I've put in several... Not sure how you may have it hooked up, or how the
Kenwood's speaker grounds are set up (some radio's use a common ground for
You didn't mention if you were using the stock, OEM wiring, but I believe the
front speakers are green wires ( the - side has a black stripe) and the rear
speakers, if I am remembering correctly are red/blue, black/white, brown, and
the last color escapes me. For the rear speakers, your best bet is to bypass
the headphone thing in the back... I am guessing that the higher-powered
aftermarket stereos may fry it... and the wire guage running to the rear
speakers, is too small of a gauge, IMO.
Not sure which grey/white wire you are referring to... Is it an Audi wire or
