+1 I have 14awg Mono Price in wall wire. The lower the gauge the better for signal transfer and there are major benefits in case of long distance runs.

If you plan to leave them be. bare wire is best. If your like many of us always moving things, then banana plugs are nice.

Yep, or locking banana plugs.
Make sure binding posts are tight on the bare wire.
