    So I pulled off the door panel today to take a look at the front speakers. Theres a wiring harness thats plugged into the speaker and then 4 other wires that are also plugged into the speaker. What is the wiring harness for and what are the other two wires for?

    When I took my front door apart for the first time, I noticed that the speaker had 4 terminals, but there was nothing hooked up to two of the terminals.

    I'm pretty sure the extra terminals are for the cell phone integration feature. My A4 doesn't have the feature, but it makes sense that Audi would use a speaker that wasn't integrated into the factory sound... they cheated and used a dual-voice coil driver to save some money and mounting space in the cabin.

    In some VAG cars they just jump the tweeter like that. Especially since you do not have bose. Pics?
