I had somebody explain all of the reasoning to me once (I used to use coax for everything,) and don't remember most of it, but the short of it is that EM interference doesn't really effect post-amp signals much at all, and with coax wires you are going to have more issues with the cables getting bent and broken in a typical speaker setup. Plus you can't easily run them inside of walls and underneath flooring. Plus if you are going to use coax, you'd probably want RG6 or else the inner wire will be way too thin.
