KLIPSCH FORTE III FLOORSTANDING SPEAKERS – HERITAGE CLASSIC

First introduced in 1985, the Forte quickly established itself as the most popular Klipsch model. The elegant design and outstanding performance made the Forte a standout among its competitors.

HIGH EFFICIENCY + HIGH PERFORMANCE
The Forte III hosts a three-way design utilizing a 12” woofer and horn-loaded midrange and tweeter. The new Forte III utilizes all new state of the art drivers including midrange and tweeter titanium compression drivers for a smooth and powerful response. The Forte III’s new midrange horn utilizes patented technology to improve coverage and control of the key mid-frequency band.


NEW PATENTED MIDRANGE
The Forte III’s new midrange horn utilizes patented technology to improve coverage and control of the key mid-frequency band. There’s no listening experience like it on Earth.


DESIGNED AND MADE IN THE USA
USING DOMESTIC AND IMPORTED COMPONENTS
Don’t mess with perfection. We’ve made some important upgrades to the Forte III, but it remains relatively unchanged since its inception. Remember great sound? We do, too. The Forte III enclosure is still made in the USA, by proud craftsmen in Hope, Arkansas. Just like Paul W. Klipsch (PWK) intended.


15″ PASSIVE RADIATOR
YIELDS FULL RANGE PERFORMANCE
In the back of the cabinet, the Forte III has a secret. The Forte III’s well-extended bass is found in the use of a rear-mounted passive radiator. A mammoth 15” (38 cm) in size, this sub-bass radiator operates on acoustic pressure generated by the woofer for greater bass output and extension.


PERFECTION AT THE GRANULAR LEVEL
Each pair of Forte III loudspeakers is grain-matched using wood veneer panels that come from the same timber. Each cabinet is carefully matched so that each speaker in the pair is practically indistinguishable from the other. The speakers move seamlessly together through the factory. Each finished product is inspected and labeled with sequential serial numbers, ensuring that each pair of speakers leave the factory as a meticulously crafted set.


MORE DEPTH – LESS DEEP
The Forte III is designed to fill large rooms with amazing sound without sacrificing too much floorspace. At a mere 13″ (33cm) deep, the Forte III is the thinner than any Heritage Series or Reference Premiere floorstanding speaker – yet still able to deliver incredible, robust acoustics.
