when connecting connectors to wire, the standard is simply to use a proper crimping tool....such as this click here (weird place to buy, but those are the crimpers to have)

as for connecting wire to wire, standard solder w/ heat activated shrink wrap or crimp connectors (CLICK HERE)will ensure a solid bond w/ longevity


hope that helps
