 The only thing wrong with my car is that the driver front speaker is
 out.  Just took apart the door and tested the speaker using an analog
 voltmeter, the speaker has no power.  I was flipping through the Bently
 and found there is a speaker relay (J225) for the Bose speaker(s).  But,
 I cannot find it.  It says that the relay is in the aux. relay panel
 below the instrument cluster, but the wiring diagram doesn't mention
 anything about a speake relay.  Anyone BTDT?
That failure mode typically points to a break in the wiring in the hinge area (rubber bellows) of the driver's door.

On my car, when I turn on the radio, I hear a relay click under the driver's side knee panel (aux relay area). If your passenger speaker is working, you should also hear that 'click'.  Pull the kick panel, and turn the radio on/off until you find the relay (but check that wiring first...)
