What is the size of the clip terminals on the back? Curious because I want to buy these but replace them with Banana plug terminals.
It looks like these use a very similar press fit style terminal as the one below. After a rough measurement, the cutout appears to be 1-7/8" diameter.http://www.parts-express.com/round-pressfit-speaker-wire-terminal-cup-spring-type--260-295

Adding an inductor.
So if a capacitor helps out the tweeters, would applying an inductor help the woofer? And if not, how easy are these to work with in terms of swapping out speakers to achieve better sound?
I looked at the documentation for this speaker and there is no schematic available to review what the manufacturer has done with it internally. Typically, there is an inductor rolling off the woofer at 6db/oct and another network rolling off and protecting the tweeter at 12db/oct. You should have no need to modify the crossover. If you do want to upgrade the drivers, the crossover would remain the same only if the new driver had the same efficiency as the other and had the same cabinet size requirements. It's usually better just to buy another speaker or build a new project...
