4 awg 4ga Spade / Fork Terminals 2pcs KY

It never fails, every time I get working on something.... there's some little stupid thing stopping me.

My new amp states that it requires 4 awg power & ground wires, no problem except that it has stupid screw terminals for spade/fork terminals, NOT the more common "hole" with a clamping screw to hold the bare wire (as I thought it would be).

I have plenty of EVERY other spade terminal EXCEPT for a 4ga!

I only need TWO spade terminals for 4awg power/ground wire, but the spade needs to be about 5/16" wide to fit in the screw terminal housing.
Gold plated would be great & I don't even need the rubber boots, I'll just crimp 'em on & heat shrink the ends.

Already tried using a 4ga ring terminal, cutting off the sides & front to fit, no luck, the 1/4" hole doesn't leave enough metal for a good connection.
Also tried opening up the "crimp" end of an 8ga spade terminal, it doesn't like the bigger 4ga wire at all. Looks like a 600 pound woman in a thong.

I need 'em pretty quick but I can't justify spending $20 for 2 terminals on evilbay. None of the auto parts stores around here carry spade terminals (only ring terminals) in 4ga.

Does anyone have a couple extras they could bare to part with for a little $$$ ???

Help would be greatly appreciated.

Best Buy carries them in the install bay area, they're like $5 for 4. Or go to any local car audio place
