Blue - No splicing. Picked up a set of MC4 connectors with 4ft of #10 wire connected. Pic doesn't show it very well...but the connectors fit right into the cable inlet (just below the curved portion) and the wires feed through water tight nuts. And the 4ft of cable will be plenty to attach to my controller, which is up front and very close to the batteries.

I just ran the # 6 cable from the charge controller out the front to an Andersen connector. Click image for larger version

This connects to the other half of the connector on 30 ft of # 6 welding cable with the male half of a Pollack connector.
This goes to the female half which is attached to my truck. Click image for larger version

Where I happen to have my panels mounted on the truck cap.
It could just as easily go to a portable setup in reverse order.
