Question Location for installing a radio

Having NO expertise in radio's, I have a question to ask.

I have looked at the on-line picture of the Metra replacement for the OEM radio.

Take a look at my previously posted picture of the area under the center console shroud, Thread included below. It appears the area beneath the metal shelf (under the cupholder area) has nothing below it, possibly due to the plastic shelf area in the shroud, just above the floor.

If my presumption is correct, couldn't a premium radio of any size, be mounted under that metal shelf (and attached to it) by cutting a hole in the shroud above the plastic floor shelf? And having the face plate mounted even with the front of the upper cupholder area?

I know some of you have installed radios for a living, previously, and some of you are very talented DIY'ers, what do you think? Just drop the wiring down and connect.
That would put a radio in easy reach of driver and passenger and somewhat out of view of those on the outside looking in.

OEM center console, what's underneath?
