I would NEVER advise mounting an amplifier to a box (something that vibrates). One of the biggest causes of failure for amplifiers is vibration.

I agree with ChevyBoy95 somewhat. Having the amp mounted to an enclosure can be bad for the amp if it is vibrating a lot. A properly braced enclosure will have little excessive vibration though, and the amp will experience vibration no matter where it is mounted due to vibration from the vehicle, and vibration from the subs. Vibration is inevitable, and only gets “worse” when you install subwoofers and increases as power/air movement increases. If your change in your cup holder or you’re able to do shirt tricks or anything else moves/vibrates while playing music, your amp is also experiencing vibration (unless you’re walled and completely sealed/eliminated vibration behind the wall.) Vibration is the nature of the beast called audio.
