if you can avoid mounting the amp to the box please do ....the rattling on your amp is not good

Don't do it. The box vibrates and your electronics won't like that much.

The above mentioned advice seems logic and true. I have mounted amplifiers on Sub boxes before and have experienced no loss or damage. Most of my installations were on systems of less than 300 watts. At higher power I can see how things can quickly change.

If you would like to mount the amp on the box because it would eliminate grounding/short circuit errors between wiring and/or you just need the room in your trunk, then consider using rubber busshings between your amp and the box to reduce vibration.

When you have a system that makes it so you can't breath right when it hits... then yea, don't be mounting your amp on the box...
