Putting a 2x12 combo on its side?

What would be the issues with doing this?
The thinking being that on stage I could get the speakers nearer my ear, so I can turn down the volume more along with every other loud barsteward on stage to avoid the ridiculous volume escalation (war?) that goes on. Then with another 2x12 extension cab below (also on it's side) I could have a 4-speaker-high tower. Better than a 4x12 half stack IME.

Would tubes or internals be harmed?

i don't use a 2x12 combo unless it's turned on its side.

nothing actually. i bought an avatar cab and asked them yo put the feet on the end to stand it up vertically. it does exactly what you said, raises the speakers and helps sound dispersion.

only downside - you pretty much need a lunchbox or mid size head to fit on top. a full size 100 watter isnt going to fit on most normal sized 2x12s.
