it would a lot safer to get a proper casing for that. You're looking at a fire hazard with a cardboard box and those components.

Not to mention throwing small but annoying amounts of RF interference everywhere... there's probably a cell site technician, ham radio operator, or similar -- trying to figure out where "that damn noise source" is.

RF shielding has gotten pretty poor on modern cases, but a cardboard box takes the cake.
