Looks like the radio/speakers connectors with an aftermarket fader plugged into them.
Without the fader installed, the two connectors are normally plugged to each other to get the amp output to the front speakers.
Adding a fader is a trick many use to get an additional pair of speaker outputs to add rear speakers that are not normally there.
The wires that go into the larger harness are on their way to the dash front speakers.
There is no factory harness for the rear speakers so those get usually wired manually to the back and spliced to the rear side of the fader wires.
That is what I saw in the picture too. I have that aftermarket fader on the 99A I bought last week to fix up from a long sleep.

I'm kinda +1 on a fader -- mostly due to the wonky aftermarket plastic sleeving over the harness there (not OEM)
I have one of those faders in a box leftover from a rear speaker install for a guy that bought a SE, he bought the Add on Accessories speaker /fader kit and asked me to install them. His wires to the rear speakers were routed wrong and only needed fixing, he had me install the speakers anyhow after soldering in patches and rerouting on the wireing.

Those aftermarket faders are prone to failure.
