Do you guys think it's worth paying $15 per tweet to have them matched on a DIY project or not? the price of the tweeter in question is approx $100 per unit.

Thanks, Adrian

Adrian, I suppose it would depend on how much difference there was between the spec for the "unmatched" pairs and the tighter tolerance claimed when matched.

I have to admit, I'm a little bit concerned about the tolerances on tweeters being so poor that they have to match them.

Decided to not get the tweeters matched. It's debatable whether any very minor differences between tweeters, assuming there is some, are actually adible. Thanks for the input guys.
