Help! Trying to straighten out stupidity

97 GT. original owner removed the factory rear speakers. I mean the whole setup in the rear. Installed an aftermarket stereo/navi/DVD system and an amplifier with subs in the trunk. When I bought the car the amp and woofers were removed and the factory speakers were still missing. I bought the rear speaker setup in eBay and trying to figure out the nightmare of wires in the dash to get it working. Question is what is the connector in the picture for? It's a part of the factory wiring but doesn't have a spot to hook up on the rear assembly. Also a picture of the wiring nightmare for your amusement.

Electrical can be a major headache, I wish you luck and determination, try not to punch the dash too hard/many times...

Can't see all the way in to that rats nest but it looks like they may have cut the OE radio harness instead of using the correct adaptor. Can you provide us with any info on what the OE stereo was and any more info about what you got off EBay?

This connector is a part of the factory wiring on the trunk. There isn't anywhere on the speaker assembly to attach it. The wiring has two of these connectors and they are placed at each end accordingly.
