sepKlipsch® has announced the release of the new Forte™ III loudspeaker, one of its best-selling speakers of all time. The Forte III is a member of the Klipsch Heritage series and the loudspeaker cabinet is handcrafted at the Hope plant. The original Forte was first introduced in 1985 to much fanfare, but has been out of production since 1996.
The Forte III features updated cosmetics and the latest advancements in acoustic engineering, while maintaining the original design and performance that made it popular years ago.
Each pair of Forte III loudspeakers is grain-matched using wood veneer panels that are harvested from the same timber. The speakers move together through the factory and the finished product is inspected and labeled with sequential serial numbers, ensuring that each pair of speakers is a matched set.
The Forte III (MSRP $1,800 ea.) is available in four standard finish options – American Walnut, Natural Cherry, Black Ash, and new Distressed Oak.
Additionally, a limited production run of 70 pairs of Forte III’s are available in two unique finishes. The California Black Walnut version features a lambswool grille cloth (MSRP $2,300 ea.), while the Matte Black finish boasts silver luster grille cloth (MSRP $2,000 ea.). Both special edition Forte III models include a commemorative back plate hand-signed by the craftsman.
