I've made my own cables for my 2 subs that im building , is it a good idea to solder all of the ends of my cables ( instead of just leaving them on bare wire) , same for the end in the sub before they are conected to the voice coils.
....Simply put,.. Just leave wires bare or solder all ends ??

no need for solder if you have a good physical connection.

Listen. It's All Good.

How are they connected now?

(I think you are asking about 'tinning' the wires with solder, rather than making a soldered connection. I agree that you probably should not tin the wires.)
