The stereo fitted to the cactus seems to be a Magneti Marelli model code 9810476280 the image below is one I found of a used one that came from a 1.6 blue hdi.

The image above shows the rear connections, I can't make out a subwoofer connection but maybe wrong. Maybe an email to magneti marelli might reveal if it is possible

This particular unit seems to be fitted to a number of different cars, so another option is to see if any if those have subwoofers installed.

However you may want to have a read of this before you investigate further ;)

Thanks for information JohnC. ;)
I will try to contact them.

I read the thread under link and I can say it helped as well. I am dissapointed :/
I know there are many other aftermarket active subwoofers, but it voids warranty so I am annoyed..

I've wondered about adding a subwoofer under the front seat. There's a Kenwood model for sale on Amazon:
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Pioneer-TS-WX120A-Powerful-Amplified-Subwoofer/dp/B00L12UZ0Q/
Half the price of the Citroen one. Needs wiring into the speaker cables. I guess you're worried this would void the warranty for the car's audio system? I'm sure it could be wired in reversibly so if the audio system fails the sub could be removed with no visible trace.

Hi,

You are right, only concern is not to void warranty (audio system or all electrical systems). I don`t want to wait 5 years to listen good music in my car :(

Otherwise I would go for Alpine SWE-815, occupies more space but has really good reviews. I suppose the way of connection would be same with under seat subwoofer.
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Alpine-SWE-815-ALPINE-SWE-815/dp/B008H9UVPU/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1466445441&sr=1-1&keywords=alpine+swe+815

Under seat or this one, I am really not sure how it can be dismounted in undetectable way if something goes wrong.
