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. Only 70 pairs will be made of this special edition Forte featuring an exotic wood veneer in California Black Walnut and a Lambswool grille cloth. 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. The new Forte III features updated cosmetics and the latest advancements in acoustic engineering, while maintaining the original charisma that made the Forte so popular.

Limited 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

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.

More Depth - Less Deep

The Forte III is designed to fill large rooms with amazing sound without sacrificing too much floor space. At a mere 13" (33cm) deep, the Forte III is the thinner than any Heritage Series or Reference Premiere floor standing speaker - yet still able to deliver incredible, robust acoustics.

Quality Assurance

We built the Forte III with high-quality, heavy-duty bi-wire capable input terminals to cater to your desired audio preference.
