Don't these things vibrate too much to be used as a table? I see someone has put his M80's atop of EP500's-would they be stable?

It would seem to me, theoretically, that, if properly constructed, a good subwoofer shouldn't vibrate at all. It should make everything else vibrate. I have a clock sitting on my EP500. So far it hasn't moved, and I just played the "Darla" scene from Finding Nemo for a friend last night. She nearly leaped into my lap (which, of course, was the point of playing the scene )

In the new copy of the Axiom newsletter, Alan mentions that it is OK to use Axiom subs for a table, such as putting a lamp on one. Like you, I was surprised by this, but in a good way, as in the WAF for my EP500 just went way up!

Maybe Axiom could incorporate this into their marketing strategy.

Did your bucket of popcorn have a hole in the bottom of it, too?

I used my STF-2 as an end table for a couple of years and the only issue was that it wasn't really the best place sonically, but it worked fine nonetheless.
