You may find quite a range of answers on this one but to look at it from a reasonable side of things, you will find things far more important inside your boxes than the wiries going to and from your XO.
But that doesn't stop other from having widely varying opinions on this. As mentioned earlier, I try and be as reasonable as possible when considering what materials to use, where and how.
Beware of snake oil, there is much to seen in this hobby.

I second the cat 5 utp as speaker wire.
8 cores of insulated 24g in each cable. You can bundle as many as you like after stripping off the outer sheath. £40 ($75) per 1000 feet is cheap. Sound nice and clear & 24 core makes good bass cable @ my length of 700mm. 8core to treble and 16 core to mid.
I have not experimented with the clever braiding suggested on some web sites.
regards Andrew T.
