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

So to take examples: Lowther DX3, widely regarded as a great match for SETs, and Beyma 605Nd, high sensitivity pro driver.

Beyma has higher sensitivity and very low distortion.
Both have a rather flat impedance between 300 and 3000Hz.
Both good choices?

Beyma has lower Mms/BL at 0.76 vs 1.16. Beyma also has higher motor strength.

Lowther has much lower Le @ 1kHz: 0.0035mH vs 0.5mH.
Lowther has much higher suspension compliance (Cms)

How do you guys look at Lowthers spec to know it's a better match for a SET? Or maybe it's not the specs but rather word-of-mouth and actual listening experiences demonstrating they are great performers?
