HIGH PERFORMANCE IS OUR FORTE
Since its inception in 1985, the Forte has been a standout speaker. The new Forte IV features updated cosmetics and the latest advancements in acoustic engineering for premium performance.
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.
Because Klipsch Heritage speakers are built to last, we now offer a 10-year warranty on all current and future generation Heritage Classic speakers.
