I would probably get some more appropriate wire, but in general, yes, you should be able to splice in some other wire. Most speaker wire can be split by pulling the two conductors apart. make sure that the wire is of at least a similar size, and be sure to insulate the splice well.
It's not a terribly difficult job, but there are things that can go wrong.
