The basics for a rough idle, check for a leak of some kind, fuel--egr--vacuum.
Use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, see if pressure will hold for a bit with everything off. If it drops like a rock, you have a fuel pressure leak. Check the vac line on fuel pressure regulator, where applicable, if it has gas in it, the regulator is faulty.
Smell of your crankcase oil dipstick, does it smell like gas? If so, either you don't change oil and filter very often or there is a fuel leak getting into your oil.
Any applicable trouble codes?

In your trunk there are 2 small amps. The first amp is connected to your car speakers. The second amp is connected to your subwoofer. Once you locate the subwoofer amp. Your subwoofer amp will be the amp close to the sub enclosure. Unplug the subwoofer from the amp. Your next step is to unscrew the 4 10mm bolts so that you can remove the sub enclosure. At this point you can now remove the enclosure. It will take a some time as it always seems to be up there pretty good. But once it starts to move it should come out with little work. I hope this helps with your removal of the subwoofer.
