Best place to buy wire by the foot

Just wondering where the cheapest place to by wire by the foot is. I need remote wire, some 8 g, and some 16G speaker wire.

Any suggestions?

Thx

For power wires I usually use 4 guage welding cable from princess auto. Seems to work great but only comes in black. I think it's around $0.40/foot versus $1+ for "pro audio power wire". And you can fabricate lugs using copper toilet filler tube pipes (chrome plated w/ plastic grommet in one end) from home depot.

Someone clue me in if this is a bad idea but I can never seem to find 4 guage terminals/lugs when I need them, same with speaker baffles and other installation accessories.

Shifty.

One of your local car audio dealers would be a great place to start!
