Your way to choose drivers
First - what are your goals?
That goes a long way toward driver selection.
Box size?
Box style?
Single driver, 2 way, 3 way?
New or vintage?

All those and more should be taken into consideration.

I'd also ask what your goals are. It is easy to overestimate how much the driver you choose will affect the sound you get, but the way you use it has a significant effect on how it sounds, and choosing a driver that suits your purpose is a part of this.

For example I prefer paper coned woofers with high efficiency and sometimes with low Xmax and high fs. This is in stark contrast to some here but the Xmax and fs is simply a design choice. I tend to prefer the sound of paper cones.
