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

Yes, that is how a 1/4 wave based, (Figure 8) pattern is created, like the H box as cited by Martin King's papers. The bass that is cancelled is the bass that would emanate on the sides, where it's not needed or wanted. By spacing the cabinet far away from the front and side walls, the rear bass arrives at the listener greater than 20 milliseconds in time. Open baffle speakers have a pleasant 3 Dimensonal presentation that is uncanny.

Go read the work of Sigfried Linkwitz, of Linkwitz-Riley filter fame on open baffle for technical details that required many years of work on his part.

Instead of criticizing something you have never tried, you might want to go and build one, then compare notes with those who have done it.

Fair enough?
