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 
the speakers)...  
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 
the radio wire..?
