Default Fostex BIB

I've spent hours reading various posts on this forum and finally decided to post for the first time myself.
I'm quite intent on making a pair of BIB's due to their relative ease of build and cost, not to mention MJK's article on the FE167E / BIB combo.
Before I order up any drivers though, I just thought I would ask which driver is best - the FE166E, FE167E or FE168Esigma ?
The BIB's would be tight in the room corners and listened to off-axis as a general rule. Music listened to is jazz,classical,pop,rock etc, but not particularly loudly.
Is there a general consensus on these drivers ?

'Best' is an entirely subjective term, but the Sigma is Fostex's range-topper in that size, & is a very nice unit for what it is, so if you can afford it, that'd be the one to go for.

Thanks Scottmoose.
Once I've burnt in the drivers, I'll no doubt find they are a bit off spec.
The BIB's appear to be fairly forgiving, so is it best to alter the line length and retain the cross-sectional area to account for the variation in driver parameters ?
