Look here:

2.7 are three-way speakers with planer-dynamic woofer and midrange plus quasi-ribbon tweeter, which is essentially a modified planer-dynamic section. All three sections will look pretty similar and it may be hard to tell the difference without taking the socks off. the tweeter will be just a strand or three at the edge of the midrange panel. The easiest way is to put your ear right up to the m (do not play loudly!) and move across. you will hear the transition from bass to mids to highs.

Another question. When would you place tweeters on outer side, as opposed to inner? I suppose outer makes more sense if they are close to each other

It's whatever you prefer in the sound you are receiving. I found placing the ribbon tweeter on the outside worked better for the sound I wanted. Others prefer the ribbon tweeter on the inside. My speakers are spaced a little over 5-feet away from each other (from inner edge to inner edge) and about 7-feet from center to center.
