Default Power cable won't fit on positive terminal

So I'm trying to install new 10" subs in my car, and the power cable is too small for the positive terminal to screw threw it

Thoughts appreciated

Okay, are you using a terminal crimped onto the end of the power wire or are you saying that the terminal that is on the battery is too small to accommodate another wire onto it?

You can get a new battery terminal here
Or wire ring terminals here....just be sure to get the right size for your gauge of wire

The hole for the end of the power lead to screw to the positive terminal was too small for the positive terminal to screw through it, we ended up working around it by just dremeling the hole to be big enough

I think he means that the hole in the positive battery cable ring terminal was too small to connect it to the battery terminal, so he had to make the hole bigger or trim off some of the ring....i had to do the same because my stock battery ring terminal was not big enough to accommodate another ring terminal....
