Default Crossover microphonics?

Does anyone have experience about whether passive parts can be in the same cabinet as the woofer, or it is preferable to have the crossover in its own compartment? It's not as if a capacitor is as microphonic as, say, a bad 12AX7, but on the other hand if there is some modulation it might manifest itself in subtle ways. Answers?

I wouldn't worry too much about microphonics. I think any speaker design I've seen that has the crossover in a separate compartment does so for easy access for tweaking of the crossover.
