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 it’s
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
BOOK-MATCHED WOOD VENEER
Klipsch only uses book-matched wood veneers for the Heritage
series. The veneer leaves are kept in order as they are delicately sliced from
the timber and precisely arranged to provide a mirror image at the splice joint
— like turning the pages of a book. This gives each speaker a more
aesthetically appealing and consistent appearance that is treasured more than
any other cut of wood veneer.
PERFECTION AT THE GRANULAR LEVEL
Each pair of Forte III loudspeakers is grain-matched using
wood veneer panels that come from the same timber. Each cabinet is carefully
matched so that each speaker in the pair is practically indistinguishable from
the other. The speakers move seamlessly together through the factory. Each
finished product is inspected and labeled with sequential serial numbers, ensuring
that each pair of 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.
MORE DEPTH - LESS DEEP
The Forte III is designed to fill large rooms with amazing
sound without sacrificing too much floorspace. At a mere 13" (33cm) deep,
the Forte III is the thinner than any Heritage Series or Reference
Premiere floorstanding speaker - yet still able to deliver incredible,
FINISH IN STYLE

finishes including Distressed Oak, Cherry, Black Ash and Walnut - all designed
to blend into your home's décor.
We built the Forte III with high-quality, heavy-duty bi-wire capable input terminals to cater to your desired audio preference.
