If so, so what?
Manufacturers of high quality loudspeaker drivers care very much about the characteristics of the wire they use to wind their voice coils, e.g. the electrical parameters of the wire and its insulation, the geometry of the wire, how it's wound on the former, etc.
The purpose of the voice coil wire is to produce a magnetic field. The wire going from the amp to the loudspeaker terminals serves a different purpose, so there's no basis for comparing their performance.

Actually, there is basis for performance comparisonss The purpose of the "wires" in both examples you cite is to conduct an electrical current. Physical configurations of conductors may be arranged to take advantage of the consequences of a "flowing" electrical current. In the case of a voice coil, low loss and low mass are also usually considered important. In the case of audiophile grade speaker cables, visual impressiveness is typically as important as electrical properties if not more so. ;-)
To confuse the issue with facts for this segment of the audience. :)
