How much is the Hertz set?
The experience/pleasure you gain from building you own is priceless, at least to me.

350$ for the hertz isn't all that bad. You will spend around that piecing together a solid set for 3-way setup anyways. Are you going to be running active or using a crossover network that comes with a 3-way set? But piecing together a setup can result is some serious sq capabilities, great sounding setups for sure.

I'm very happy with my 3way front stage. I wasn't at first because tuning can be a pain in the ass but I'm getting the hang out of. I have silver flute 8s, tectronic 3.5''s and Vifa Tweeters.

I also enjoy choosing my own drivers. Half the fun (and headache at times lol) is shopping for components.

DEFINITELY build your own.
I've shown a few setups to coworkers who spent over a grand on some JL and Alpine 3-ways and you should have seen the frowns when they heard my ~$120 2-ways setup.

Active would be the (simpler) route if you don't know much about crossover design. Don't just punch in some values in a crossover calculator because that's not enough; have to account for notch filters, eq filters, phase, etc.
