I honestly don't believe this, myself.
think about this - WHAT are you going to match, exactly? 2 drivers have 2 different curves. are you going to match at 100hz, 1k, 10k? how does one 'compare' mountainous landscapes (freq response curves) and 'match'?
I believe this to be marketing 'justification' for higher prices. I don't buy into it.
what I do buy into is proper manufacturing tolerances where a whole batch can be considered to be inherently matched.
I fully understand matching R's and C's and even transistor HFE's when building amps; but matching driver elements seems like 'audiophile talk' and I'm more of a science guy than that
the 2 drivers they sent me sound 'equal enough' for my ears. not sure what else I'd need and since I'm not buying these as 'test equipment'
