EC5's
I found the BEST way to solder up the ec5's is to take the gold bullets and pre melt some solder into them...then take the soldering iron and heat the bullet connector until the solder melts and forms a "pool" then just drop the wire into the pool and you're done..

Tom...the wires just get soldered on to the connector and then you snap the ec5 bullet connectors into the blue plastic plug from the backside...

if you need to remove the connector from the blue plug later just putit in a vice and punch out the bullet from the front ..

NO NEED to feed the wires through the blue plastic before soldering..

just wanted to add, i find soldering ANY connector is easier with a 250 watt iron (pistol grip type, can be found at sears) you actually seem to heat up the connector less as you don't have to bring the whole connector up to temperature. It takes about 20 seconds to heat the iron, about 2 seconds to apply a good joint and done! Good solder joint every time.

Agree, powerful solder iron is very important for that task. I use 140w solder iron and I am very happy with it (before I used 40w solder iron). Now it takes only couple minutes to solder a connector.
