experienced in electronics and have spent some time making power supplies,
    the real answer is yes.

    HOWEVER it is not recommended and you must know the wiring of both units and how to
    do this - - and just how/where are you going to mount the pair?

    the right thing to do is to just get another PS of the correct ratings
