"HIGH PERFORMANCE IS OUR FORTE"

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. In 2017, Klipsch re-introduced the Forte as part of the Heritage speaker series. The Forte III featured updated cosmetics and the latest advancements in acoustic engineering while maintaining the original charisma that made the Forte so popular. The Forte IV continues to build on the legacy with a new midrange driver, the same one found on the Cornwall IV. 

USING DOMESTIC AND IMPORTED COMPONENTS

DESIGNED AND MADE IN THE USA

The Klipsch Forte IV enclosure is made in the USA, by proud craftsmen in Hope, Arkansas, just like Paul W. Klipsch (PWK) intended.

HIGH EFFICIENCY AND 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 Klipsch's  patented Mumps technology for even polar response of mid frequencies, giving 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. 

BOOK & PAIR MATCHED FINISHES

Klipsch only uses book-matched wood veneers for the Heritage series. The veneer leaves are kept in order and arranged to provide a mirror image, like turning the pages of a book. 

All Heritage Series loudspeaker pairs are grain-matched using wood veneer panels from the same timber. Each cabinet is carefully matched so each speaker in a pair is practically indistinguishable from the other.
