HIGH PERFORMANCE IS OUR FORTE
As part of the re-introduction of the Forte III, Klipsch will memorialize the launch by offering two special edition versions using high end finishes and custom grille treatments. This special edition Forte will feature a Matte Black finish and Silver Luster grille cloth The Matte Black finish will fit almost any decór, whereas the Silver Luster grille cloth will create a beautiful contrast while giving this model a very elegant style.

DESIGNED AND MADE IN THE USA
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.

SPECIAL EDITION
This will be a limited production run. Each speaker will feature a small special edition plaque, located on the back of the enclosure, and is hand-signed by the craftsman.

HIGH EFFICIENCY, HIGH PERFORMANCE LOUDSPEAKER
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.

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.

MATCHED PAIRS
Each finished pair of speakers is inspected and labeled with sequential serial numbers, ensuring the speakers leave the factory as a meticulously crafted set.

BUILT TO LAST
No detail goes unnoticed. Klipsch speakers are built to rock the house and stand the test of time. The Forte III is meticulously handcrafted and assembled using the finest quality materials, even down to the highest-grade adhesives and fasteners. This is a speaker that will be handed down for generations to come.
