Yes. If you notice the square cut out in the floor that Leeds to the engine compartment. This is a sealed compartment in which has a negative pressure while underway. (Positive pressure with the blower motor on) This is achieved through the venturi effect created by the louvers. Because of this, this area will need to be sealed. The toe kick and bump out is to maintain this passage for the air to be pulled out of the engine compartment. Also the cabinet will only occupy a portion of the space.
Good call this could have been easily over looked
