Klipsch Rolls Out New Forte Speaker
Audio brand Klipsch has unveiled its new Forte IV speaker as it celebrates its 75th anniversary.
Available in four finishes, the Forte IV is part of Klipsch’s Heritage Series and features a cabinet made in the USA. Its three-way design includes a 12” woofer, horn-loaded midrange and tweeter, and titanium compression drivers that Klipsch says create a smooth and powerful response. A rear-mounted 15” passive radiator increases bass output and extension.
For users tight on space, the Forte IV has a shallow 13” footprint while still delivering what Klipsch bills as quality, room-filling sound.
“The original Forte is an American classic that made its debut in 1985 to much fanfare but was out of production from 1996 until its third iteration was introduced in 2017.
“The new Klipsch Forte IV speakers feature updated cosmetics and the latest advancements in acoustic engineering, while maintaining the elegant design and powerful performance that have made them so popular,” the manufacturer said.
Official Australian pricing and availability have yet to be confirmed, but the Forte IV speakers are selling for $4500 USD ($5904 AUD) a pair. Klipsch last year ditched QualiFi as a partner, moving to a direct distribution model in Australia.
