As an electrician that uses no black electrical tape for ANYTHING on the job, may I suggest soldering everything.

Theres some damned goo in black electrical tape that comes off all over everything within minutes when removing. If it gets hot, the goo will come out of the tape, making it a bukakke cat o' nine-tails of goo all over your interior.

Silicone splicing tape will stick to itself without any goo, its a light gray color (3M brand, anyways)

Scotch "Self-fusing, Silicone electrical tape" 1"x30'x.012in SKU# 0-51128-57261-0

(oops didnt realize how expensive it was. We have it at work)

http://www.amazon.com/Weller-WES51-Analog-Soldering-Station/dp/B000BRC2XU/ What we use at work, good enough for FDA approval (when calibrated). Use as little solder as possible, and clean off any goo left over from the flux with rubbing alcohol.
If its good enough to solder capacitors on RF tubes for MRI machines at work, it's good enough for us :)

As for me, I dont like the look of a "built-in" system. I'd rather have an aftermarket El Cheapo stuck to my carpet with velcro.

1200W peak, which means they are only 848 watts (Peak is a sales pitch myth)

lol yea when i pulled the remote wire for my old cd changer out of the dash in my explorer there was electrical tape all over it. hated it but the stuff works, esp if you melt it to the wire you're wrapping. only thing i like abt it is its quick and cheap
