i'm looking for some suggestions on good quality speaker cable to power 100 watt RMS components through Apline MRP F600. Please provide input with places in Chennai or Bangalore where i can buy.

Some nice cable products that you will most certainly find in your area: Kicker, Scosche, Monster... any of these will work well for you.

you need to specify a budget before you can get specific advice.
a pair of components with an amp in the boot would require 10-14metres of wire i tihink

Buy any Speaker wire but check for these following:
1. Needs to be a OFC (Oxygen Free Cable).
2. Copper strands. And check if the wire has more strands.
3. 16 swg wire should do well (you can also choose a 14swg for better performance.
please note use a 18 or 20swg wire for the tweeters.

Excellent answer.

14 carries more current (coz it has more strands) and hence?
