Gunn, state of the art connections are crimped; using the proper connector and crimp tool, they are as good as a piece of wire. 5 in a row is stupid, so I won't speak to that, lol.
Soldering a connection in something that vibrates usually means the wire breaks right at the end of the solder.
There are common solder connections on the market that are integral to a heat shrinkable covering that provides the proper deflection control to be reliable.
I always install a stereo by splicing the decks adapter/pigtail to the car adapters; metra sells all that $hit.
Then you just plug it in. That makes the hard part the "how the hell does this go in that tiny hole?"

You missed the properly crimped part, lol.
I use solder connectors like these now; it's a 2 minute 100% connection.




I havent managed to fail these yet, and I'm 5 years in on Lazarus.
