solderless connections for all connections. sometimes if i dont have the right connector, I'll splice the leads together and tape them for the time being.

i'll solder the leads together when I get the ideal system for my car.If other people are willing to pay me a little bit more to solder the leads together then I'll do that. Using solderless connectors with the right crimping tool makes for an excellent connection, well only if you dont over crimp.

i twist the leads together then press them with pliers and then tape as a substitute to soldering. it works great.

I agree.  Tape alone = crap in my book.  Anyone who twists and tapes and calls himself an installer is lying.  Solderless crimp-on butt splices, solderless crimp connectors, or solder with either tape or shrink tubing over the connection.
