Look at the picture below, and you'll know why you can't.

you can, but you'd have to buy some new terminal posts which will have individual connectors for your tweeter and low/mid driver ( this will require some modifications to the back of the speaker). You would also have to take out your existing passive crossover and connect your tweeter and low/mid directly to the terminal posts.

Besides the modification to the speakers you'd have to get an active crossover and then use individual amps for tweeter and low/mid drivers.
Theoritically you would need 4 amps for stereo bi-wiring. You have to be careful about the phase coherence of the active cross over also.
