is it better to get speaker wiring harnesses so you dont have to vut any wires? or to cut them and add yyour own connectors?

If it's a newer car through a dealer, or if it's not paid off, use adapters. If they see that you've cut electrical lines, they'll throw a fit. Especially if you're interested in keep any sort of warranty.

And you know they probably use leaded in your amp. So...

A proper wire-wire solder joint is with a lot of direct copper-copper contact area. And anyways, havn't you heard of pretinned copper wire? That's not silver solder.

A correctly done solder joint would be best, though for reasons mentioned above it would be better to use a harness.

You can buy solder on speak on connectors so you can just attach regular speaker wire to them and power the speakers off the receivers built in amps however I would not push it very hard as the Pyles require a fair bit more power than your receiver can produce and will overload it if pushed hard.

I despise electrical tape.

Alas, it does have it's uses.
