When we install a custom car audio sound system we will of course add a new power wire to connect the battery to our new amplifiers and other equipment. But the problem in many newer cars is the stock battery terminal may have a fusible link, or other electronic device installed directly on the stock terminal which means, we can't simply cut it and remove it. We need a way to retain it. The ultimate battery terminal from Knukonceptz allows us to do just that!

      I use the extended gm lug, but i cant add much since it can only accept so much due to limited space between battery and fuse box.

      Be mindful on the negative side of the battery. Many modern battery systems use an electrical load detector as part of a battery monitoring system, which provides information to the Engine Idle Shutdown in modern vehicles. If you tie directly to the negative battery terminal, you are bypassing this system and may run into problems. Instead, you should connect to the same ground point as the negative battery cable or somewhere nearby.

      Awesome thanks for this! I stumbled on it by accident bu have needed this for my non-audio 4X4 and it's on board air compressor and winch. I must have looked for over an hour at various less than ideal terminals and didn't find any this versatile.

      the hold for the terminal shouldnt be blind but a through hole, you cant monitor the fit or corrosion nor ream it to clean it.

      You should have made them so the post is able to connect to either side, your not going to have clearance on some cable clamps to attach them to the posts if there are on top of the battery.

      What were the unique cable ends that you placed into this battery terminal? I will now search the interweb to try and discover them.

      Ive had those terminals for 5 years. Very anti corrosion but the side lugs constantly loosen. Still pleased and recommend to everyone.

      Hey CarAudioFabrication guy, first of thank you for this video. The gadget you demonstrated might be what I need (have been looking for). Here's my issue (feed back would be greatly appreciated), I installed a CB radio and I wired it directly to the battery (red to positive, black to negative) the radio worked fine with no issues for about a two years. Lately the radio (which I turn off when not in use), has started to drain my battery.


      At first (after having a dead battery four or five times in a span of a week), I thought my battery was just old and needed to be replaced. I replaced the battery and the very next morning I needed to jump start my car again. So I disconnected my CB from the battery and it is now powered via a cigarette lighter power adapter and I've had no more issues with a dead car battery since I took this action.


      I don't like having the CB powered through the cigarette lighter adapter, it looks tacky and I dislike having to plug and unplug all the time. I liked having the CB powered directly to the battery. Will this gadget keep my CB from draining my battery?

      No it won't help. What you need to do is tap into the ignition 12v+ (has 12v+ when car is on). Wire that 12v ignition lead into a relay, and that relay will switch on/off with the vehicle.

      You "could" power the radio directly from that 12v+ ignition wire, but the relay isolates the radio from the car's computer wiring. Instead of having to power a CB radio, the ignition wire will only have to power a little electromagnetic switch.

      Also, make sure to put a snubber diode on the relay coil. Poorly designed computers can be damaged by the voltage spike of the relay coil.

      I have perhaps a noob question, I see at 5:24 in the video you install the power wires in, what are the connectors called that are on the ends of the amp power cable? Thanks!

      I bought these because I needed a place to hook up 4ga power and ground wires and didn't want to cut the harness on my new Subaru. They are fantastic, they really are the ultimate battery terminals. I had a problem with the threads on one one of them but knuconceptz took care of me. Now to get some wire ferrules in there!
