Hi.
I would like to know if there is any danger to damage the amp (due to vibration or something like that), if I put my crown XLS-602b amp directly over my speaker?



Thanks

It's not a sub.

This is the speaker : http://www.crossaudio.ca/ps12.htm

Hi, It's not the best, how would you like to be vibrated. Eventually you might contract some ailment.  jeenie67

Hi,
I have my 8 space Gator Amp rack on my Peavey 1810 Bass cab but I also have some heavy vibration isolation Foam between the cab and the Amp rack.
If you look around you will find some Isolation material that you can use to cut down the Vibration's.
It is designed just for that.
I would be hesitant on just setting my amp rack right on the cab.
You should Isolate it somehow.
   Later,
