Description

The original Forte is an American classic that made its debut in 1985 to much fanfare but was out of production from 1996 until its third iteration was introduced in 2017. The new Klipsch Forte IV Floorstanding Speakers feature updated cosmetics and the latest advancements in acoustic engineering, while maintaining the elegant design and powerful performance that have made them so popular.


FEATURES:

  • The speaker hosts a three-way design utilizing a 12” woofer and horn-loaded midrange and tweeter, with all new state of the art titanium compression drivers for a smooth and powerful response.
  • All new K-702 midrange compression driver mated to a modified proprietary Tractrix® horn with patented Klipsch Mumps technology for even mid frequencies and consistent sound throughout the listening area.
  • A newly designed wide dispersion high frequency phase plug to ensure the last octave matches the coverage pattern of the midrange and high frequency horns.
  • The rear-mounted 15” passive radiator produces greater bass output and extension.
  • The Forte IV has been completely revoiced from its predecessor, utilizing premium componentry in an all-new high-fidelity network for truer to life sound with best-in-class efficiency and power handling.
  • Premium aluminum input panels accommodate large, high-quality speaker cables, while strong binding posts allow for bi-wiring or bi-amping.
  • At just 13” deep, the Klipsch Forte IV solves space issues with its narrow, shallow footprint, while still delivering room-filling, quality sound.

HIGH EFFICIENCY + HIGH PERFORMANCE
The Forte IV hosts a three-way design utilizing a 12” woofer and horn-loaded midrange and tweeter. The Forte IV incorporates an all new K-702 midrange compression driver, featuring a polyimide diaphragm for exceptional detail and dynamics. The K-702 midrange is mated to a modified Tractrix® horn — featuring our patented Mumps technology for even polar response of mid frequencies, giving you more consistent sound throughout the listening area. The titanium diaphragm high-frequency driver has an all-new wide dispersion phase plug for providing exceptionally even high-frequency dispersion for a wider, more accurate sweet spot.


PASSIVE RADIATOR YIELDS FULL RANGE PERFORMANCE
The Forte IV’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 active woofer for greater bass output and extension.


NETWORK
The Forte IV has been completely revoiced from its predecessor, utilizing premium componentry in an all new high-fidelity network — minimizing electrical degradation throughout the circuitry — for truer to life sound with best in class efficiency and power handling. The new network draws from the classic three-way steep slope design of the legendary Klipschorn and La Scala speakers


BI-AMP INPUT PANEL AND BINDING POSTS
The Forte’s premium, aluminum input panel accommodates large, high-quality speaker
cables. Strong, versatile and quality binding posts provide the capability for bi-wiring
or bi-amping.


BOOK-MATCHED WOOD VENEER
Klipsch only uses book-matched wood veneers for the Heritage series. The veneer leaves are kept in order as they are delicately sliced from the timber and precisely arranged to provide a mirror image at the splice joint — like turning the pages of a book. This gives each speaker an aesthetically appealing and consistent appearance that is treasured more than any other cut of wood veneer.


BUILT TO LAST
While each and every component of the Forte IV is built to last, Klipsch has always recognized the unique and critical role of a loudspeaker’s cabinet in the sound reproduction process. From the craftsmen in Hope, AR to the engineers in Indianapolis,IN, Klipsch has always put an extraordinary emphasis on cabinet design. The Forte enclosure is assembled using only the highest-grade adhesives and fasteners. This is a speaker you will hand down from generation to generation.
