Default Modifying Servo board for higher voltage/current NEED expert electronics advice!

Hello

I am working on a project that requires me to add more voltage and current to my servos. I NEED to use the servos that I currently have but need to replace the servo motor with a larger more powerful servo motor. Does anyone know if I can take the two wires that are connected to the servo motor and connect them to some type of voltage/current regulator to power my larger servo motor?

Not sure if its a voltage regulator or current regulator that I need but I have already measured the voltage that comes from those two wires and its -6v-0-6v depending on the direction and speed of the servo. I would need to increase that voltage for my larger servo motor.

So if the signal voltage from those wires was -6 the regulator would supply -12v, if the signal voltage was 0v the regulator would provide 0v, and if the signal voltage was 6v the regulator would supply 12v and so on.

Any suggestions?

Thanks!
Paul
