Question Vents underneath front seats?

Hi guys,

Do you know what the pieces of plastic are beneath the front seats? are they required for anything?

I read one member removing them to place an under-seat subwoofer, and I am wondering if this is safe to do?

They provide climate control to the rear of the cabin. Under some circumstances, they may be vital to good battery operation and that is why the engineers put them there. You can see air intakes for the battery fans on the sides of the rear seats.
