    Ok, I went to the local gas/welding supply shop and got 25ft of 1/0 welding cable for like 28 bucks, then I had to get some ring terminals and spade connnectors, I lost my mind for some reason and went to the local audio shop to buy them, for 3 1/0 ring terminals and 4 4ga. spade connectors I spent 25 bucks!..

    That just doesn't seem right :wtc:

    Now, I know I can get the ring terminals at the hardware store for dirt cheap but it just slipped my mind so I would up paying $4each for them :(

    The spades I had to buy there because all the ones at the hardware store won't fit my amp they are too wide.

    For my installation, I bought the ring terminals, and took a drill with a grind stone bit on it and spent a good hour grinding off the edges to my ring terminals.

    A bastard file works well too, leaves it nice and straight.
