Questions re: factory sub for an 03 PT

(1) will the sub encloser from the second generation (2006?-2010) PTs fit in an 03?

I don't disagree that a PT is not the ideal first car for my niece. Heck, I used to like them. My sister has had one for about 12 years (that I maintain) and my brother used to have one and had it...
