that is called the tinsel wire. it is pretty hard to replace depending on how your subs have them integrated into it. it is the wire that connects the subwoofer's voice coil to the input terminals.

"I replace lead wire all the time, its not that difficlut to do. Tinsel lead is light gauge wire wound with fiberglass strands for streangth. The wires are set to certain leangth to prevent slapping against the cone or pulling out if to short. Using connector or soldering in jumper is a tempory solution. These wires take alot of vibration and any hard spots in the wire will break. Try finding a "blowen" speaker and steal its lead, if you cant find "new", your solution with 16g will work."
- found that online.

if you have any lighter gauge wire that is very flexible you can do it. just be careful.
