On many Audis, they're one and the same.  Most instructions I've seen
tell you on Audis to tie memory+power together.

With a multimeter, check resistance to find pairs(should be a couple
ohms.)  Then it'll be a matter of trial and error to figure out which
speaker is where.

BTW, the extra wires might be shown on a different page.  Follow all
the tracks, maybe the 4 are tied together physically right at the
radio, but the tie-in isn't diagrammed right on the radio.  I think
the Bentley tends to show such things same-page, but I don't know for
