Default Crossover wiring, common - ?

When wiring a crossover ( my first ), can all threee negative leads off of the speakers have a common terminal?

Or does everything have to follow the order of the schematic?

Yes you can wire them to the same negative terminal.

More difficult and not necessary because controverted : the bi-wiring.
One terminal for the boomer.
One terminal for the tweeter (or tweeter + medium)

So, theoretically, all points that are wired to the negative lead, could be wired to one common point?

I appreciate the help!

I'd make sure that the point coincides with the back of the binding post, it will make woofer-mid-tweeter interference (due to woofer EMF or even a large np electrolytic which can spurt all kinds of garbage out) less possible.
