    Almost universally, the tweeter terminals are on top, and the woofer terminal are below.

    If you are bi-wiring, it really doesn't matter as long as (+) goes to (+) and (-) goes to (-).

    If you are bi-amping, it really doesn't matter unless one of the amps has significantly more power than the other. The high powered amp should go to the woofer. If the amps are the same size, and they are all receiving same signal, then it doesn't matter which amp goes where.

    Though in practice, just for simplicity sake, you would most likely use matching channels for matching speakers. For example, if you are using the front channels plus channels 6 and 7 on an AV amp. I would put the main channels on the woofer, and channels 6 and 7 on the tweeters. Also, make sure you observe the correct left-right orientation. You don't want the left front channel on the left woofer, and the right rear channel on the left tweeter. Just common sense here.
