Strange cable

Can anyone tell me what this cable is for?
It's located in the middle beneath the dashboard.
My guess is that it's some sort of Radio connector for an aftermarket system.
The original Becker stereo is installed and fully operational.

The wire harness looks stock but not the taped part of the connector as well as the red/black wire. The opening in the center console isn't stock neither. The only thing I can think of would be the bluetooth wire harness (18 pin connector). I was thinking also about the separated handsfree wire harness but this ends with only a 6 pin connector but it should be around in this area too (goes together with the bluetooth wire harness).

I've found this (Ebay Link).
Looks like someone removed the factory amplifier of the HiFi package and used the wires to reconnect the speakers to the amp in the Becker system.

And the hole in the console is from the factory.

You labor under the assumption all 430 are built the same.

They are not.

The amp should be located in the 'box' below the dash in the middle as far as I can see.
I also have the subwoofer box in the back.
