Amps on Maggie Mye Stands - Bad Idea?

Somebody stop me! No Don't!! The Mye stands for the Maggie 20.1's have the perfect horizontal rear support struts to throw a good solid piece of maple on and attach my VTL 450 tube amps, just inches from the speaker terminals. It would save space, allow super short interconnects, and look cool. But what about the vibrations in the Mye stand? How about a quarted of sorbothane hemispheres? I wanna do it, but sense it might not be the best idea. Thoughts?

See pictures of Mye Stands in this link. Thanks, Peter S.

I would not suggest placing on the stands and in back. The vibration of the speaker to the stand will make its way to the amp. Don't forget that dipole sound propagate front and rear equally so air pressure from playing too loud could also add to the vibration if placed directly behind the speaker. Aerial view of the Maggies would show that sound is made in a figure 8 pattern. So if you want it close to the speaker, the side edge of the speaker on a dedicated stand is best.
