Hey Sahil.
I don't think you need to cut the tray.You can keep your sub woofer in the trunk. But in this case get a cylindrical one. Say a JBL or Blaupunkt.
Amp can go under the seat. I have the same set up in my Optra. No issue with low frequency.
Regards

Hey buddy thnx for the reply, unfortunatly i have already got a 12inch woofer and a pioneer i think 404 amp, which i actually got to fit in my endeavour but the rear space is too less so i thought i'd rather put it in the accord. I had changed the speakers rear ones earlier and fitted pioneer 300 watts opens i am not sure about the model number but they are the high end ones give reall good sounds, i dont even feel the need for a woofer as much but since its goin waste i rather fit it.
Well my only concern is that the woofer box should not toss and tumble in the trunk.Also should i connect the amp to my speakers too? I think accord 2002 the one i have is with the factory fitted high end panel which i heard has an inbuilt small amp powering the spkers hence the effect is soo good from my spker change.If any1 has any knowledge about this pls let me know if i should connect the amp to the speakers too as i dont wanna have it torn by the end of it. I want the bass to come mainly on the woofer and as less as possible on the speakers to ensure they last longer,any clue how i can do that ?

Hey Sahil,

When you connect the amp to the output from the head unit, the amp should have an "cutoff frequency" and maybe even a cut off curve selector. Basically this is a "low pass filter" which lets only the low frequencies (bass) through the amp to the woofer. You should be able to select the upper limit of what frequencies are passed through to the subwoofer.

About not letting the bass through to the regular speakers, well, if there is no amp to the speakers its a bit complicated, i guess you could install a high pass filter (lets only highs through)....they come in two types, active(need power supply) and passive(no power supply needed).

However, i wouldnt try to kill the bass on the regular speakers unless you are planning to listen to your music REALLY loud...

Thats the solution i could think of...

Hey guys thanx alot for the help, really appreciate it. I however did get the woofer finally fitted, Rehaan i had already done the low pass thing to max that really helps coz it bass load on the spkers is much less. The accord's deck doesnt have enough settings to get the sound just pefect just basic things like Bass and Trebbile adjustments but its good enough the pretty good and as for my speakers i think they r pioneer 6975 if i am not mistaken, they go a good job
