tube socket spacing

tube socket spacing
Hi all,  
Is 2" (center to center) enough space between:  
A) the phase inverter tube and the 1st EL84 of an  
AC30 clone?  
B) The 4th EL84 and a typical 8 pin tube rectifier?  
Real estate is expensive! I'm worried about possible interference and/or over heating. This is a 16x8x2 chassis which will be used as a head. As it stands, there is just enough space w/ all the tubes in line across the back.  
Thanks in advance. Joe
