This is the right approach. A rigid cabinet with the drivers opposed but frames mechanically coupled would result in very little vibration.

I had a GL75 turntable sat on top of a 2x12" subwoofer for a while. Zero LF feedback, because the sub was dual-opposed and didn't vibrate.

I want to recall an old thread on a Swedish hifi forum named "the ikea challange" where the object was to identify suitable furinture candidates and modify them to accomodate various speakers, even sub/sat solutions where made, indistinguishable from the origonal appearance taking normal usage/placement in a room into account, invisible speakers in other words, quite intresting, and the WAF was through the roof
