i have noticed that i do not have grub screws for my amps. i am wondering if ring or grub terminals would be best to use. i am thinking that is the only way.

Insert-style connections are designed to work with a fork terminal, and nothing else:
I prefer to use fork terminals, mostly for ease of use, easy to disconnect (if you use rings you have to take the screw all the way out and that's one way of losing them) and not having to worry about frayed wires touching each other when just wrapping the wire into the amp terminals like I see a lot of guys doing.
You can of course get the Fork terminals in lot's of sizes, so you can use it for your 4g inputs too.

When you think about it when the screw is just touching most of the time its not shielded by the plastic surround. So if it touches the chassis it will short.
