I recently had my first home theater system, a Panasonic SA-HT280 go out on me, and I'm now in the market for a new system  However, I've got a potential issue.  When i moved into my house in 2002, I put the surround speakers under the carpet to hide them.  

 

My question is, am I going to be able to reuse those cables, or am I going to have to find a way to hide new cables?  I thought speaker wire was universal, but when I started looking into it, I saw that the official part number for the wires (REE09070A) is officially only compatible with a few Panasonic receivers.

Does this SA-HT280 have plugs on the wires...or normal spring-loaded clips?

Just found pics of the HT280. Plain speaker wire. The only issue would be AWG of the wire. If not at least 16, I would put in new wire.

Thanks!  os there anywhere where I can look of the AWG for REE0970A wire?  I did quick search and came up with nothing.  If it helps the system sent out  8 ohms and  100 watts per channel.
