Help w/ amp wiring, what size nut/bolt???

I'm adding an amp/sub to my stereo and was trying to bolt the amp HOT wire to the "power distribution" box, it between the battery and the strut. I can't remove the nut on it as I've tried to do it and the whole box is twisting and breaking so I was going to add a nut and just bolt it on over the other 2 lugs. There is enough threads I just need 2 know what size it is...... THANXS.....

maybe im too drunk but i didnt follow.. i just setup my car for a amp/sub like 2 weeks ago.. all i did was ran the power cable straight from the battery, to the passenger side, stuck a philips head in one of the black rubber pieces going through the firewall and squezed the wire in through there. then ran the wire all the way to the trunk.. then i ran two rca's and a seperate wire (for 'remote') to the trunk as well. so you should have:

power cable from battery to trunk..
rca/remote wire (i used a 4conductor) from cd player to trunk
power/rca/remote to the amp
speaker wire from amp to sub

I connected the 4 ga. amp hot wire to the power distribution box (its like another fuse box) but I connected it to the battery side. The large bat. cable goes to it (pdb) and to the starter. The reason I didn't put it straight to the batery is then I'd have to buy a new battery post end so that big wire would fit. But I did have a spade end that I could bolt on so... thats what I did. And the rest is cake. I used to work @ a stereo shop as an installer as a teen....
