    How do YOU fit oversized wire in push terms...

    ^^
    IE.., Bought some 10g Knu to wire up my my 12s to 1ohm, and there is NO way possible to even think about fitting 2x 10gauge in my SA12s push terminals... lol.

    Pro tips? (Besides the obvious of cutting the wire in half and thus nullifying the bigger wire)

    put bolts on the box. Run leads from each terminal to sep bolts and on outside of box use ring terminals and wire it up how you may need.

    This. Most subs that have push terminals have a bolt that attached the terminal itself...you can actually attach an 8g ring terminal to that bolt and run it to another bolt that connects the outside of your box to the inside. I'm using 10g speaker wire with 8g ring terminals on it so I can do that same setup.

    mr ideal concepts taught me that. Much easier than taking sub out of box every time
