With my DIY builds I generally use the same gauge speaker wire inside a cab as gets used outside, so that means sub cabs will get heavier wire than mid/high boxes. But that produces a mechanical problem in some cases, the weight of the wire can put strain on the driver terminals so it may need to be clipped to the internal structure of the enclosure to prevent damage occurring over time when the cabs are moved around. 

It's not uncommon to find some really small wire inside mass produced speakers, that might seem like an oversight but the wire in the driver voicecoils and on components in a passive crossover is also really small so it's not as bad as it seems. 
But if you find rigid and/or bare wire inside a cab I doubt that is original, it should always be flexible and insulated.
