Need speakers that can rock with just one watt? You found da place.

What attributes make a driver a good match for a SET?

I'm building an active system where a 45-based SET will drive the midrange driver, operating 300/400Hz to 2/2.2kHz. What attributes should I look out for in a driver to make it a good match?

Initially I thought high sensitivity (>100 dB/2.83V.1m) and high impedance, but after looking further into it I'm wondering if those are good starting points.
I see, for example, Lowthers come in 15 ohm, but are "only" 95-96 dB/W, yet are highly regarded for use with SETs.
Tang Band W8 also are higly regarded with SETs and are 93dB/W and are 8 ohm. Yet an AE TD10M also is 8ohm and 94dB/W, a great driver by many accounts, but I have yet to come by a post suggesting it's a great match with a SET.

So what should I look for?

Thank you!
