The Forte IV is more coherent, sweeter, smoother, and more refined, with a better-defined top end, a warmer midrange, and the same trademark dynamics and low-end weight as the previous Forte version.
Klipsch Forte IV Floorstanding Loudspeakers
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 new Forte IV features updated cosmetics and the latest advancements in acoustic engineering, while maintaining the original charisma that made the Forte so popular
Don’t mess with perfection. We’ve made some important upgrades to the Forte IV, but it remains relatively unchanged since its inception. Remember great sound? We do, too. The Forte IV enclosure is still made in the USA, by proud craftsmen in Hope, Arkansas. Just like Paul W. Klipsch (PWK) intended.
BEST-IN-CLASS EFFICIENCY & PREMIUM PERFORMANCE
The titanium diaphragm high-frequency driver has a new wide dispersion phase plug for a wider, more accurate sweet spot.
An all-new K-702 midrange compression driver ensures exceptional detail and dynamics.
The Tractrix horn, featuring our patented Mumps technology, gives you more consistent sound throughout the listening area.
DON'T MESS WITH PERFECTION
The Forte IV enclosure is hand-assembled in the USA, by proud craftsmen in Hope, Arkansas, just like Paul W. Klipsch intended.
BOOK-MATCHED WOOD VENEER
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.
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.
