they look like 10 or 12 gauge. i have some sky high wire thats oversized so i understand thats no help. but i dont understand such small terminals for a 1000 watt rms rating and we all know thats conservative. i was reading 12 gauge is really only good up to about 750 watts rms. but can i use a reducer on my 8 gauge and still get the full power from that and plug the reducer into the terminal? once the size is figured out. i had some custom 12 r3s that had 8 gauge terminals but going to be running these v2 on an sia 3500 as soon as i find somebody who can install my custom alt into a 2020 kia soul

If you want to use a reducer, use a reducer. You will get all the benefits of the bigger 8 awg wire using one. And honestly, knowing the terminals don't except 8 awg, I would recommend using one, especially on a SIA 3500.

i appreciate the quick response, but do you know the actual size of the stock terminals? that way i can buy the correct reducer lol.

half of the sky high oversized wire wont fit, more like 1/3rd of it will. i think im just going to see if i can find some 4 gauge push terminals to replace these since it looks like a simple job. but cant even find those

then that would be about 7 gauge? you probably have 4 gauge terminals on yours but i definitely have 10 or 12. im going to end up just redoing my wiring so im not dealing with this sky high stuff even though i have my amp to smd bolt terminals looking clean on the outside. i have a spool of ofc 12 gauge from audio legion so i might just do the same and twist some ends together
