    Crimp, Crimp/solder, What do you do?

    I use 4gauge wire, and I've only been crimping terminal(s) ends on. I am going to move up to 1/0 gauge wire in the future, and wondered if I should just be crimping those gargantuin things, or just soldering, or crimping and soldering... Let me know what you guys think.

    those terminals are a little expensive for me, I crimp and solder all my connections, best **** connection you can have.

    But they are soooo much easier to work with. Plus their reusable.
