Default which sounds more open a driver with Cms of 4mm/N or 1.6mm/N?

Im designing a driver and here I have a situation where the driver need to have either low or higher cms of the suspension.

Im getting one value as 1.6mm/N and another with 4mm/N.

As the meaning of the Cms means that its inverse of stiffness so if the cms value is higher then the suspension is loose and hence can open more details in sound thats what I think is it right? I do agree that it will have good lower Fs which ofcourse Im looking at but how about the low level details will they be good with higher Cms?

*BUMP* I want to know the answer too. I too have noticed more detailed sound in drivers with looser suspension.
