    large ring terminal for 4 awg wire

    I'm going to use a seat belt bolt to ground my amp, but the bolt is pretty large. Where could I get a ring terminal with a hole diameter about a 1/2 inch to 5/8 inch big? Would a spade terminal work?

    I usually just buy a ring terminal and hold it with a pliars and drill the hole out as big as I need it to be.

    Yeah I actually thought about that. Hopefully the rockford power kit I bought comes with ring terminals large enough to drill through and still have some metal left.

    Make a ground with a nut sert rivet. I find doing what you doing is just lazy.

    Home depot will probably carry something too. In the worst case you can get a lug for 4 ga wire bolt that to seat belt bolt then tighte3n as normal terminal. I have ring terminals for 14 ga that fit that bolt so 4 should be availbe. If you cant find one PM me ill through one in he mail to ya I have a ton of rings and lugs
