Smile Need help ID'ing these wires coming out of my wall!

Can anyone help me figure out what this other wire is coming out of the box with the coaxial cable? And more importantly, if its something I'm likely not using and can get rid of? Previous owner has a house radio system with speakers in most rooms. There was also a previous security system in the house. I feel like it's probably nothing important any more... any help is appreciated!

I see what appears to be a telephone wire going to an unused jack.

Cables

I also see a coaxial cable and connector at the outlet box.

I've moved this to the electrical forum as it really isn't a question about walls and ceilings, it has to do with wires and boxes.
