Default How to get power?

I have a 96 se with a battery without posts sticking out. What is the best way to hook up the power wire for an amp?

I am assuming you have a side post battery? If so, you can get extended bolts for the battery terminals. The extended bolts look like the stock ones, but has a threaded end sticking out to bolt too. This will leave you plenty of room to bolt on other items. You can pick them up at most autoparts stores.

most wireing kits have o-rings too that can just go around the bolt that goes into the battery still makes a good connection...or you could buy a battery with top and side posts....
