Paul Wilbur Klipsch (PWK) was an American audio pioneer, a true eccentric and a proud member of the engineering and science hall of fame. He gave rise to speaker technologies that would forever impact generations of music lovers. His passion enabled theirs.

Paul W. Klipsch achieved his objective by making the Klipschorn a fully horn-loaded design—technology that established industry standards for high sensitivity, wide dynamic range, low distortion, smooth frequency response and powerful bass. 

As a result, horn loading has always and will always be the driving force behind the Klipsch brand’s highly efficient, stunningly precise sound.

Paul W. Klipsch believed four principles to be the foundation for great sound. They continue to drive the design of every new Klipsch speaker, today and tomorrow:

High Efficiency: Klipsch utilises horn-loaded technology in each of its speaker categories, minus headphones and subwoofers, because the horn shape results in accurate and dynamic sound transmission.

Low Distortion: Klipsch horn technology reproduces the softest sounds with remarkable clarity and detail and the loudest sounds with no harshness or distortion.

Controlled Directivity: Klipsch horn technology assists in accurately directing sound, which, in turn, creates a more lifelike soundstage.

Flat Frequency Response: Our stunningly accurate speakers offer no unnatural highs, mids or lows, delivering sound as the artist intended.

HIGH PERFORMANCE IS OUR FORTE

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. This special edition Forte will feature an exotic wood veneer in California Black Walnut and a Lambswool grille cloth. This beautiful hardwood is harvested along the West Coast of the United States and is a mixture of wood species created by grafting native California Walnut and English Walnut. The hardwood can range from a pale brown to dark chocolate brown, with darker brown streaks. California Black Walnut may have a colorful, streaked appearance which is sometimes referred to as “marbled Claro walnut”

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.

FEATURES

SPECIAL 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 LOUDSPEAKER

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.

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.

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.

MATCHED PAIRS

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.
