w201 Headunit Hardwiring ?

I've got the MB wiring code but I've run into 1 major problem. Their's 3 sets of Green/Black wires which is the Right Front (+). I knew their was going to be a problem when I began to strip the wires. I saw 2 pair of wires jointed by a weird connection then the last set was free along with the rest.

I've got the this POS Lanzar headunit. I got for free my best friend recked his truck 3 days after I installed it so he gave it to me

Not sure if i understand your message, the punctuation was confusing I think.. If you want to check which speaker is which, there's a well accepted way of doing this. Get a 9v battery (one of those little ones you put your tongue on and it hurts). Put the 2 wires from a speaker onto the 2 terminals, and you'll hear a 'pop' from the relevant speaker.

Also when doing this, if you see the speaker move forward, then whichever wire is on +ve on the battery, is the speakers +ve wire. Useful if you get confused. Music will sound crappy if you wire +ve and -ve the wrong way round between different speakers..

Oh I forgot - do you have the 4 speakers with the front/rear fader switch near the gear selector? If so, you should have only 2 pairs of speaker wires, which get split front and rear in the fader switch.

I forgot this point, because I've bypassed mine.
