    4awg to amp wont fit?

    I am installing components and rewiring my car for future audio mods that I someday will be able to afford. The problem I have is that the cables I've got came without any terminals. What type of terminal am I supposed to use to harness the copper from the 4awg and channel that into the battery terminal on my amp. Here's a pic of the amp:
    it doesn't look like theres a way for it to fit...

    thanks

    Pretty much any car audio shop will have 4ga. forks that will crimp on to the wire for use with those type of terminals on your amplifier.

    Looks like they were intended for 8ga wire, youll need spade connectors.

    why are you running a 4 gauge for such a small amp?

    you could run 8 or even 10 probably...

    if you didnt put in a fuse, i'd do that and when you do, run a smaller wire ^^
