    If i were to add another battery to a Seymour Duncan STC Preamp, thus making it 18V, would it give the preamp a larger boost, or just more headroom, hence more clarity?

    You might get more headroom, but not more boost.

    Great! Too much boost on a preamp bothers me, as it really screws with the gain levels on the amp..
