    I am not sure that I understand the question but if you mean "Can you place the centre speaker on top of the subwoofer" I think that the answer would be no, as the centre speaker should be on asolid base and a good subwoofer will probably produce vibrations.

    Technicaly a "Good Subwoofer" should should be properly built/ braced so it has has no enclosure vibrations at all.

    Also many people in America use Sonotube which is a cylinder
    for holding concerete, it is made out of cardboard, is extremely strong, this makes a great subwoofer enclosure, all you do is add 2 inch endcaps and a tuned vent of so required. People in the USA and Canada use it right up to huge subwoofers with 7-8 cubic feet of internal airspace.
