You could use 14ga wire, the OEM wire is only about 18ga (smaller than the 14ga) but I like to go a little over what's needed.
If you have 16ga or 14ga speaker wire, you should be ok. Just crimp on a ring terminal on a short piece of wire & give it a shot.

As long as the insulation on the wire is good & you ensure no stray wire strands cone into contact with any metal, you should be good to go.

I use speaker wire for general wiring all the time (or whenever I run out of plain old hook up wire). Sometimes the speaker wire will have finer strands of individual wires than regular wire, but as long as it's the right gauge, wire is wire... electricity won't know the difference if it's speaker wire, hookup wire, telephone wire, or chicken wire as long as it's the right size for the job.
