I don't have much room. My cable box is a little warm, is it dangerous to put a system on it? Or some?

Probably a bad idea.

Your cable box likely has ventilation holes on the top, blocking those vents with a console would be a bad idea as it reduces the cable box's ability to cool itself. Not only that but now your console has to deal with essentially a higher ambient temperature while it is running which will make your console operate at a higher than normal temperature too.

Point is, bad idea, everything will run at a higher temperature which is likely undesirable.
