    It's not popular, but I've used wire nuts for the last 20 years for Hu installs. I've never had a connection failure and they enable faster changes when adding/deleting/modifying sh-tuff.

    I just installed my new Kenwood BT848U HU last weekend. I layed the Kenwood harness out on my bench along with a Toyota adapter and soldered all of my connections and then covered them with heat shrink.

    I've used butt connectors on all my previous installs, no problems. Just make sure to get a good solid crimp..

    That's how I did mine. Laid it all out, soldered, heat shrink.
