Dude any automotive store should have what you need.
Also, get some good thicker stuff, don't use the thin figure 8 wire.
Also, any electrical wholesaler (eg: Middy's) would have some decent cable.
Probably cost you about $10-$15 for 5m of good cable.

For the stuff that would cost you $1.10 a metre, it would only be a figure 8 cable. (thin stuff)
The cable i'd use myself would cost around $3-4 a metre, but its good thick cable, with thicker insulation around the cable.
It's just a speaker wire, but a lot thicker than the usual stuff.

JB-HiFi sell stinger speaker cables. They are pretty good but are pretty dear. I have about 5metres here but I am going to need it for my own install...cost me $20 for 15m...good to have connections at JB ;)
