Mysterious White Plug

While doing the instrument removal & installation routine, I came across two pairs of wires dangling loose, as shown in the photo. The bulbed socket is probably the famous-for-being-loose "Rotary Exterior Light Switch" illumination lamp as mentioned here...
What is this in/behind-dash located light bulb for?
and here...

...and I'll be attempting to get that back where it belongs.

My query is about the white plug. The wires are black and black/green, which matches the front speaker wires in the MB electrical diagram. I just want to confirm that this is the factory speaker wire before I snip it. My radio & speakers long gone (second photo, please excuse the filth).

Thanks in advance.

Looks like a Becker speaker plug. They were black or white, the two blade connections are 90 degrees from each other.

looks like the connection to the radio speakers to me, ( from the radio) the other end would actually end up at the speaker ,

Thanks fellas, that's what I was hoping to read.

When I removed the front speakers, they were Infiniti brand. So, the original wires must've been pulled and new wires run between the replacement speakers and Sony head unit.

Yeah

I always solder on the factory pigtails. But I guess that's too much to ask of an electronics store.
