    Distro block

    I ordered a 1/0 to 4 gauge distro block by accident and I'm only running 4 gauge wire. How can I get the 4 gauge wire strongly secure to the distro block

    Do I need terminals to hook 4 gauge wire to my amps? Or can I just wrap the wire around the screw and tighten it down? Any help thanks.

    your 4awg should fit in there with absolutly no problems.

    0awg is BIGGER than 4awg, and it will fit.

    Thing is, it's a knukonceptz one and it's net screw style. In fact, I don't even know how to use it myself . It looks like hollow screws you take out, then put the wire in, and hand screw them back. If anyone could help me out with this one, I'm stuck. If it slip the 4ga in it looks like it will just slip out.

    Just tighten it down, I don't think the wire will come out.
