Default Digital Battery Terminal Install

Just wondering what people are doing to connect your positive wire mess that's in the car to the digital battery terminals.The audio shop close to me has no clue on how to attach.I was thinking buying a o gauge positive copper wire and attaching the two somehow?? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.thnx.

I used a 0 ga "jumper wire" from @1hawaii50. Connected it to the factory wire mess and then to the battery terminal.

No pic - but what I did was disconnect the ring that would go around the battery stud from the factory wiring. That ring is connected to the rest of the wiring mess with a bolt/nut. Take that off then you can connect a "jumper wire" or whatever with a ring terminal.

Sure can. Better to ask questions first, rather than after you've already effed something up.
