Hmmmm, there's lots of fuses and wiring etc that, but there's also a big space where you can mount a subwoofer, but
I didn't see the amp there.

I had a look on RealOEM and although it doesn't give the location, both the unit and the mounting frame are shown vertical (i.e long edge top to bottom) so a side panel somewhere seems likely??
