What gauge wire do i need for my new head unit?

I just got a Pioneer DEH-1300MP head unit for my 2004 Sebring sedan and I'm planning on installing it manually. I've already mapped out what wires from the new harness go to what wires on the old harness. My question is what gauge of wire connectors i would use? I'm planning on using the butt splice connectors where you slide the wires into each end and crimp it down.. http://media.qcsupply.com/catalog/product/cache/1/image/370x/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/6/1/61270.jpg

Answer:

None of the above. Use crimp caps, like these:

These are better, because they allow a direct wire-to-wire contact, and you only need one crimp per connection. Butt splices require two crimps, and the power flows through the connector instead of a direct connection between wires, so the chances of a poor connection are higher.

You should be able to find crimp caps at the same stores you'd find butt connectors. Crimp caps designed for 18-16 gauge wire should work fine.
