best place to get 1/0 ring terminals?

i just got some 1/0 welding cable (thanks to toddyboy) and i want to do the big three asap.
i bought some 1/0 ring terminals on fleabay but they are taking forever to get here (likely hung up at customs) wheres the best place to get some already in canada?

my local audio shop has told me before he can get them for me but at $3 each (which seems waaaay to high to me)

can anyone recommend a place?

there is no parts source near me.
4/0 is stupid unless competing. this is a daily driver and i dont need to run two 1/0 wires for a battery ground or any part of the big three for that matter. i run of 1/0 is more than plenty
also, i will thank todd and Killer_klown187, since they gave me useful info

crawled up my ***? huh?
i'm simply stating that 4/0 is a stupid choice for my application. i'm sure it's a great idea but doesnt have anything to do with my posted question


if it makes you feel better... thanks yuli for the useful info, but it's not what i'm looking for at the moment

i was thinking u will run 1 ground straight to amp and another to the frame. that's where u could have used a single 4/0 terminal to fit a pair of 1/0's on your battery.

either way, every time you have to connect more than one 1/0 to one place i use bigger size terminals b/c it lets u stick two or three 1/0 wires into one ring terminal. works pretty well, saves you space, time and money.

if u have a canadian tire there they should be able to get some for you, just order 2/0 terminals not 1/0, crappy tire 1/0 are actually smaller than 1/0 welding cable, i dunno why.

actually, that is a good idea. unfortunately i don't have enough wire to go all the way to my amp at the moment. i don't have the cash to do that right now. just trying to do the big three to help solve some electrical issues. (hopefully a new battery if i can swing it, since my stock delco is failing rapidly)

thanks, i'm going to keep that in mind
