From your first post, it sounds like your current in-wall has one woofer and two tweeters, correct? This is a very unusual configuration. I don't know I've ever seen it before. What you have to remember is with bi/di-pole speakers it's not only the number of speakers, but how they're situated dirtectionally.

For music and some surround programs you want a diffuse (ambient) sound to fill in the space bringing you into the venue. For this reason the tweeters are usually pointing 180 degrees from each other, with the woofer pointing toward the listener and the tweeter planes facing to the front and rear of the room. You won't get the same effect as having the tweeters pointing in the same direction as with an in-wall or in-ceiling design. There are in-wall/in-ceiling speakers configured with their speakers facing in opposite directions specifically for this reason.

To answer you question about your speakers, for di-pole you would need to ensure both tweeters are wired in-phase, for bi-pole the tweeters are wired out-of-phase.
