Installing Stock Pioneer Sub

I have an 09 Cobalt LT without the Pioneer solution. Right now I have a sub box in the trunk with amp and everything works great. LOC from rear speakers, all that. My issue, this takes up a LOT of trunk space, so was thinking of getting a stock pioneer sub for the Cobalt that fits on the side.

The questions, in some pictures of cars with the sub pulled out, it looks like there are bolts in the sidewall that the sub then attaches to. Obviously mine doesn't have those. Anyone with experience on how they "attached" the stock sub so it is secure?

Thanks!

Look behind the carpet and there are spots you can still slide in bolts and bolt it in like factory then upgrade to a better shallow mount and run it as your current ones are.

Yup, I did this to mine. Need 3 bolts from gm. Cost me around $45. The just slide them into the body and bolt in the sub. Done.

No problem. Use a 200wrms amp so you don't blow it up
