Read this thread, especially post #5:

Any ideas as to where I can attach the sub to the amp and where to put the plate amp? Also, should I go for the passive crossover instead to avoid cutting out a hole and adding an extra power cable? Where inside could I put the sub? Sorry for all the questions.

There's no way to add a subwoofer inside this unit, it would need to be external.

While it's possible to do a passive sub, you'll get much better performance with a powered one. The price differential on the Parts Express site was a buck or two.

You could easily add wires from the internal speakers to the plate amp speaker-level inputs without cutting a hole, just pass them out the back through the bass reflex port.

However, this unit will no doubt give far better bass as-is compared to the unit you showed earlier, possibly enough to satisfy without mods.

If you're up for a real fixup project, here's a unit with a built-in sub and a bit more power - just doesn't work http://www.stootsi.com/store/item.aspx?item=81433349

It's for an iPod, not a PSP, but you can always go the aux jack route...

what do you expect from 2" speaker

I thought that you are trying to do as small as possible, hence the name of thread "mini"

I didn't say I was looking for a 2" though. I was looking at a 3" for the speakers I already had and was wondering what people thought of them. Sorry for the confusion. I may still end up reusing the current system I have for it (the pic I posted earlier is what it looks like) but may modify it so it can power a "sub." I also wanted to know where would be the best place to put it and if it was possible to put it in the case without building a separate enclosure and if it would fit.

Well I need to say thanks. I just bought my son one of those docking stations for his PSP.
