Does a pre-amp put out any watts?

  1. Does a preamp itself, lets say an Ampeg Svp-Pro preamp, put out any watts itself or do you have to run it through a power amp?
  2. You have to run into a power amp to get any power.

    the swr Interstellar Overdrive has power tubes in it, i think it puts out like 10 watts or something. Most preamps need some sort of poweamp though.
