  1. I am trying to install my aftermarket Sony to Audi A4 B7, but looks like I don’t understand anything at all on those wiring system. It has three connectors (one for power source, middle one for speakers and has some other additional wiring, and down below has some brown thik wires).
    I don’t know what should I do to make it work, because the radio that I had, had no bluetooth or any kind of nowadays technology except satellite radio).
    I did connect positive and ground wiring, radio turned on, but tried to find connections for speakers, none of the wires were giving any signal at all.

    1. Hey there, in your Sony stereo
      Black is ground attach to brown fat wire
      Yellow is positive attach to red fat wire
      Red wire attach to tiny red wire
      That should turn your stereo on when key is in.

      Then your speakers wiring
      There is just 4 wires parallel in one of plug in front speaker and
      For rear speaker put 4 extra wires drag to back and connect manually
